Silverstone requires a strong power unit and a chassis that responds well when running with a low downforce set-up. The Ferrari SF1000 has neither of these qualities.
The British Grand Prix venue is almost the complete opposite of the high-downforce Hungaroring, a track Ferrari enjoyed, and the next two weekends could spell trouble for the Scuderia.
McLaren, Renault and Racing Point have already proven they are on the same level, if not ahead of Ferrari in some areas this year. Just as Silverstone highlights the weaker areas of the SF1000, all signs point to the layout favouring those teams.
In qualifying, it would not be the biggest shock in the world to see Ferrari-powered teams Haas and Alfa Romeo occupying the back two rows of the grid, and with Charles Leclerc and Sebastian Vettel struggling to get out of Q2.
Renault protests versus Racing Point
GPFans understands Renault's protest against Racing Point is unlikely to be heard until next week as the relevant documents and materials are still being gathered.
Renault alleges its rivals breached the regulations by copying Mercedes' brake ducts, a listed part, rather than designing and manufacturing its own component.
The French manufacturer launched a protest after each of the last two grands prix in Styria and Hungary. It was reminded after the latter, however, that as its protest was the same as its first, it was irrelevant.
Hopefully, that means there will be no additional protest after Sunday's race, although the result will again be provisional pending the decision of the stewards.
Ahead of the first race time was made for the drivers to show unity in the fight against racism.
For personal reasons, some drivers elected to remain standing rather than taking a knee. While it appeared disjointed, at least by appearing they all made clear they were against racism.
At the last two grands prix, however, the protest has been fragmented, with cameras cutting away from the drivers trying to organise themselves, drawing criticism from Hamilton at F1 and the FIA.
For the British Grand Prix, time has been allocated in the pre-race schedule for the protest.
