The British Grand Prix is upon us and it’s set to be another exhilarating weekend of action at Silverstone, with a sold-out crowd set to attend one of the biggest sporting events on the calendar in the UK.

Lewis Hamilton, George Russell and Lando Norris will all be racing in front of their home crowd this weekend, and for seven of the 10 teams, it will be their home race – with the majority of the Formula 1 grid having their factories based in Britain.

There are plenty of ways to keep up with the action from around the world, and from the UK itself, it will be live on free-to-air television as Channel 4 holds the live rights to broadcast the British Grand Prix alongside Sky Sports F1 for this weekend.
