Hungarian GP Preview
  In Budapest

The season's second half begins with this weekend’s Hungarian Grand Prix in Budapest on the 4.381-kilometer (2.722-mile), 14-turn Hungaroring, a tight circuit that many drivers liken to a full-size karting track. It is the slowest permanent venue in Formula One, a juxtaposition from the ultrafast and flowing Silverstone Circuit where drivers recently competed in the British Grand Prix.

Mercedes romps to easy 1-2 at Silverstone
  Can't beat an Aldo Costa designed car

Mercedes scored an easy 1-2 at Silverstone on Sunday and it was never more evident than today how superior the Aldo Costa designed cars are. While both Ferraris blew their left front tire trying to catch the Mercedes, the two Mercedes were flawless.  Lewis Hamilton led every lap and won his 4th straight British GP and his 5th overall, tying Jim Clark. Kimi Raikkonen limped home in third place after stopping to change his blown Pirelli tire.

Hamilton easily wins pole for British GP
  Raikkonen to start 2nd

Lewis Hamilton blew out the competition in qualifying for the British GP - more than half a second clear of the chasing pack. It was a record-equaling fifth Silverstone pole, and a third in a row for Hamilton. It leaves him one shy of equaling Schumacher for most F1 poles ever. Hamilton's lap of 1m26.600s was 0.547 sec faster than Kimi Raikkonen's Ferrari. Sebastian Vettel will start third after he was unable to improve his time on his final run because his team set him out in traffic that balked him.

Silverstone will be true test for new high-downforce cars
  Look for some real high speeds this weekend

It's the true test that the 2017 iteration of Formula One has been waiting for. Silverstone - the high-speed 5.891 km circuit, home to the British Grand Prix - is where fans will really see what these new beasts can do.  Silverstone was the fastest circuit on the F1 calendar back in the 1980s and, while repeated layout tweaks mean that particular honor now lies with Monza, the historic Northamptonshire track still boasts some of the most spectacular high-speed corners in world motorsport. Abbey, Copse, Maggots and Becketts, Stowe... this is a circuit where it's easier to count the bends that aren't high-speed. The perfect playground, then, for the current generation of Grand Prix machinery. 

Haas F1 preview the British GP
The 5.891-kilometer (3.660-mile), 18-turn Silverstone Circuit that is roughly a two-hour drive from London is considered one of Formula One’s power circuits. It is one of the series’ fastest venues, with an average speed of around 225 kph (140 mph) that is certain to increase after this year’s British Grand Prix thanks to the blindingly-quick speeds drivers are able to achieve with the current-generation car that is lower, wide and demonstrably faster.
