02 Aug

Our coverage will begin on Friday for FP1 and FP2, and will continue all the way through to the race on Sunday. We would've struggled to get pumped for it about 20 minutes ago, but after that climax, we can't wait. Thanks for joining us today, and see you on Friday.

02 Aug

Yes that's right, we're back here this time next week to do it all again. Judging by today, expect strategies to be a bit more varied.

02 Aug

Red Bull may be kicking themselves about bringing Verstappen in to go for fastest lap. If he stayed out, he would have won. Still, there's always next week...

02 Aug

Well, it wouldn't be an exaggeration to say the final lap of that race was more entertaining than the previous 51. Thanks very much to Pirelli for that.

02 Aug

The final order: P1 Hamilton, P2 Verstappen, P3 Leclerc, P4 Ricciardo, P5 Norris, P6 Ocon, P7 Gasly, P8 Albon, P9 Stroll, P10 Vettel, P11 Bottas, P12 Russell, P13 Sainz, P14 Giovinazzi, P15 Latifi, P16 Grosjean. RET: Raikkonen, Kvyat, Magnussen, Hulkenberg.

02 Aug

Vettel had a fight on his hands in the final lap as Bottas attacked him on fresh tyres. However, the German held on to take a single point.

02 Aug

Gasly ended up in P7 and is surely a contender for Driver of the Day. Albon made an excellent recovery behind him to finish in P8, while Stroll won't be happy with P9.

02 Aug

Given what happened to his team-mate, Norris will happilty take P5. He finished with the other Renault on Ocon right behind him.

02 Aug

Leclerc takes his second podium of the season, while Ricciardo managed to pass Norris to finish an excellent P4.

02 Aug

Verstappen went purple on his final lap but couldn't quite catch the Brit and finishes in P2.

02 Aug

He just about makes it to win the British Grand Prix!

02 Aug

Verstappen is catching, but it's the final lap...

02 Aug

Hamilton's tyres are gone!

02 Aug

A puncture for Sainz!

02 Aug

Albon meanwhile has passed Vettel and Stroll. He's P9.

02 Aug

Bottas comes in and comes out all the way down in P12. Leclerc is set to take a podium.

02 Aug

Verstappen then pits to go for fastest lap.

02 Aug

The tyre failed just past the pits, meaning he has to do a full lap.

02 Aug

The Finn has a puncture! Verstappen takes P2.

02 Aug

Bottas is hugely struggling now, with Verstappen closing in by around two seconds per lap.

02 Aug

Gasly takes P9 from Stroll! His excellent start to the year continues.

02 Aug

Norris is being held up by Sainz and now has Ricciardo all over the back of him. Four laps left.

02 Aug

Ocon passes Stroll round the outside to take P8. With Ricciardo ahead of him, it's been a good race for Renault.

02 Aug

P12 now. Vettel and Gasly stand between the Red Bull and a point.

02 Aug

Albon takes P13 from Russell.

02 Aug

Stroll headed into this weekend hoping for a podium but has struggled today and is fighting to hold off Ocon in P8. Racing Point are missing Perez.

02 Aug

Bottas is starting to struggle with his tyres and his dropping back considerably. Go get him Max. Please. We need something to get excited about.

02 Aug

Maybe the move of the day from Gasly as he passes Vettel to take P10.

02 Aug

Albon passes Kimi with DRS to take P15.

02 Aug

Hamilton is two seconds ahead of Bottas and cruising now. Fun fun fun.

02 Aug

In response, the Haas has pitted for fresh hards. It was a poor stop though, and he comes out in P17.

02 Aug

Ricciardo has finally passed Grosjean, and Stroll quickly follows the Aussie through.

02 Aug

A five-second penalty for Giovinazzi for a Safety Car infringement.

02 Aug

Verstappen has just told his engineer to keep hydrated, in case you needed a reminder of how lonely he is in P3.

02 Aug

Latifi takes P15 from Raikkonen. Thanks to a certain ad, we know you take your time Kimi, but come on.

02 Aug

He won't be. Instead, he's come in to serve his penalty and put on fresh mediums.

02 Aug

Gasly passes Giovinazzi to take P12. Albon will be hoping to follow suit ASAP.

02 Aug

A train is forming behind Grosjean as Ricciardo is struggling to get past.

02 Aug

Stroll and Ocon getting their elbows out as they fight over P9. Behind them, Vettel doesn't have the pace to get involved.

