Reigning F1 world champion Max Verstappen’s Silverstone qualifying verdict was drowned out by a chorus of boos as the British crowd showed their support for Lewis Hamilton. The duo fought hard in a controversial battle for the world title last season, but the Red Bull star has held the upper hand so far in 2022, and finished ahead of the seven-time world champion once again on Saturday.
“It was quite a tricky quali with the rain,” the Dutchman explained to Sky Sports, amping up the volume due to the boos. “Also, because it was raining and then dry you had to find pace at the right time, but the car was working well.
“Q3 can be a bit of a lottery sometimes. But still, to be on the front row is very good for us and we have a good race car in the dry and the wet. Success tomorrow is not just about the first lap but the whole race, tyre management and things like that.”
