F1 British Grand Prix live updates, race result as Formula One heads for Silverstone

For the third consecutive weekend, we have a Formula One race to enjoy.

After the excitement of last weekend’s Austrian Grand Prix, we can expect another 52 laps of high-speed action and intense drama. Defending champion Max Verstappen was on course for another victory last time out before an incident knocked him out of contention for his home race win.

Verstappen and current runner-up in the standings Lando Norris collided on the penultimate corner of the Red Bull Ring. The crash eliminated Norris from the race and dropped Verstappen to fifth place, allowing Mercedes’ George Russell to secure his first victory of the season in unexpected circumstances.

Russell now finds himself on pole where he’s looking to make it consecutive wins for the Mercedes outfit, with Hamilton right behind him.

The Sporting News is following the F1 British Grand Prix live, providing score updates, commentary and highlights as they happen.
