Infinity drivers buckle up for the British Grand Prix

This weekend welcomes one of the highlights on the motorsport calendar, the British Grand Prix. Always revered as a favourite for drivers and fans alike, this year is no exception as we gear up to support our squad of Infinity Drivers, who take to the track in front of a sell-out crowd...

The Home Grand Prix

After cutting his teeth through the junior formulae, George Russell is no stranger to the thrilling sequence of twists and turns that Silverstone offers. Having taking four wins at the circuit in GP3, FIA Formula 3 and BRDC Formula 4 respectively, only last year, he finished on the podium twice in his championship winning FIA Formula 2 season. 

With a wealth of experience behind him, this weekend culminates his strong racing career, as it sees George compete in his first home Grand Prix. Whilst his first season has been tough at times, George has definitely put in some strong performances and is working well with the team. 

Director of Infinity Sports Management, Harry Soden, looks ahead:

“George will be experiencing his first race in F1 on home soil this weekend, so it should be a great occasion for him and his family and all of us at Infinity will be cheering him on.”

FIA Formula 3 reaches halfway point

After an action-packed double header in France and Austria, the FIA F3 squad are back in action this weekend as part of the support package for the British GP. Max, Logan and David all tackle the 3.661 mile circuit, looking for a strong showing against the 30-car grid. 

It’s been a rollercoaster season so far for our trio, who have fought their way through, with some exciting on-track battles and impressive results to boot. 

Last time out saw Max inches away from claiming pole position at the Red Bull Ring, where with impressive pace from the off, he continued his run to lead the race by the first corner. In a race long battle, against rivals and the DRS effect, he managed to cross the line in 2nd place, claiming his first podium in the FIA Formula 3 Championship. 

Whilst Austria proved to be a tale of two halves for our trio, with talent and experience on their side, we’re sure they’ll be in the right position to push for strong results. 

Director of Infinity Sports Management, Gary Catt, comments:

“It's an important weekend in the FIA F3 championship, as the championship will be at it’s halfway point when we leave the circuit on Sunday. Max is coming to his home race this weekend, on the back of a good weekend at Red Bull Ring, where he secured a podium and came away scoring some good points.

David Beckmann has had some terrible luck over the last couple of race weekends, so he’ll be keen to bounce back from those with a good one at Silverstone. 
Logan also endured a difficult weekend in Red Bull Ring after a crash in qualifying put him on the back foot for the rest of the weekend. He usually goes well at Silverstone, so we are hoping for a good performance from him this weekend as well.”

Away from Silverstone…

It’s the busiest weekend of the year for our Infinity squad. Away from the thrills of Silverstone, we also have Nicolai and Linus (Euroformula Open) and Olli (Formula Regional) taking to the Austrian hills at Red Bull Ring, whilst Ricky Collard contests in Blancpain GT at Zandvoort. 

With a jam-packed menu of racing action, we’re buckling up for what’s sure to be a strong weekend for our talented drivers, both home and away.
