In Austria, Anthoine Hubert had endured a nightmare round; zero points scored meant he had lost the lead in the Drivers’ Standings. He arrived in Silverstone a week later with the goal to reclaim top spot and prove that what had happened at the Red Bull Ring was just a fluke. P17 in Free Practice, the Frenchman worked hard with his team before Qualifying to fix the issue. It paid off immediately with a maiden pole position for Hubert which he converted into a second win this season – but one won on the track this time!
The next day, he moved up from eighth on the reverse grid to fourth at the flag. With a total of 37 points – the most scored by a driver last weekend – Hubert retook the lead in the Drivers’ Standings, 6 points clear off title rival and teammate Callum Ilott.
