2019 Formula 2 British Grand Prix Recap

The Formula 2 British Grand Prix race weekend saw Luca Ghiotto get himself back into the championship fight while there was big success for at least one of the British drivers at their home race.

At the top

It was a solid weekend for the current points leader, Nyck de Vries who managed to finish sixth in the first race before going on to claim third in the second race.

It was a decent weekend for Luca Ghiotto who got himself back into the title fight after claiming the feature race victory at Silverstone. Although he ultimately could not follow this up in the sprint race, finishing fifteenth, outside of the points.

After a couple of difficult rounds it was a strong event for Nicholas Latifi who managed to finish second in the feature race and followed this result up with a fifth place finish in the sprint race.

Guanyu Zhou also bounced back from a difficult Austrian Grand Prix, claiming a podium finish in the feature race and taking a point in the sprint race.

British Success

There were three Brits on the grid in Formula 2 who had varying levels of success.

Jordan King managed two top ten finishes across the two races, but this meant he only finished the weekend by claiming one point as only the top eight score points in the second race.

It was a more successful event for Callum Ilott who managed his second double points finish of 2019 having claimed eighth in the feature race and then finished fourth in the sprint race.

The most successful Brit was Jack Aitken who claimed fifth in the feature race and then went on to win the sprint race.

Elsewhere on the Formula 2 grid

Away from the very top of the standings and from the British drivers, it was a solid weekend for Nobuharu Matsushita who followed up his Austrian Grand Prix performance, where he claimed a feature race victory and then fifth place in the sprint race with another double points finish, claiming ninth in the first race and then seventh in the second race during the British Grand Prix.

It was also a strong event for Louis Deletraz who finished seventh in the first race of the weekend and then followed up with a second place finish in the final race of the Formula 2 event. This matches his exact performance at the Monaco Grand Prix.

Mick Schumacher followed up his Austrian Grand Prix performance, where he finished fourth in the sprint race, by finishing eleventh in the feature race at Silverstone before going on to finish sixth in the sprint race.

What next for Formula 2?

FIA Formula 2 will be back in action in early August when it supports Formula 1 at the Hungarian Grand Prix.
