British Grand Prix - Silverstone circuit

The F1 circus heads to the British Grand Prix at the Silverstone Circuit, which is the final race of the sport's first tripleheader. Max Verstappen joined the list of winners in Formula 2018 with a victory at the Austrian GP making him the 4th race winner this season.

Sebastian Vettel leads the World Championship standings by just one point over his title rival Lewis Hamilton going into the Briton's home race, where he is managed to win 5 times previously and will be looking to make it 6 this weekend, which will then make him the most successful driver at the British GP.

The 2017 British GP was won by Lewis Hamilton scoring a Grand Slam in the progress, that is taking pole, leading every lap of the race and also posting the fastest lap time. The Finn's Bottas and Raikkonen finished second and third respectively.

Mercedes has been the team to beat in the British GP in the recent years and will be looking to score a win after their double DNF in Austria. Ferrari will be looking to defend both the drivers' and constructors' standings as they lead in the latter for the first time this season.

British Grand Prix - 5 Best Moments at Silverstone to remember.

A third DRS zone has been placed on the track's start/finish straight as part of the FIA's attempt to improve overtaking opportunities in F1.

The location of the DRS zone is unique because, with the first Abbey right-hander followed by the Farm left-hander both being flat out on lower fuel loads, ideally most drivers will have the option of keeping their DRS open through the turns.
