Red Bull have been the powerhouse of Formula 1 this season, but we could see other drivers and teams snatch a few wins away from them before it ends.

As good as Red Bull have been, the dominance of Max Verstappen may not hold at all 15 races remaining on the 2023 Formula 1 schedule.

There are still a few tracks remaining on the 22-race calendar where we could see a race winner who is not driving the RB19.

Here are three possibilities.

Formula 1 races Red Bull might not win: No. 1 – British Grand Prix

Silverstone Circuit has not exactly been the bread and butter for Red Bull as of late. Aside from Verstappen’s lap one retirement in 2021, this was shown last year with some additional struggles, plus an untimely run-in with a piece of debris.

Sergio Perez still had a good showing with a P2 finish. However, things are different this year. Verstappen’s dominance has put him on a pedestal of his own. As for Perez, his current form has been relatively poor, given the car he drives.

Mercedes seem like the next likeliest team to snatch a win away from Red Bull if Verstappen is again unable to win at Silverstone. With Lewis Hamilton having always done well racing at home, with eight total wins under his belt, there is no reason he cannot win for a ninth time — and first with the new and improved W14.

Although beating Verstappen may not be on the minds of those at Mercedes right now, any sort of error in his race could be all it takes for Hamilton to grab his ninth British Grand Prix win — or for George Russell to get his second career win — and first at home.
