After the excitement of the British Grand Prix 2017, another fantastic race is in store First practice gets underway at 9 am on 5th July.
British Grand Prix Qualifying follows on Saturday getting underway late morning with the race taking place at 1 pm on Sunday 8th July.
Lewis Hamilton won the British Grand Prix 2016 and will be looking for success again in front of the home crowd. 139,000 fans flocked to the venue last year. A similar crowd is expected to snap up British Grand Prix 2018 tickets this time.
The British Grand Prix 2018 is the 11th race of the season & Silverstone’s 53 laps could prove pivotal. The winner’s podium has been home to a number of familiar names with plenty of Silverstone formula one experience between them.
British Grand Prix Tickets are selling fast but are still available at tickets.formula1.com. There are VIP options available or tickets for the main grandstand.It’s possible to purchase tickets for each individual day or a pass which will allow access for practice, qualifying and the race itself. Silverstone hospitality packages are extremely popular too.
One of the few British formula 1 champions in the field. He has made a positive start to the season clinching the opening race of the season in Australia. He followed it up with success in Bahrain and Monaco.
The Ferrari man hasn’t won a championship since 2013 but appears determined to get back to winning ways here. Vettel has only ever won the British Grand Prix once before, back in 2009 so it’s fair to say that Silverstone this isn’t one of his favourite formula 1 tracks. He would relish the chance to beat his main rival in his own back yard and put some distance between the pair.
Hamilton could go level with both Jim Clark and Alain Prost as a 6-time winner of the British Grand Prix if finding success in this race. There is always plenty of incentive for the Stevenage-born driver to succeed here.
The Mercedes driver has won his last three races here and will be feeling confident ahead of this renewal. The British Formula 1 driver wrapped up the Spanish & Chinese Grand Prix this season and is once again vying for the title. There have been some disappointing moments in this campaign including the 7th place finish in Monaco but he is always likely to dominate in these familiar surroundings.
He is still only 20 years old & one of the younger British grand prix drivers on show here. There is no doubt he has a bright future ahead of him in the sport. He will be aiming to make a mark in the 2018 British Grand Prix.
He came 2nd in last year’s British Formula One event behind Lewis Hamilton. He has ground to make up on the leaders in the 2018 Championship standings & this is the ideal opportunity to close the gap. The Red Bull driver wasn’t happy about being beaten by team-mate Daniel Riccardo in Monaco but it proved to be a tactical decision. Replicating his success in the British Grand Prix 2016 is a big ask!
Daniel Riccardo has plenty of experience of racing here having won the 2009 British Formula 3 Championship. Although Australian, he has spent many years competing in the British Isles. Since that success, he was hired by Red Bull as a replacement for Mark Webber. He is looking to add his name to the list of British Grand Prix winners here. Riccardo’s 1st Formula 1 race was in the 2011 British Grand Prix so this represents a special moment in his career. He hasn’t found too much success in 2018 at the time of writing and significant improvement is needed here if he is to grab a podium finish in the British Grand Prix 2018
Plenty of drivers will fancy their chances in the race and it’ll prove a thrilling spectacle once again. Make sure you’ve purchased your tickets for the British Grand Prix 2018 to follow all of the drama at Silverstone on the 8th of July.
