Hamilton & Bottas set the pace as Grosjean suffers weird Silverstone crash

Valtteri Bottas beat teammate Lewis Hamilton by just 0.069s as Ferrari was within 0.2s during second practice at the British Grand Prix.

And taking place at the same time near the British capital will be the men's final at Wimbledon. "People will be switching between channels on Sunday not knowing what to watch".

With gusts blowing across Silverstone, several drivers found the conditions challenging, but the championship-leading Silver Arrows laid down a marker.

Channel 4 will also show live coverage of the England-New Zealand clash, having struck a deal with Sky Sports, although the cricket will move to More 4 when the British Grand Prix coverage gets under way. "I come here to raise the flag and do the country proud". There is excitement and adrenaline going and there are pressures.

This weekend's race was potentially the last one at Silverstone after the BRDC, which owns the track, activated the break clause in its contract two years ago, saying the cost of hosting the Grand Prix had become too much.

Today $ 10 million was stolen from the BitPoint cryptocurrency exchange
Experts looking into the matter have come out to say the crypto exchange suffered the attack at around 10:39 pm on Thursday. Bitpoint suspended all transactions, including trading, deposits and withdrawals of all crypto assets, on Friday morning.


"We struggled quite a lot with the front tires during the race runs, a bit less on the quali (fying) runs", Leclerc said, "but I still think that there is quite a little bit of pace to find from on our side".

Speaking in more detail about the contract, Silverstone managing director Stuart Pringle said the circuit had been given the appropriate assurances that, if a second race in the United Kingdom is added to the F1 calendar, it won't have a negative impact on the existing one. What is certain is that Hamilton Will have more chances to win at Silverstone in the future.

After two years of intense negotiation, Silverstone signed a new deal with Formula One on Tuesday that will see it stay on the calendar until 2024. He finished fifth. "We're here to improve this weekend as a team", Hamilton said. "Who knows if I will still be here then?" said the 34-year-old Hamilton, who is under contractat Mercedes until 2020.

"The prospect of not hosting a Grand Prix at Silverstone would have been devastating for everyone in the sport and I am delighted that we are here today making this positive announcement about the future". The meeting has traditionally taken place in June to take advantage of the summer weather but could be shifted in consideration with the other races that occupy the summer months.
