Formula 1 is back in the UK today, with free practice starting at Silverstone around lunchtime.
Reigning champion Max Verstappen is the clear favourite for the race on Sunday, and will be looking to take a sixth consecutive win after triumphing last weekend in Austria – but he'll be being hunted down by an ever-closing pack.
Lewis Hamilton will be chief among those pursuers, having won an incredible eight times at Silverstone, with his home crowd likely to be cheering him on the whole way.
His Mercedes team-mate George Russell will also be getting the benefit of the British support, while it's a home race for Fernando Alonso's Aston Martin team too.
