Vettel and Mick have to tremble!

The Silverstone rain is not her terrain yet.

4:07 p.m .:

The rain eases off a little, Verstappen and Leclerc snatch the top time from each other.

What happens at the top is not that interesting in Q1 - from a German point of view much more whether Vettel and Schumacher make it into the second round.

Both usually do well in the rain.

4:05 p.m .:

The drivers take it easy at first.

Just don't end up in the gravel bed and set a time first so that you don't have to be eliminated in Q1.

This is especially true for the top riders who don't let their foot on the gas too hard.

4 p.m.: Qualifying is on!

The English rain set in just in time for the start.

The cars are going out on intermediates, but soon the rain tires will be needed.

Update from July 2, 3:25 p.m .:

World champion Max Verstappen flexed his muscles in the third free practice session.

The Dutchman was clearly the fastest, followed by his teammate Sergio Perez in second place.

Red Bull is the favorite going into qualifying, which begins at 4 p.m.

Formula 1 at Silverstone: Mercedes hopes

First Announcement July 2nd:

Silverstone - In the stands, fans cheered, waving their Union Jack flags, and their hero, Lewis Hamilton, did not disappoint.

With a strong performance in free practice for his home round at Silverstone, the Mercedes star raised hopes of a coup in Sunday's race.

World champion Max Verstappen in the Red Bull and Ferrari star Charles Leclerc had trouble with the traditional track before the British Grand Prix (Sunday, 4 p.m. / RTL and Sky).

Formula 1 at Silverstone: Verstappen with problems, Hamilton strong

Hamilton surprisingly set the second fastest lap on Friday in 1:29.105 minutes, his Mercedes team had made numerous updates to his car especially for the home race.

Nevertheless, Hamilton, who has already won eight times at Silverstone, complained again on the radio about bouncing on the fast straights.

And yet: only Carlos Sainz in the second Ferrari was better in practice, covering the 5.891 km in 1:28.942 minutes.

After the first free practice session was spoiled by the notorious English weather, the sun shone over Silverstone in the afternoon.

On a dry track, ex-world champion Sebastian Vettel (Heppenheim/+1.393) in the Aston Martin in twelfth place and Haas driver Mick Schumacher (+1.667) in 19th place had no chance of a front place.

Verstappen, who confidently leads the World Championship with 46 points, apparently did not feel really comfortable in his car and finished fourth, a good two tenths of a second behind.

Behind him came Leclerc, who despite all the setbacks doesn't want to give up the title: "I still believe in it as much as I did five races ago.

It will be more difficult, but anything is possible.”

Formula 1: World Championship is far from decided - Verstappen and Leclerc stack deep

Verstappen is also (still) stacked low after six wins from the previous nine races.

"There's not really a reason to celebrate because I'd rather be where I'm at now, even at the end of the season," said the Dutchman: "So there's still a lot to do and we can improve, that's what we're concentrating on." us.” Even if things didn't go so well in training, Verstappen is again the favorite for the win with the bookmakers.

But Hamilton goes into his home race with great motivation.

The grandstands at Silverstone were already packed on Friday, and a total of 400,000 spectators are expected to watch the Formula 1 classic at the weekend.

And most will roar Hamilton forward.

Mercedes Motorsport Director Toto Wolff believes Hamilton may be able to capitalize on that advantage.

"If we give him a car that is only a few tenths behind the leaders, he will win the race," said the Austrian.
