Formula 1 returns to Silverstone for the 2019 British Grand Prix, with the future of the event uncertain beyond this year.

This year’s race is currently scheduled to be the last race to be held at the home of British motorsport, unless a new deal can be struck. Negotiations between Silverstone and F1 are ongoing and both are hopeful of finding a resolution to ensure the British Grand Prix remains on the calendar in 2020.

Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton heads to his home race looking to make yet more history. Victory on Sunday would hand the Briton a record-breaking sixth British Grand Prix win, having won every race since 2014 barring last year.

The 2019 British Grand Prix takes place on Sunday July 14. Cars will hit the track for the first time during FP1 and FP2 on Friday, before final practice and qualifying takes place on Saturday.
