Max Verstappen's win streak, Lando Norris' big finish, and more from F1 British Grand Prix

Red Bull Formula 1 driver Max Verstappen doesn't appear to be able to let off on the gas. Verstappen extended his winning streak on Sunday by winning the British Grand Prix. This was his sixth straight victory this year and his second triumph at Silverstone.

Lando Norris of McLaren and Lewis Hamilton of Mercedes came in second and third, placing two Brits on the podium at home event for the first time since 1999.

Verstappen's victory increases his drivers championship lead to 255 points while increasing Red Bull's constructors championship advantage to 411 points. When he takes the track at the Hungarian Grand Prix on July 23, the Dutch driver, who has won nine of the previous 11 Grands Prix, will have a chance to tie the record for the second-longest F1 victory streak.

Verstappen expressed his happiness over the fact that they had triumphed once more during the post-race broadcast. "I mean, the team's 11 straight victories, I think that's fairly amazing, but it wasn't easy tonight. On Thursday, I was kind of drifting with the marketing, and it seemed like I was doing that right away, which wasn't nice at all. I believe the past few beginnings were really much better, and today wasn't so terrific, so we'll look at that.

"But at least I had to work for it, so that made it a little more thrilling. Lando was extremely kind to me and didn't put up much of a fight, but he later returned in the DRS, showing that he had a lot of pace today and performed well.

Here is all the additional information you want on the British Grand Prix.

At the Formula One British Grand Prix on July 9, 2023, Dutch driver Max Verstappen of Red Bull Racing, British driver Lando Norris of McLaren, and American driver Lewis Hamilton of Mercedes celebrate on the podium.
For McLaren, Lando Norris and Oscar Piastri place second and fourth, respectively.
Lando Norris of McLaren had a terrible June. In the Spanish Grand Prix and the Canadian Grand Prix, he came in 17th and 13th, respectively.

After that, McLaren made improvements to the vehicle, which enabled the Belgian-British driver to achieve his best two race finishes of the year. Following up on his fourth-place performance in Austria the previous week, Norris finished in second position on Sunday, holding Lewis Hamilton at bay after a hard battle. After the race, Norris' name was being chanted by the crowd.

Norris remarked, "It's pretty amazing, pretty insane." "The battle with Lewis to hold him off was spectacular. Maybe I made a couple too many blunders, but I tried my best. I engaged Max in combat for as long as I could. When you're just in the middle, the race is long and lonely, but it's great.

Oscar Piastri, a rookie, placed fourth for the McLaren squad, who had a solid day overall. The enhanced McLaren, according to Hamilton, is a "rocketship."

First of all, I simply want to give the entire crew a heartfelt thank you, Norris stated. They did a fantastic job, and without their tireless efforts, none of this would have been possible.
