For the third event on the race calendar, we were at the Hungaroring for the Hungarian Grand Prix. Starting the race with both cars on the front row, Lewis built up an impressive lead from lights out, getting away from the rest of the field. Valtteri didn't have the same getaway and unfortunately lost position. Despite rainfall during the race, in the final laps Valtteri managed to catch up to P2 and fought to take the second step on the podium. Although unsuccessful in taking P2, a double podium was a positive result from Hungary and left us in good standing for the next stop, Silverstone, which would also host two races.
The Team had good performance at the first Silverstone race with another front row lockout, with Lewis on pole. This continued into the race, with Lewis and Valtteri holding P1 and P2 respectively. However, just 2 laps from the chequered flag, Valtteri suffered a tyre issue forcing him to pit, seeing him drop out of the points. Verstappen, who was on fresh tyres in the hope of setting fastest lap, inherited P2. Disappointment turned to drama as Lewis suffered a similar issue with just half a lap to go. The front-left tyre deflated, and left Lewis limping to try and bring the win home with a fast approaching Verstappen behind him. Not one to give up, Lewis pushed the car across the finish line, winning an unforgettable British Grand Prix.
The 70th Anniversary Grand Prix was the second event held at Silverstone and started again with a qualifying session that gave another Mercedes front row, this time led by Valtteri. However, the result wouldn't carry on to the end of the race on this occasion. Verstappen started P4 on the hard compound tyres and took P3 through turn one. He swiftly caught Lewis, taking P2, and then Valtteri who had maintained his first position through the race start. He couldn't hold off Verstappen though, and unfortunately lost P1. The standings remained the same for much of our race until the closing laps where Lewis passed Valtteri through Brooklands, taking P2.
Spain was our next host and gave us another strong performance in qualifying. Lewis took P1 with a 1:15.584, and behind him was Valtteri in P2. With an immense start, Lewis went on to give a masterclass, leading every lap during the race. Valtteri was unable to emulate the start and found himself in P4. He was able to reclaim P3 and finish on the podium but P2 remained out of reach.
