Maybe we're biased, but the British Grand Prix is one of the ultimate highlights on the Formula 1 calendar in any given year.


Regardless of how many uber-modern street circuits are developed across the globe to host F1 races, few circuits will ever match Silverstone as a drama-generating behemoth.

The circuit has been dominated by Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes over the last decade, with the British star racking up seven victories at the track since 2014.

Remarkably, given his dominance in 2023, Max Verstappen is yet to taste victory in the British Grand Prix – though he did win the 70th Anniversary Grand Prix at Silverstone in 2020 – while Carlos Sainz was the benefactor of a chaotic affair in 2022 to claim top spot on the podium.

Red Bull star Verstappen is primed and ready to roll ahead of the trip to Silverstone this weekend with four consecutive wins under his belt, and fans across the nation can tune in to watch the race on free-to-air or paid TV.

More like this brings you a full round-up of how to watch the British Grand Prix 2023 on TV and live stream.
