What is the weather forecast for the F1 British Grand Prix?

Silverstone track detail

Formula 1 will return to Silverstone this weekend for the iconic British Grand Prix. The race marks the end of a triple-header, which has seen races in Spain and Austria in the last couple of weeks.

The circuit, which is located in Northamptonshire, has hosted the event consecutively since 1987 but has intermittently hosted the race since 1948. Several teams have bases close to Silverstone, with Aston Martin just over the road, Mercedes in Brackley and Red Bull in Milton Keynes.

This weekend is expected to be a thrilling race with three British drivers all hoping to take the win on their home track.

Lando Norris – who claimed his maiden win in Miami this year – will be looking to continue his ongoing battle with Max Verstappen, after the pair clashed at last weekend’s Austrian GP.

Verstappen and Norris both suffered tyre punctures after coming together on lap 64, resulting in George Russell claiming his second Formula 1 grand prix victory.

Lewis Hamilton has claimed the most home grand prix wins of any driver, with eight victories and a further five podium finishes during his 17-year grand prix career. Hamilton joined Norris and Verstappen on the podium last season but will be hoping to claim his F1 first win at any venue in two and a half years.

The British contingent will be joined next year by Oliver Bearman after Haas announced his signing ahead of this weekend’s British GP. The Prema Formula 2 driver impressed many in Jeddah when he was called to replace an unwell Carlos Sainz at Ferrari for the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix.

Ferrari boss Fred Vasseur described the race as a “mega weekend” for Bearman, with Charles Leclerc adding, “it’s a matter of time before we see him permanently in F1” after the Brit finished seventh and ahead of both Norris and Hamilton.

It is hoped the typical British weather will not put a damper on this weekend’s event, after a wet week for most of the UK. Here’s everything you need to know about the weather for the F1 British GP.