02 Aug

We're at the halfway point of the race now.

02 Aug

Five seconds between Bottas and Verstappen now. It's plain sailing for Mercedes once again.

02 Aug

Norris passes Grosjean at Stowe.

02 Aug

Grosjean's long run means that Vettel is currently running outside the points in P11.

02 Aug

Sainz, aided by DRS, gets him a lap later.

02 Aug

Sainz tries to get Grosjean but the Haas holds him off. He's going well at the moment.

02 Aug

Albon has been handed a five-second penalty for the incident with Magnussen.

02 Aug

Bottas managing to stay within a second of Hamilton at the front.

02 Aug

The battle allowed Grosjean to hold onto P5, but expect Sainz to get him now.

02 Aug

Norris passes Ricciardo at the restart and then tries to get Sainz! He goes wide but managed to stay ahead of the Aussie.

02 Aug

But we're about to get some more - SC coming in.

02 Aug

Six laps of green flag racing so far. Thrilling stuff.

02 Aug

Hamilton compalining that the Safety Car is too slow. Probably still quicker than this year's Ferrari, mind.

02 Aug

This Safety Car was something of a saviour for all those on softs. They're now no longer at a disadvantage in terms of tyres.

02 Aug

By staying out, Grosjean got himself up to P5. Expect him to drop rather quickly at the restart...

02 Aug

So, everyone bar Grosjean has now pitted for fresh tyres. Hards for each of them. One stop races aplenty.

02 Aug

The top three had passed the pit-entry before the SC came out, but everyone else bar Albon, Leclerc and Grosjean came in immediately. The Mercedes', Verstappen and Leclerc have now done so themselves.

02 Aug

Another Safety Car! Kvyat has gone off and had a heavy impacy, with both wheels coming off. In response, a huge number of drivers are pitting.

02 Aug

Bottas is starting to close the gap on Hamilton. It's 1.1 seconds now. Go on Valtteri, give us a battle.

02 Aug

Vettel is struggling on the softs and has Gasly all over the back of him.

02 Aug

Hamilton is 1.7 seconds clear of Bottas.

02 Aug

The front three are already pulling away. Verstappen is doing his best to stay with Mercedes and is three seconds clear of Leclerc.

02 Aug

Ocon tries to pass Stroll at the inside of Stowe but doesn't quite manage it. That would have been quite the move.

02 Aug

Albon's pitting for a new set of hards.

02 Aug

No movement at the restart as everyone gets away cleanly.

02 Aug

SC coming in...

02 Aug

Stroll dropped down to P8 at the start while Vettel is still in P10. Albon's car seems okay and he's in P12.

02 Aug

It was an ambitious move by the Red Bull to say the least, and he may be invesitahted for it. Magnussen meanwhile is out of the car and okay.

02 Aug

Safety Car! Albon tries to pass Magnussen on the inside of the final corner and hits the Dane's wheel, sending him into the barriers and out of the race.

02 Aug

Sainz and Ricciardo make excellent starts to go up to P5 and P6 respectively.

02 Aug

And we're off! Bottas makes the better start and has the inside line but Hamilton just about holds the lead! Behind them Leclerc passes Verstappen but the Dutchman quickly takes P3 back!

02 Aug

The formation lap is underway. Here we go...

02 Aug

As expected, the McLarens, Renaults and Vettel are the only ones to start on the soft tyre. Mediums for everyone else.

02 Aug

Five minutes.

02 Aug

Racing Point haven't been able to fix Hulkenberg's car and he won't start the race. Such a shame for him and all those excited to see him. Hopefully this wasn't his last chance to drive in F1.

02 Aug

40% chance of rain today, say the FIA. After eagerly waiting for it last time in Budapest to no avail, we're not getting our hopes up.

02 Aug

A much more organised and effective anti-racism message from the sport this weekend. A video featuring all the drivers, and time set aside for those who choose to kneel to do so. All are now gathered for the national anthem.

02 Aug

Those issues are yet to be fixed and he may not start the race at all. An apt return to the sport for one of Formula 1's unluckiest drivers ever.

02 Aug

Hulkenberg's chances of a podium were already slim, but they're now pretty much gone. Racing Point has just confirmed that he'll be starting from the pit-lane. There were some issues with his car and they couldn't get him to the grid in time.

