Dancers must learn to adapt to the music on the floor. If the rock sound has a way of moving, it is different from a bachata sound. It is important to adapt to the circumstances, to the context in order for the dance to work well or poorly.
Carlos Sainz proved that he can dance in the rain. He took the first Spanish pole position for ten years. It was something that would happen sooner or later and it was a crucial moment. He was at his most questionable, in a Silverstone that made it uncomfortable and wet, almost a cliché of British meteorology. The man from Madrid managed to achieve a time that is well worth his pole position. The Spaniard became the 104th Poleman in Formula 1's 150th Grand Prix.
Everything was marked by the rain. It is impossible to deny that Sainz would have suffered more without her, especially considering the pace Max Verstappen had set from the beginning. Intelligence was the best weapon on a track that was improving by the minute. It could make the difference between making it through each round and having a great time or ending up in a disaster. Knowing when to go on the track and when to push can help you know when to go. One of the winners was a surprise Nicholas Latifi. He was going to be pushed off the track by Oscar Piastri and was about to leave Silverstone. But he signed his best Saturday in a while, passing Q3 for the first-time.
After a Q2 session in which no one was able to improve half-way through due to the rain, the final session saw something very similar. Verstappen was strong and had two failed attempts (a complete spin, an off track), but he still managed to set a third and a temporary best time. As the track became dryer, it improved. However, rain was warned. It was crucial to make the right lap at just the right moment. Sainz was there. He would later reveal that despite having issues with the battery, he was able to improve the initial time to become the current world champion. This allowed him to climb to the top of time tables. He wouldn't let go.
"How did it happen?" When he crossed the finish line, he asked himself "How did I do it?" It was already a joy with this Pole in difficult conditions, but I have always enjoyed it and done well in it. Silverstone in the rain is the best place to get the first pole," said Sainz, who was satisfied and, in this manner, vindicates him.
It will be a difficult task that he will have to finish on Sunday. He will have to resist potential attacks by Verstappen or Leclerc, and he will also need to show his chest in order to hold onto a podium. This Sunday is the best day to win your first ever race.
It was a difficult Saturday for Fernando Alonso to manage. They discovered that Esteban Ocon's car, as well as his car, had cracks in their new pontoons. This was largely due to the 'porpoising and the resulting vibrations. The Mercedes saw almost no rattling, and Alpine experienced a net increase of performance.
It was wonderful to see the rain during qualifying. Alonso was able to pass the first two cuts with no major problems. He also passed Q3 without any difficulty. He was caught in the worst time by the rain, and times started to fall. Alonso wanted more, and he returned to the wall to see the wall.
I have felt comfortable and good in the rain since the beginning. Q1 was completed with one set of tires. Q2 was also a breeze. Q3 was a better experience. I feel like I have a bittersweet taste. We crossed the finish line first. It was a mistake in that sense, and it has surprised us, but it is what is. He conceded that a fourth or fifth place could have been possible but that the race situation wouldn't have changed much. Music that is always the same regardless of how it's danced sounds like music.
