British GP: Race start time, qualifying, sprint and how to watch F1

Max Verstappen would love to spoil the homecoming and looks prepared to do so, but will the new F1 sprint race throw a spanner in the works?

Hamilton struck back in his bid for a record-breaking eighth world championship by putting his Mercedes at the front of the grid for the maiden Sprint race.

Hamilton’s triumph was greeted with a huge roar by the 86,000-strong crowd in Northamptonshire as he edged out championship rival Verstappen by 0.075 seconds. Hamilton’s team-mate Valtteri Bottas qualified third ahead of Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc.
