Gareth Southgate wins British Grand Prix
Gareth Southgate won the British Grand Prix after a stellar drive at Silverstone today.
The English sporting hero started on pole position and never looked back, finishing a record-breaking four laps ahead of the rest of the field.
Fellow Brit Lewis Hamilton was runner-up, but German driver Sebastian Vettel was unfortunately forced to retire early.
The win was a remarkable won for Southgate, who has also made it through to the fourth round of the Wimbledon men’s singles championship.
Later today he leads England in their decisive T20 cricket match against India.
The news comes just hours after Sir Gareth of Southgate masterminded England’s progress to a World Cup semi-final for the first time in 28 years.
Sporting expert Lorraine Fisher, 34, said: “It turns out Gareth Southgate can do absolutely anything, whether that’s turning around England’s footballing fortunes, or winning a Formula One race.
“It seems the man can do no wrong.”
The enormous crowds at Silverstone cheered Southgate every step of the way after he powered his Mercedes, unfortunately a German vehicle, around the track.
“It’s coming home,” said motor racing fan Steve Walshe, from Woodbridge in Suffolk.
