Good morning and welcome back to the live coverage of the Great Britain GP 2020, the fourth race of the F1 world championship. We will see a very particular race (52 laps) during which the strategies can make a difference.

Mercedes seem to be the favourite for the win, yesterday both Hamilton and Bottas dominated the qualifying session and showed to have a significant advantage on the other teams. Lewis Hamilton gained another pole-position, for a total of 91 pole-position in his career and seven here at Silverstone.

Ferrari still struggling with the car. The team has well accepted the P4 Charles Leclerc gained in the qualifying session. Yet, for Sebastian Vettel, P10, the weekend, so far, has been decided by the many issues his car presented.

After the qualifying session yesterday, FIA announced a five-place grid penalty to George Russell (Williams) for failing to respect speed limits after yellow flags were shown on the track.

The race will start at 15.10. 52 laps to decide who will win the fourth round of F1 2020.  Will Hamilton break one more record? Will Verstappen challenge Mercedes for the victory? Stay tuned on OA Sport, enjoy the race!
