Carlos Sainz expressed his words after winning his maiden Formula 1 race. The Champ said I don’t know what to say – it’s amazing. My first race wins, 150 races later, with Ferrari and in Silverstone. Thanks, everyone. Lewis was on it I heard, but I managed to hold on. It was not easy, I struggled a lot with the balance on the first stint. All of a sudden the safety car gave us a chance to get back in it and we did it.”

Carlos Sainz won a pulsating British Grand Prix – after a horrifying and dangerous 160mph smash incident caused a long delay to the race. It was so crazy.

Ferrari made an absolute mess of their drivers’ title campaign, however, sacrificing their No 1 Charles Leclerc by not bringing him for fresh tyres during a late safety car phase. That allowed Sainz to claim his first-ever win. It was one of the greatest matches.

 Hamilton before the match said Hamilton earlier said on Sky: "I gave it everything. I tried to chase down those Ferraris but they were too quick.

"I was in the battle with Checo but those guys are too quick on the straights.

"I am so grateful for the hard work that the team did, to get an upgrade. We took a step closer.

"We lost time in the pitstop. I was chasing, chasing, chasing.

"We have improvements to make. This is a huge bonus to be on the podium.

"I'm glad everyone is safe from the crash at the beginning."

After the match, he talked to the champion Carlos Sainz. He congratulates him.

As it happend

Once Sebastian Vettel had delighted fans with a carbon neutral-fuelled demo run in the 1992 Williams FW14B that he owns, and the grid full of celebrities – including Tom Cruise, Stormzy and the FW14B’s original driver, Nigel Mansell – had been escorted to safety, it was time for the real business of racing to get underway.

It wasn’t raining as it was during qualifying on Saturday, but it wasn’t exactly bright sunshine – menacing clouds looming with intent and a strong wind blowing. Race control had the risk of rain at 20% – but the clouds soon dissipated, leaving us with a dry race.

Verstappen nailed the start from P2, having opted for soft tyres compared to pole-sitter Sainz on the mediums to claim the lead, as Hamilton aced his own getaway to climb from P5 above Leclerc to P3. However, the red flags were soon flying after an incident at Turn 1 involving George Russell, Pierre Gasly and Zhou Guanyu, followed by a separate one down the order involving Sebastian Vettel, Esteban Ocon, Yuki Tsunoda, and Alex Albon.

Zhou and Albon were both taken to the medical centre conscious, after what had been a pair of ugly crashes. The FIA then announced that the race would see a standing restart with the grid reset to its original positions – Zhou, Albon and Russell now ruled out of the proceedings, while those who enjoyed a good getaway the first time around had it all to do again.

With Albon starting P16 and Zhou P9, Zhou was caught up in an incident involving Pierre Gasly and George Russell that watched his Alfa Romeo make heavy contact with the barriers – with another incident behind involving Albon, Sebastian Vettel, Esteban Ocon and Yuki Tsunoda. It was a terrible moment.

Champion Moment

Sainz was in the lead with Charles Leclerc close behind and, while Ferrari at first said they were “free to fight,” the Italian team then asked Sainz to let Leclerc past to avoid losing time to Lewis Hamilton.

But a safety car came out in this terrible moment and Ferrari brought Sainz into the pits for fresher, grippier soft tires. Leclerc was left on older, hard tires and Sainz soon passed his teammate to regain the lead and pull away for his first victory in his 150th F1 start. It was great to work with the Safety boys.

The action was frenetic in the final laps, however, with Perez – who’d dropped to P16 after a pit stop, having had contact at the early race restart following a red-flag stoppage – coming out on top in a thrilling fight with Hamilton and Ferrari's Charles Leclerc to take an unlikely P2.

Hamilton was setting a stirring pace on his ageing medium tyres at the front, as he tried to make his overcut work on the Ferraris. On Lap 31, Sainz was ordered to move over, has not matched the pace delta the team had set, with Leclerc released into P2. Even though Hamilton was 18s up the road from Leclerc, this virtual race was tense stuff, as the engineers’ prediction software on the pit walls and back at mission control crunched crucial numbers.

“I can’t maintain this pace forever,” said Hamilton after the race, and Mercedes took pity on Lap 33, bringing him in for hards on what was a sluggish 4.3s stop, with an issue on the rear-left. He emerged third, around 4s behind Leclerc and Sainz – and not hugely impressed at that fact.

World Champion Max Verstappen finished right in the corner.

Carlos Sainz will never forget his first Formula 1 Race Win. He will be congratulated by many for a long time.
