Formula One returns to the home of motor racing this weekend

This weekend sees the highlight of the British motor racing calendar as Formula One fans converge on Silverstone for the British Grand Prix.

The British Grand Prix is one of only two events alongside the Italian Grand Prix, to have featured in every single World Championship season, and this weekend will see the race return to Silverstone for the 53rd time.

This year’s race is the 10th of the current championship season and all eyes will be on Lewis Hamilton, who will be looking to extend his lead at the top of the driver championship.

Hamilton has been dominant in the race in recent years, winning four on the trot between 2014 and 2017 until the streak was broken last year by his main rival Sebastian Vettel.  He can cement his place in history with a victory that would make him the most successful driver in British Grand Prix history with six wins.

Racing gets underway on Thursday and Friday with the practice sessions, before the drivers battle it out for pole position in the qualifying session on Saturday. Then, of course, Sunday is the big one, race day.

As well as hours of exhilarating racing there will also be live music performances at the end of the day for those in attendance. Friday night features a set from Razorlight, Saturday evening sees Craig David take to the stage with his TS5 set and following the race on Sunday there will be a performance from Soul II Soul.

There are still a limited number of tickets available for the weekend and more information can be found at
