Formula 1 is back at Silverstone this weekend, as the famous track hosts the British Grand Prix.

A favourite of drivers and fans alike, the layout often produces fantastic racing action come Sunday and the unpredictable weather often throws the form book into the air.

Last year, Carlos Sainz won the race to take his first-ever victory in F1, having secured his maiden pole position the day before.

Red Bull are the heavy favourites to take the win this time around, having enjoyed a dominant start to the 2023 campaign.

Max Verstappen currently holds an 81-point lead over team-mate Sergio Perez in the Drivers’ Championship, having won the previous nine races.

After the sprint format was utilised last time out in Austria, the British GP will see a return to the traditional schedule.

Below, see all the session times for the weekend.
