In the craziest race since the apocalyptic Abu Dhabi Grand Prix that decided the last World Championship in favor of Max Verstappen, Carlos Sainz made history by debuting his Formula One winning streak and becoming the first Spaniard to take him on the sidelines of Fernando Alonso reached. Author of the last 32 wins, the last in 2013 (Montmeló). The Ferrari driver’s triumph at Silverstone was the perfect metaphor for his sporting career; an exercise in endurance and consistency, two of its greatest attributes alongside speed, always essential in this discipline. This victory also breaks the six straight win streak that Red Bull has accumulated and restores some of the spice to the championship that it had lost in recent dates.
Whatever the stats, this test will feed the recap of the best moments of the season with several of its sequences. An appointment at one of the most historic circuits of the calendar, a very relevant scenario in the life of Sainz, who got into an F1 car for the first time (Toro Rosso) in 2013, two years before his debut in competition. From then on, his progress has been without fanfare but very solvent, enough for Renault to notice him (2017), for McLaren to trust him for his rebirth (2019) and for Ferrari, the most universal symbol of auto racing, he will set you sure.
150 Grands Prix have elapsed before Sainz was able to open the champagne from the top step of the podium, a fact that makes him the second driver to have completed the most events to date, only behind the 190 that Checo Pérez had to wait for.