02 Aug

We've had a bit of everything so far this weekend in terms of weather. FP1 and FP2 took place in 30'C heat and yesterday wind caused havoc for various drivers. Things are cooler again today, but being Silverstone, the gusts are still lurking round every corner...

02 Aug

If you've been living under a rock for the last few days, you may be confused to see the Hulk there. Well, when Sergio Perez tested postive for coronavirus on Thursday, he was called up by Racing Point and, considering he's had zero preperation and no prior experience in the car, he's looked pretty good. It's unlikely, but what a story it would be if he *finally* got his first podium today.

02 Aug

The full starting grid, with penalties for George Russell (not slowing for yellow flags) and Daniil Kvyat (gearbox change) applied, is: P1 Hamilton, P2 Bottas, P3 Verstappen, P4 Leclerc, P5 Norris, P6 Stroll, P7 Sainz, P8 Ricciardo, P9 Ocon, P10 Vettel, P11 Gasly, P12 Albon, P13 Hulkenberg, P14 Magnussen, P15 Giovinazzi, P16 Raikkonen, P17 Grosjean, P18 Latifi, P19 Kvyat, P20 Russell.

02 Aug

To make matters worse for the German, he didn't have enough pace to make it into Q3 on the medium tyre and will therefore start on the softs. Most feel that running mediums from the off is a vastly superior strategy, and the top four and Stroll will definitely be doing so as, presumably, will most outside the top 10.

02 Aug

The Renaults start in P8 and P9, led by Daniel Ricciardo. Just behind them is Sebastian Vettel, who has been struggling with his car all weekend,

02 Aug

It was yet another strong Saturday for Lando Norris as he out-qualified team-mate Carlos Sainz at his home-track. The McLaren pair start P5 and P7, with Lance Stroll seperating them.

02 Aug

Max Verstappen was the closest man to the German team, but even he was a whopping seven tenths off Bottas. He starts P3 alongside Charles Leclerc who seemingly out-performed his car to make it to the second row.

02 Aug

As expected, the Mercedes drivers were in a league of their own. Lewis Hamilton was the quicker of the two, taking pole position by three tenths. Valtteri Bottas starts P2.

02 Aug

Before we turn our attention to today, let's run through everything that happened in qualifying yesterday.

02 Aug

01 Aug

Russell meanwhile is under investigation for not slowing under yellow flags when his team-mate span. Q2 will begin in around 10 minutes.

01 Aug

Q1 is done. Magnussen, Giovinazzi, Raikkonen, Grosjean and Latifi all out.

01 Aug

Latifi went off and couldn't do another lap.

01 Aug

Hulkenberg takes P5 and Russell P11.

01 Aug

Both Haas boys can't get out of the drop zone.

01 Aug

Raikkonen can't improve and is out. Giovinazzi also out.

01 Aug

Cars heading out for their final runs...

01 Aug

Five minutes to go. Magnussen, Raikkonen, Giovinazzi, Latifi and Grosjean in the drop zone.

01 Aug

The Brit goes up to P10 on his first clean lap.

01 Aug

Norris now the only man yet to set a time after going off on his flying lap.

01 Aug

Verstappen and Albon go P2 and P6 respectively.

01 Aug

Bottas does a 1:26.0 and Hamilton goes three tenths slower. Vettel's first lap puts him P8.

01 Aug

Leclerc and Stroll do 1:26.5s to go P1 and P2.

01 Aug

Hulkenberg goes a tenth slower than the Russian and Gasly a tenth quicker.

01 Aug

Kvyat goes top with a 1:26.819.

01 Aug

Both do a 1:27.9, while both Haas boys do a 1:27.8.

01 Aug

Alfa Romeo drivers are the first out.

01 Aug

Q1 is underway.

01 Aug

You'll be pleased to here that there's a 60% chance of rain for the upcoming session. Fingers crossed...

01 Aug

In terms of grid penalties, Daniil Kvyat is the only unlucky man this weekend. The Russian took a new gearbox for this weekend and will therefore start five places back. Pierre Gasly also has a new one, but he avoids a penalty as he didn't finish the last race.

01 Aug

While Mercedes will surely lock out the front row, Red Bull may well have to fight off Racing Point to secure the second. Stroll was P4 this morning, while Hulkenberg ended up in P9, two tenths down. Considering he's had next to no preparation, he's looking good.

