2024 Formula 1 British Grand Prix Highlights


Visa Cash App F1 Team


The Visa Cash App RB duo Yuki Tsunoda and Daniel Ricciardo finished 10th and 13th at the 2024 Formula 1 British Grand Prix.

Daniel Ricciardo

It was a mixed-conditions race, which was exciting, ultimately grabbing some opportunities, but unfortunately, we were not competitive. It was one of those days where we struggled more than we should have, so we’ll try to get into it and figure out why. In the last three weekends, I think we have lost a bit on the latest upgrades battle compared to some of our competitors in the midfield, so we’ve got some work to do looking at the next races. Having a week off to reset and return to Budapest is good now, a completely different circuit.

Yuki Tsunoda

It was a good but tough race. Based on our pace in Free Practice, we knew it would be difficult to score points in dry conditions, so I think the wet conditions helped us keep the gap between the cars in front small. Normally, I didn’t appreciate the rain at previous races, but it helped us today. It’s one point, and we take it. Now, we look ahead and move forward, and I’m excited about using what we’ve learnt over the last couple of weekends for the coming races before the break. Hungary has a mix of high and low speed, so hopefully, we can use our strengths and fight in the top ten.

Laurent Mekies – Team Principal

This weekend has been a great advert for Formula One and has demonstrated that while the sport is enjoying fantastic growth in new markets, classic venues like Silverstone still have so much to offer. The huge crowd enjoyed it and should be congratulated on not letting the bad weather dampen their enthusiasm. From our side, it’s clear that the fast nature of this circuit has not suited our car particularly well, and we are not where we want to be, dominating the midfield as we did earlier in the season. However, we are coming home from this triple header with another well-deserved point for Yuki and the team, executing strongly in difficult changing conditions. Daniel was trailing the same tight mid-field group and finished outside the point despite putting up a good fight. This race is only the midpoint of the season, the 12th of 24 rounds, and we have seen how quickly the hierarchy can change from race to race, from the front of the grid to the back. It is more than ever a development race, and everyone in Faenza and Bicester is flat-out looking for a much-needed further step of performance for our car.
