SAY WHAT?! McLaren's 'rocket ship' and Stroll's brush with a stone – the best team radio from Silverstone


The British Grand Prix has delivered plenty of great races over the years and the 2023 edition was no different, with Max Verstappen delivering another sumptuous victory – Red Bull’s 11th win in a row. But there was no shortage of other storylines and incidents across the grid, with plenty of drivers taking note over the radio airwaves.

McLaren’s uptick in form – culminating in a P2 finish for Lando Norris and P4 for Oscar Piastri – was one of the biggest stories to emerge from the weekend at Silverstone and plenty of drivers took note. Lewis Hamilton dubbed McLaren’s updated car a ‘rocket ship’ on team radio, as he battled with Norris for that runner-up spot, while his Mercedes team mate George Russell couldn’t help but be impressed by the McLaren performance on hard tyres.

Even Haas’ Nico Hulkenberg took a moment to note the McLaren result as he asked for the top three to be read back to him by his team.

Pierre Gasly and Lance Stroll had their own coming together on the track, which played out as you’d expect over team radio, while Stroll’s Grand Prix weekend got off to an usual start after his finger was hit by a stone.

It was also a weekend to remember for Williams and Alex Albon, who received a very warm message from his team boss James Vowles after crossing the finish line in eighth.
