LIVE: First free practice at Silverstone!

Formula 1 is back at Silverstone for the second time in two weeks, for the 70th Anniversary Grand Prix! As the name suggests, it's been 70 years since the inaugural F1 race, right here at Silverstone. The first-ever F1 race was Alfa Romeo dominance, with all three drivers on the podium driving for the Italian team. The event was won by Giuseppe Farina, with Luigi Fagioli in second and home favourite Reg Parnell third.

But it's unlikely to be Alfa Romeo winning this weekend. It's far more probable that we'll see Mercedes dominance once again after Lewis Hamilton's ridiculous win last time out, crossing the line with a puncture.

Mercedes better than anyone

Mercedes have been on a different level to everybody else in 2020, with Max Verstappen looking like the only person who can challenge Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas this weekend.

We'll get a flavour of what's to come in this session, the first practice session of the weekend. We've got 90 minutes of running for you, so keep up with the liveblog below for everything you need!
