The British Grand Prix is a key dish in the feast of summer sport, and it's all ready to be served up at Silverstone with a cluster of homegrown heroes to celebrate.

Mercedes have made improvements in recent weeks, Lewis Hamilton picked up a podium finish last time out and George Russell has been consistently strong all season.

They will be determined to put on a show for the home crowd in the grandstands, but Max Verstappen may demand all the attention if he continues his streak of form.

The reigning champion has won five of his last six races and Red Bull have supplemented his wins with terrific performances from Sergio Perez throughout 2022.

They are the duo to beat at Silverstone, while Ferrari have struggled for consistency and continue to slide away from the title race pace.

RadioTimes.com brings you the complete guide to the British Grand Prix 2022 including start time, dates and TV details, as well as our analysis of the big storylines to come.

British Grand Prix preview

1. Max Verstappen to build an unassailable lead

Verstappen heads into the weekend with a 46-point lead. He could afford a crash, smash and DNF but another victory would see him launch into a lead of more than 50 points.

For a driver who has won six of his nine races in 2022, a driver who has finished on the podium every time he has finished a race in 2022, a 50-point gap would look untouchable.

2. A Brit on the podium?

Lando Norris continues to struggle in the underwhelming McLaren this term. He finished 15th in Canada and will be desperate for a return to form here.

He doesn't appear to be in contention for the podium, but seeing Lewis Hamilton and/or George Russell up there on Sunday appears highly likely given Mercedes' return to the top table of Formula 1. Russell has finished between third and fifth in all nine races so far this term.

3. Dysfunctional Ferrari

Ferrari were seen as bona fide title contenders, in both the driver and constructor championships, but how the landscape has shifted.

It has still been a deeply impressive season from Ferrari so far in the context of recent years, but a number of mechanical issues, grid penalties and bungled strategy calls have left them trailing in the wake of Red Bull.
