When 21 cars lined up on the grid at a converted Second World War airfield in 1950 it marked the start of a championship that would grow exponentially, create heroes, and build a fanbase of millions. Now, after 1,022 races at 71 circuits in 32 countries featuring 765 different drivers Formula One is back where it all began for the 70th Anniversary Grand Prix.
Silverstone will host the second of back-to-back races in Britain, after last weekend’s British Grand Prix at the same venue, for the fifth round of the 2020 campaign. In order to commemorate the seven decades of the Formula One World Championship, which began at Silverstone on May 13 1950, the event will be titled the 70th Anniversary Grand Prix. It is the first time a Formula One event has not been named after a country, province or city.
Join us for the latest updates and results from the Silverstone Circuit, as the second practice session for the 70th Anniversary Grand Prix is about to get underway, with Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc at the wheel of the SF1000, ready to continue evaluating the ideal set-up ahead of the qualifying session and the race on Sunday.
