The British Grand Prix has gone from a fast sweeping engine centric race on the Silverstone track to a compromise of fast sweepers and tight corners on the same Silverstone track thanks to the many changes over the years. This year we've seen tracks where the cars are more than a second faster, only slightly faster, all the way to slower than last years times. What will Silverstone hold for us? Also, keep an eye on the weather as it has frequently impacted this race over the years.

Still wonder why you thought i would win this. Again being at the bottom of the list. Pity i did not set once a time early this year. Lack of interest i think.

I was thinking that Ian or John would take it. But Lewis screwed up his lap. He could have been in the upper 1:24s if he didn't slide through that series of corners (Abbey?) on his first run.

Well done Monte!

Nah, no rain.... none that I saw following on live timing. Just the usual rain is in the area, it might.... but it didn't
The track seemed to get slower after the first Q3 runs cos no one went faster other than Lewis, but that was more because he had a little moment on his first run.

Track temp shot up in the last session when the sun came out, that's why the times were slower than we expected awhile watching.
