Cars line up on F1 starting grid for practice starts.

The F1 starting grid for the 2023 British Grand Prix is in after a thrilling qualifying session at the iconic Silverstone race track.

It’s a case of the usual suspect on pole position, but certainly a case of the unusual suspects starting from P2 and P3.

Max Verstappen on pole as Sergio Perez’s woes continue

Max Verstappen will be joined by Lando Norris on the front row of the British Grand Prix. Norris’ team-mate Oscar Piastri will start P3 as McLaren’s upgrades look to have given the team an incredible boost up the order.

The Ferrari duo of Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz follow next, then come Mercedes pair George Russell and Lewis Hamilton. Alex Albon, Fernando Alonso and Pierre Gasly complete the top 10.

On the sixth row will be Nico Hulkenberg (P11) and Lance Stroll (P12), whilst the seventh row sees Esteban Ocon (P13) and Logan Sargeant (P14).

For the fifth race in a row, Sergio Perez faces a tough recovery mission after yet another dismal qualifying sees him start from a very lowly P15 position.

The penultimate row will see Yuki Tsunoda and Zhou Guanyu looking to make immediate progress up the field after below-par qualifying sessions.

The back row is set to see Kevin Magnussen, who was forced to come to a stop in the closing stages of Q1, start alongside Valtteri Bottas who was disqualified from qualifying having failed to provide the necessary one-litre fuel sample for the stewards to test.
