GOOD LAP vs GREAT LAP: Ride onboard with Daniel Ricciardo to see how to nail a lap of Silverstone

Share

There's a reason why drivers love Silverstone, with its flowing corners and high-speed straights. But how do you get a lap of the British GP venue nigh-on perfect?

In the video above we ride along with Daniel Ricciardo, with two side-by-side laps to compare: his good Q2 lap – slower than then Renault team mate Esteban Ocon's – and his great Q3 lap – good enough for P8 on the grid – from last year's British GP.

Commentator and racer Alex Brundle compares the two laps with his expert eye to find out how the Australian extracted the maximum out of his car. Watch the video in the player above, before the drivers return to the circuit for this weekend's British Grand Prix.
