This morning - partly due to a short rain shower - it was a chaotic first training session at the Silverstone circuit. Will we get a repeat of this later? The second session starts at 3 p.m.

We had a little bit of everything in FP1 at Silverstone 🔄💥☔️ #BritishGP 🇬🇧 # F1

Of course you will not receive points for a free training, but Pierre Gasly will gain the necessary confidence from this session. The Frenchman is the fastest in a Formula 1 session for the first time in his career.

GP Great Britain · 2 hours ago

FINISH - Gasly is the fastest time when the flag falls! The Frenchman is almost half a second faster than Bottas, who finishes second. Max Verstappen concludes the first free practice as third.

GP Great Britain · 2 hours ago

Another 3 min - Gasly refers to Verstappen to P3. The Frenchman is approaching Bottas' time to eight hundredths.

GP Great Britain · 3 hours ago

7 more minutes - Verstappen climbs to second place. The Dutchman is approaching Bottas to three tenths.

GP Great Britain · 3 hours ago

Another 13 minutes - The track has dried up and that gives drivers the chance to finish lungruns. Times are no longer improved.

GP Great Britain · 3 hours ago

18 more minutes - Bottas and Hamilton dare to start driving again. It is now dry again at Silverstone.

    Haas reports that the rain shower will only be short-lived. In that case the drivers can start driving again quickly.

    There's rain out on track but we think it might be a quick shower. Kevin joins Romain back in the pits for now. # HaasF1 #BritishGP # FP1

    24 minutes left - Only Carlos Sainz dares to make miles. The Spaniard is in seventh place in his McLaren.

    GP Great Britain · 3 hours ago

    26 more minutes - The drivers send their cars into the pits. There is a chance that they will no longer ride in this session. Dry weather is predicted for the remainder of this weekend, so it doesn't make much sense to take risks in these circumstances.

    Rain ... on Friday. So that Sunday is completely dry again. # F1

    Another 30 minutes - Verstappen shoots off the track for a moment, but can continue his way without damage.

    GP Great Britain · 3 hours ago

    32 minutes left - Striking: Hamilton and Bottas have recorded their fastest times on the medium band. Verstappen and most other drivers clocked their time on the fastest soft band. So it can be a lot faster for Mercedes, although Bottas and Hamilton are already one second ahead of the competition.

    GP Great Britain · 3 hours ago

    Another 33 minutes - Hamilton and Sainz are warned of rain. "It may be that it starts drizzling in a number of turns."

    GP Great Britain · 3 hours ago

    Even more in the shadow of Hamilton than usual, but keep an eye on Bottas this weekend. Thrives well in the shelter. # F1

    He was already spinned in the pit lane and now Grosjean is also going around on the normal asphalt. A worthless start to the weekend for the Haas driver.

    Because new asphalt has been laid on Silverstone, it remains to be seen how the tires will stick this weekend. Mercedes has brought a set more medium tires than Ferrari and Red Bull, which indicates that the 'Silver arrows' take into account a two-stop strategy.

    GP Great Britain · 4 hours ago

    The circuit in Silverstone was re-paved again prior to this year's Grand Prix. Last year, new asphalt was also laid on the circuit, but then many drivers still complained that the track was very bumpy.

    With the car of Romain Grosjean, Haas went back to the concept of the car in the first race in Melbourne. All updates that the team has made since then have been removed from the car. The updates did not work and many of the changes that were made were wrong. By going back to the Melbourne setting, the team hopes to be able to start again.

    Gasly never rode with winning 'engine speed 11' Verstappen
    Pierre Gasly says that he has never ridden in the engine position with which Max Verstappen won the victory two weeks ago in the final stage of the Austrian Grand Prix. The 21-year-old Dutchman was told during the race over the on-board radio that he could use 'engine position 11' on his Honda power source until the end of the Grand Prix "for a little more power". "I have never used position 11 in the race," says Gasly. "Why not? I'd rather not talk about that."

    Vettel: "Ferrari is fast on straight and therefore slow in turns"
    It is now completely clear to Sebastian Vettel why Ferrari must tolerate Mercedes and sometimes Red Bull Racing this season. The car of the Italian racing stable has too little downward force and therefore falls short in turns. "We are very quickly on the straight, because we have little air resistance," explains the four-time world champion at the Silverstone circuit. "But that is a consequence of our lack of downward force. That is why we lose too much time in turns."
