Outcomes of the System 1 Grand Prix of System 1: Lewis Hamilton units an F1 document with a flat tire

Can Lewis Hamilton be stopped?

This could be the easiest question to answer after the British Grand Prix at Silverstone on Sunday after Hamilton took another first place at the British GP. Hamilton clinched his seventh career win at Silverstone, extending his own record. He had a puncture in the last lap of the race. Fortunately for Hamilton, he was 30 seconds ahead of second-placed Max Verstappen.

Interestingly, Hamilton wasn’t the only Mercedes driver with tire problems. Team colleague Valtteri Bottas had a blowout in the last laps of the race and Verstappen was able to overtake him. It also opened the door for Charles Leclerc to stand on the podium after holding on to the fourth race.

Hamilton has now dominated the last three races, with victories at the Styrian and Hungarian GPs in July. Silverstone turned out to be similar. Hamilton has dominated the track behind the wheel for Mercedes and has clinched British GP victories in five of the past six years.

So again: can Hamilton be stopped on the way to another F1 championship? If a flat tire can’t stop it, what can it do?
