Streak snapped: J.B. Wendelken’s scoreless streak, which began last season, ended Friday at 17 ⅔ innings — but it was an unearned run, thanks to the runner-at-second-base rule instituted for 2020. The right-hander, who is an increasingly important part of Oakland’s bullpen, hasn’t allowed an earned run in 18 ⅔ innings.
While Verstappen didn’t feel the benefits of the harder, more durable rubber early on, he did pass Hulkenberg immediately and it was evidently clear that the Mercedes weren’t pulling away from the Red Bull as they had the week before. Even worse for Mercedes, Bottas received this radio message on lap six – which was […]

George Russell again put tail-enders Williams into the second phase while Alfa Romeo, who won the very first world championship race at Silverstone in 1950, will line up with their cars at the back of the grid.
Hamilton did not immediately clear the Ferrari – doing so to the inside of Stowe despite a late and firm move from Leclerc to cover the attack on lap 45 – but when he did he homed in on Bottas, with both Mercedes drivers told they were “free to race”.
