Sergio Perez won't take part for Racing Point after testing positive for Covid-19. His seat is taken by former Force India driver Nico Hulkenberg, which is basically the same team as he was ousted by when Lance Stroll took his seat. Will this change be the ultimate moment for him to score his first ever podium in F1?

Lewis Hamilton heads into his home Grand Prix looking for a third straight win this season. The forecast is was dry and scorching hot today for the first two practice sessions.

Both Alfa Romeo drivers had a hard time keeping their C39 on the black stuff. First Kimi Raikkonen spun into the gravel at Luffield, but was able to return to the track by himself. A few moments later we saw his teammate Antonio Giovinazzi losing control coming out of Chapel corner. His spun totally flat spotted his tyres. He also was able to continue, but drove to quickly back to the pits. The massive vibrations caused a lot of damage to the car and debris on the tarmac, which took 10 minutes to remove under a red flag situation.

Sebastian Vettel did not set a lap time with the SF1000. On the installation lap the Ferrari team detected there was something wrong with the intercooler system on Seb’s car. So they had to strip the car down and fix the problem, to be ready for FP2.

The fastest FP1 lap of last year was a 1:27.173 min, clocked with the Red Bull RB15 on softs with Pierre Gasly behind the wheel.
