    Akkefietje with Stroll costs Verstappen top time in third practice Silverstone
    Max Verstappen finishes seventh during the third free practice for the anniversary Grand Prix. The Dutchman could have been higher on the times list had he not been hindered by Lance Stroll on his fastest lap. Verstappen is the fastest of everyone in the first sector when he has to get off his throttle a sector later to avoid Stroll's Racing Point. The eightfold can only improve to a limited extent after that. Lewis Hamilton is the fastest, ahead of Valtteri Bottas and McLaren driver Lando Norris. Qualification is scheduled for 3 p.m.
