British Grand Prix LIVE! F1 race updates and latest news



F1 heads to Silverstone today for the tenth race of the 2022 season with Carlos Sainz on pole position in the Ferrari. Lewis Hamilton starts back in fifth after being left “gutted” by his inability to challenge for the front row of the grid in a chaotic qualifying session marked by constant bursts of rain.

Max Verstappen, who leads the F1 world championship comfortably going into the race, will start second ahead of Charles Leclerc and Sergio Perez. A Red Bull has won all but two of the nine races so far. There is plenty of British interest outside of Hamilton in the top ten with George Russell in eighth behind sixth-placed Lando Norris.

This race will be broadcast for free on Channel 4 as well as on Sky Sports with lights out at 3pm BST. Follow the British Grand Prix via Standard Sport’s live blog with all the latest news and updates, including expert analysis from Matt Majendie at the track…
