Chasing pack

It’s an important weekend for the drivers behind Shwartzman and Daruvala in the standings as the two have created a decent gap between themselves and others in the championship.

With only four rounds (eight races) remaining after Silverstone, it will be important for any wishing to challenge Shwartzman and Daruvala for the championship to start putting together consistent, high scoring, race weekends.
