The F1 British Grand Prix live stream will give you the chance to watch a race weekend like no other — because for the first time ever, F1 is introducing a new two-part qualifying format.
Central to that is the new Sprint qualifying format: a 100km race, equating to roughly 17 laps of the Silverstone circuit, without mandatory pit stops. The top three will all score championship points and the finishing order will be used to determine the final grid for Sunday’s race proper.
The starting order for the Sprint race was determined by qualifying yesterday, and Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton thrilled a crowd of 86,000 at Silverstone by taking pole ahead of his championship rival Max Verstappen of Red Bull and his teammate Valtteri Bottas in third.
Lando Norris of McLaren kept up his excellent recent form by taking sixth, while Williams’ George Russell managed a superb eighth.
Hamilton will be desperate to win in front of his home fans, and paid tribute to those who had turned out to support him yesterday. “We have been missing this for a whole year, I have lost my voice a little. I am so grateful to see everyone here. To come to Silverstone and have a full crowd like this. You feel the energy.
“I was hopeful with the great work we did at the team and the energy of the fans would get us here. This is down to the fans.”
Silverstone is one of Hamilton’s favorite circuits — in fact, he’s the most successful driver in British GP history, with seven wins, and has taken top spot in five of the past six races.
Then again, he hasn’t won since way back in May, during which time Verstappen has opened up a commanding 32-point lead in the Drivers’ championship.
Today, we’ll have the second and final practice session followed by the Sprint qualifying race — and you can watch it all online via an F1 British Grand Prix live stream. Read on to find out how to do just that.