01 Aug

FP3 earlier today saw normality restored as Mercedes returned to the top of the time sheets courtesy of Valtteri Bottas. Lewis Hamilton was in P2, a tenth off, while Max Verstappen will be encouraged that he was just three tenths off himself.

01 Aug

Those out are Gasly, Albon, Hulkenberg, Kvyat and Russell.

01 Aug

Gasly sets the same time as Stroll put is out as he set his time after the Canadian.

01 Aug

Albon can't improve and will start P12.

01 Aug

Hulkenberg puts on softs and improves to go P10 before Ricciardo goes P7 and drops him back down.

01 Aug

Everyone heading out for their final laps.

01 Aug

Hulkenberg currently in P11, with Russell, Ricciardo, Gasly and Kvyat also in the drop zone.

01 Aug

Hamilton goes three tenths slower than his team-mate. It'll be enough to get him into Q3 though.

01 Aug

Bottas just over a second clear of Verstappen in P2 at the moment. Show off.

01 Aug

Things are about to resume, and he's put on new mediums.

01 Aug

This is quite the dilemma for Hamilton. He can risk running the mediums once things are back underway, but one more imperfect lap and he's out. On the softs, he'd be under less pressure, but would have to start on them tomorrow.

01 Aug

Leclerc and Vettel went P3 and P7 before the session was suspended. They're split by Ocon and the McLarens.

01 Aug

Red Flag! The session has been stopped so stewards can clear the gravel.

01 Aug

Bottas does a 1:25.0 to go top, while Hamilton spins on his first lap, putting gravel on track.

01 Aug

Verstappen goes four tenths quicker than his team-mate.

01 Aug

A 1:26.580 for Albon, and Hulk goes less than a tenth slower.

01 Aug

Vettel and the McLarens on softs, but the rest of the Q3 favourites are on mediums.

01 Aug

Both he and Hulkenberg are on the medium tyre. Considering it's the best tyre to start on, they won't be the only ones trying to get into Q3 on them.

01 Aug

Green lights for Q2, with Albon the first out.

Tomorrow's race will start at the usual time of 14:10. We'll begin our coverage here an hour beforehand, and take you through everything you need to know. So, tomorrow, 1PM. See you there.

01 Aug

As they presumably cruise off into the distance, the fight behind them will hopefully be more interesting. Verstappen and Leclerc start side by side on the second row, while their team-mates and the Racing Point of Hulkenberg will on the charge further back.

01 Aug

For the sake of entertainment, it would be nice if the Mercedes drivers ended up with penalties. They're more dominant than ever, with no other cars able to get any closer than a second really. Sadly, no investigations for them.

01 Aug

There could still be further changes however, with various drivers under investigation for various incidents throughout qualifying.

01 Aug

That's that. This is tomorrow's starting grid: P1 Hamilton, P2 Bottas, P3 Verstappen, P4 Leclerc, P5 Norris, P6 Stroll, P7 Sainz, P8 Ricciardo, P9 Ocon, P10 Vettel, P11 Gasly, P12 Albon, P13 Hulkenberg, P14 Russell, P15 Magnussen, P16 Giovinazzi, P17 Raikkonen, P18 Grosjean, P19 Kvyat, P20 Latifi.

01 Aug

Vettel has his last lap time deleted and will start P10. A tough day for him.

01 Aug

Verstappen does enough to take P3 back from Leclerc.

01 Aug

Hamilton improves, Bottas doesn't! Yet another pole position for the Brit.

01 Aug

Leclerc moves up to P3, just P9 for Vettel.

01 Aug

Norris goes above the Canadian.

01 Aug

Stroll can't improve.

01 Aug

Here come the final laps...

01 Aug

After the first runs, no other car is within a second of Mercedes. A full second. My word.

01 Aug

Verstappen and Stroll go P3 and P4, with Leclerc and Vettel filling the row behind.

01 Aug

Bottas goes a tenth slower than his team-mate. First blood Hamilton.

01 Aug

A 1:24.616 for Hamilton.

01 Aug

Sainz goes a tenth slower.

01 Aug

First lap is set by Norris. A 1:26.456.

01 Aug

Here we go then, Q3 is underway. 10 minutes for everyone to put their best foot forward...

01 Aug

Qualifying will get underway at 14:00, and we'll be here to begin the build-up half an hour beforehand. With clouds looming, it could be a good one... See you there.

