What a time for the Formula 1 season to boil up once again. George Russell returns for his home race at Silverstone hot on the heels of a dramatic, terrific victory in Austria at the weekend.


The British Grand Prix is one of the highlights of the calendar and all three British drivers are likely to feature on or around the podium in 2024.

Russell stormed through to seize on a collision between race leader Max Verstappen and rising force Lando Norris. He won at the Red Bull Ring and stirred the pot even further as the campaign approaches the halfway point.

Ironically, despite Verstappen faltering down to fifth, he has extended his lead at the top as Norris ended up finishing dead last.

Mercedes were the big winners of the weekend thanks to Russell, while Lewis Hamilton finished just short of the podium and will be desperate to put on a show at Silverstone.
