British Grand Prix: Times, schedule, how to watch, weather and lap record

In the third of three consecutive race weeks, Formula One makes it's way to Silverstone for the British Grand Prix.

Three home heroes are all in with a chance of giving fans a British winner, as George Russell and Lando Norris have found themselves atop the podium in recent weeks, while seven time champion Lewis Hamilton has seen an upturn in form too. High tensions following last week's incident between Norris and Max Verstappen also add another compelling storyline to the weekend in Northamptonshire.

British Grand Prix most wins

Home hero Lewis Hamilton has won the British Grand Prix more times than anybody else, with eight at his home circuit. He is followed by fellow Briton Jim Clarke and Frenchman Alain Prost, who have both won five times in the UK.

Despite Hamilton's dominance at Silverstone, Ferrari remain the constructor with the most victories, having won 18 British Grands Prix, a tally that Hamilton will be looking to add to next season when he makes his move to the Tifosi.

British teams do have success on home soil however, as McLaren hold the second highest number of wins with 14, with a great potential to add to that figure this weekend.

Williams are the third most successful, with 10 wins, albeit none since 1997, and a miracle needed to pick up another this weekend.

In its current Grand Prix configuration, Silverstone has a lap length of 5.891km (3.661 mi), which tallies up to a race length of 306.198km (190.263 mi).