01 Aug

As expected, Mercedes return to the top of the time sheets, with Bottas in particular looking strong. Behind them, Red Bull and Racing Point are set to battle it out for the second row.

01 Aug

The final order: P1 Bottas, P2 Hamilton, P3 Verstappen, P4 Stroll, P5 Sainz, P6 Leclerc, P7 Norris, P8 Ricciardo, P9 Hulkenberg, P10 Gasly, P11 Kvyat, P12 Ocon, P13 Albon, P14 Vettel, P15 Grosjean, P16 Russell, P17 Giovinazzi, P18 Magnussen, P19 Raikkonen, P20 Latifi

01 Aug

That's that for FP3.

01 Aug

The latter locked up on the lap before so wouldn't have had perfect tyres.

01 Aug

Stroll and Hulk both improve to go P4 and P9 respectively.

01 Aug

Verstappen splits the Mercedes drivers to take P2.

01 Aug

Much like yesterday, Vettel has something loose in the brake pedal area.

01 Aug

Bottas meanwhile has gone half a second clear of Hamilton at the top.

01 Aug

Albon is out of the pits! He'll be glad to have some time to do a few laps before qualifying.

01 Aug

Sainz now moves into the top four himself, a tenth up on the Monegasque.

01 Aug

Not for long as Leclerc takes it from him. Finally, some encouraging signs for the Italian team.

01 Aug

P4 for Norris.

01 Aug

The German has just gone P5, nine tenths down on Hamilton. That's more like it.

01 Aug

With under half an hour left, Vettel is down in P18, ahead only of Latifi and Albon, who hasn't done a lap. What sort of car has Ferrari given him?

01 Aug

Hamilton takes P1 back with a 1:26.332.

01 Aug

Stroll goes half a tenth quicker than his new team-mate to take P4.

01 Aug

Bottas goes top with a 1:26.526. Nothing between him and Hamilton at the moment.

01 Aug

Verstappen goes P3 with a 1:27.335, just a tenth ahead of Hulkenberg who has improved.

01 Aug

P3 for Gasly.

01 Aug

Hamilton improves, doing a 1:26.568.

01 Aug

Stroll meanwhile goes two tenths quicker to take P6. Both on softs.

01 Aug

Hulkenberg goes P9 on his first lap.

01 Aug

It's a busy track now, with most drivers out on softs or mediums.

01 Aug

Hamilton meanwhile surpasses them both with a 1:26.825.

01 Aug

On the same tyres, Leclerc goes half a second slower.

01 Aug

Bottas does a 1:27.136 on softs.

01 Aug

Red Bull has confirmed that it's an electrical issue.

01 Aug

Just as Albon was about to leave the pits, the team told him to get out and immediately started to dismantle the car and work on it. Something wrong there.

01 Aug

A 1:28.539 from Sainz puts him top.

01 Aug

He then improves with a 1:28.879. Raikkonen goes three tenths slower on softs.

01 Aug

Vettel does the first time of the day, a 1:29.562 on the medium tyre.

01 Aug

The Haas and AlphaTauri drivers join him to do installation laps and come straight back in.

01 Aug

We're off, and Lando Norris is the first man out.

01 Aug

Five minutes until FP3 is underway.

01 Aug

While Stroll topped the second session, Max Verstappen was P1 in the first. Things weren't so good for his team-mate Albon however who had a heavy collision, losing the rear at Stowe and slamming into the barriers. Thankfully, he was okay, and the team look to have repaired his car for today.

01 Aug

Like Mercedes, Nico Hulkenberg too will be pleased about the cooler conditions. It was a baptism of fire for the German yesterday as he returned with next to no preparation on one of the toughest tracks in blazing heat. Even so, he got within half a second of his team-mate Stroll in FP1, and was seven tenths off in FP2, which the Canadian topped. Expect him to get closer today.

01 Aug

If there's a chink in the Mercedes in the armour, it may well be how the car fares in hot conditions. James Allison stated his concerns about it, and the fact that they failed to top a session yesterday suggested they may be founded. Still, with temperatures back down to 19'C, we'll have to wait a little longer to found out.

01 Aug

Yesterday was a scorching day in the UK, with temperatures soaring above 30'C. Today, things are more what you'd expect from British weather, which should have a huge effect on how things play out on track.

01 Aug

Good morning and welcome to a chilly and blustery Silverstone circuit for Saturday's final practice for the British Grand Prix weekend.
