What is the best pit strategy for the British GP?

The 10th race of the 2021 Formula 1 season, the British GP in Silverstone, will have a broader strategic spectrum than any of its predecessors. The reason: Saturday’s sprint qualifying race and the format change associated with it.

Thus, the pilots will have complete freedom of choice for this Sunday, but we will analyze thanks to Pirelli which options are the best and when will it be necessary to pit stop.

The best strategies for the F1 British GP: when to stop and which tires to use?

On this occasion, in the 10th round of the 2021 season, the strategies will be more open than ever, given that due to the format with the sprint qualifying race in Silverstone, the top 10 drivers are not required to use the tires with which they went from Q2 to Q3, as is usual.

So, this is what the Formula 1 tire manufacturer expects, Pirelli, according to his data collected throughout the complicated and different British weekend.

The best strategy for the British GP is to go to a stop. According to Pirelli, those who start with the medium (yellow) will be able to extend their first and only stop until lap 18-25 depending on the degradation and with the hard tire (white) they will be able to reach the end of the race. The second best strategy It is also one stop, but starting with the soft (red) and extending the first relay until lap 14-18. From there, the drivers should ride hard all the way in a relay of over 34 laps. Another option, but slower according to Pirelli It is going to two stops, coming out with the soft to try to gain positions in the first meters and stopping at 10-15 to mount the middle. After a relay of about 20 laps, it would be necessary to stop again to mount another set of means and reach the end.

Although the chances of rain at Silverstone at race time are almost non-existent, should the liquid element decide to spring into action, strategies could vary drastically. Similarly, the appearance of one or more Safety Car it would condition the teams’ plans.

With which tires does each rider go to the 2021 British GP?

On this occasion, due to the Formula 1 format test at Silverstone, which included a sprint qualifying race on Saturday, the top 10 drivers on the grid They are not obliged to use the tire with which they passed from Q2 to Q3 on Friday.

Thus, both the top 10, as well as the other 10 contenders (unlike in a normal racing weekend) have complete freedom to choose starting compound at the 2021 British GP.

Therefore, we will not know, until the formation lap starts, which tires each rider will wear this Sunday.

What compounds do the drivers have left for the British GP race?

Interestingly, of the top 10 on the starting grid for Sunday’s race, only Fernando Alonso, who completed a real display on Saturday afternoon in the first lap of the sprint qualifying race and will start 7th, has a new compound of soft.

It is striking that Sebastian Vettel, who will start 8th, no longer has a new set of any of the compounds, while the rest of the top 10 has a new set of hard and one or two of mediums …
