Another nice day of weather is expected at Silverstone on Friday.

On the morning journey to the British Grand Prix venue early on Thursday, many members of F1's travelling circus reported low cloud and cold drizzle.

But once at the Northamptonshire circuit, the sun came out and the skies remained clear.

A similarly fine day has dawned early on Friday morning, ahead of the initial three hours of practice, and temperatures in the high 20s are also forecast for Saturday.

Lotus technical boss Mike Gascoyne said there is currently "a risk of rain" for Sunday, but detailed forecasts show the probability is small.
