2024 Formula 1 British Grand Prix Highlights


Williams Racing


Williams Racing have doubled their 2024 points tally after taking P9 in the 2024 Formula 1 British Grand Prix.

Alex Albon

We made contact in Turn 3 and more in Turn 4, also losing a chunk of the front wing, so I was a bit worried initially. After that, everything mostly fell into place, and I was happy. I knew the rain would come, and there would be a second chance, so I just had to stay patient and wait for the opportunities to arise. We made the right calls for the most part, boxing at the right time for the right tyres. We did lose some time on the pit stops, and I think without the damage, we could’ve scored more points. However, I’m still happy. It’s a weekend when we must deliver for the team, so doing it at our home Grand Prix always makes it more special.

Logan Sargeant

It was a good day in general. From FP2, where we struggled with high fuel, we put the car in a much better place, and it showed. We had a good pace, particularly on the slick tyre. I struggled a little on the drying track with the Inters by degrading the tyres too much. We executed everything relatively well and kept it together in tricky conditions. We got quite unfortunate with the stacked stop for the Inters, with Alex having a slow stop ahead, which cost us time. Of course, in hindsight, there were maybe a couple of decisions we could’ve done a lap or two earlier, which ultimately could’ve been the difference between a point or not. Overall, I’m happy with the way I drove this weekend.

Sven Smeets, Sporting Director:

The car worked well today in these mixed and rather cold conditions. Alex picked up some damage in the first corners of the race through contact but avoided a big collision with great skill. Logan had a good start, and both cars had good pace in that first part of the race. When the first patch of rain came, both drivers did an excellent job staying out on slicks, as it was difficult to call when to go onto the Intermediates. In hindsight, we should’ve boxed a lap earlier as the rain intensified quickly. When the rain had passed, we fitted slicks on both cars at the right time, and Logan and Alex were at a great pace on a quickly drying track. Logan overtook [Kevin] Magnussen for P11, and Alex made a great move on [Yuki] Tsunoda for P9, scoring two valuable points for the team. Overall, it’s been a good weekend for the team after two difficult weekends.
