Tips & Tricks
Prepare for crashes and changeable weather at the British Grand Prix; these upsets can present opportunities for a tactical Team Principal.
- With many opportunities for overtakes, there is a high chance of crashes at Silverstone, and you will likely see the safety car or even a red flag.
- The British weather can change swiftly, so you may need to swap to intermediate tyres. Take advantage of the safety car to make that change.
- Aggressive driving can let your drivers climb through the pack, but beware of the circuit’s high tyre abrasion, which will see the rubber wear out more quickly.
