Formula 1 British Grand Prix 2024

How the British GP sparked Simpsons-esque Euro 2024 prediction

A particular feature about the British Grand Prix appears to have predicted the future!

Lewis Hamilton, Max Verstappen and Lando Norris. The three drivers who stood on the British Grand Prix podium last weekend. 

Two English drivers, one Dutch, can you see where this is going? F1 appears to have had its very own 'The Simpsons' moment, in seemingly predicting the score of the Euro 2024 semi-final between the Netherlands and England. 

American cartoon 'The Simpsons' has a spooky talent of predicting real-life events, something it has continued to do since the show first aired in December 1989. 

F1 has now done something very similar, as England defeated the Netherlands and secured a place in Sunday's final on Wednesday night. Aston Villa striker Ollie Watkins scored a 90th minute winner to seal a narrow 2-1 victory for England. 

With two English drivers and one Dutch having been on the podium at Silverstone. Can it be said that F1 predicted the future? 

Hamilton ended a 946-day winless streak to secure a ninth victory in the British GP. The Mercedes driver survived a late charge by Verstappen, who settled for second. Norris completed the podium. 

What do you think, did F1 predict the future?
