Formula 1 heads to Silverstone next for the British Grand Prix on 14 July after back-to-back races in France and Austria.

Max Verstappen’s win for Red Bull in their home GP in Austria on 30 June ended Mercedes’s eight-race winning run.

Despite missing out on his seventh win of the season Mercedes ace Lewis Hamilton still leads the F1 drivers’ championship by 31 points from team-mate Valtteri Bottas. 

Verstappen has climbed to third in the championship after his victory at the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg. Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc are fourth and fifth respectively. 

In the constructors’ championship Mercedes are top with 363 points while second-placed Ferrari have 228 and Red Bull have 169 in third.
