How far behind will Ferrari be in the 2020 British GP?
In our Pits To Podium segment for the 2020 British GP, we wonder if Ferrari could be at the risk of being lapped in the two upcoming rounds at Silverstone. Ferrari haven’t hit bottom yet or have they?

In our Pits To Podium segment, we tell you why the battle for P2 in the Drivers’ and Constructors’ Championship could be where the entertainment is.

Not to mention the possible verdict of the Renault vs. Racing Point protest that is expected before or around the 2020 British GP. But what about Ferrari, how far back will they be on a circuit with fast-flowing corners? In fact, will the circuit characteristics give Mclaren an advantage over their midfield rivals? And of course, it will continue to be worse for all Ferrari-powered teams. All this and more in our ‘5 things to watch for’ series for the 2020 British GP. Tune in!
