Formula 1 racing at the British Grand Prix

Fri 14 JulSun 16 Jul 2017

The British Grand Prix at Silverstone takes place this year on 14-16 July, as part of the Formula 1 season.

Silverstone is the tenth race in the Formula 1 season, with the teams having already raced in Australia, China, Bahrain, Russia, Spain, Monaco, Canada, Azerbaijan and Austria.

Silverstone has been regarded as the 'Home of British Motor Racing' since hosting its first Grand Prix in 1948.

Both British drivers will be hoping to give the home fans something to cheer about at Silverstone by claiming a podium position.

What conditions will the drivers face at the British Grand Prix?

"Friday will be fine and dry for practice with light winds and afternoon temperatures reaching 19°C. Qualifying on Saturday will be more cloudy, with a little drizzle possible. Temperatures will rise from 16°C around mid morning to 24°C by mid afternoon.

"On Sunday drivers can expect a humid, mostly dry day with some sunshine. Temperatures will rise from 18°C mid morning to 25°C by mid afternoon."

Clare Nasir, Met Office Meteorologist.
