2023 F1 British Grand Prix session timings and preview

Formula 1 travels to Silverstone this weekend for the 10th round of the season. Here's how you can watch the 2023 British Grand Prix.

Max Verstappen, Red Bull Racing RB18, Carlos Sainz, Ferrari F1-75, Lewis Hamilton, Mercedes W13, Charles Leclerc, Ferrari F1-75, Sergio Perez, Red Bull Racing RB18 and Esteban Ocon, Alpine A522 as behind George Russell, Mercedes W13 collides with Zhou Guanyu, Alfa Romeo C42

Red Bull may have been unbeaten in 2023, but the Austrian squad has yet to register a win at Silverstone since F1 switched to V6 turbo hybrid engines in 2014. Red Bull's last victory at the British GP came back in 2012, courtesy of Mark Webber, with all subsequent races won by either Mercedes or Ferrari.

That is not to say Red Bull is not the favourite for Silverstone, and all odds points toward another Max Verstappen triumph. However, one can expect Mercedes, Aston Martin and Ferrari - or at least one of these three teams - to be closer to Red Bull this time around.
