This weekend sees one of the standout races in the Formula One season as we arrive at Silverstone for the historic British Grand Prix. With wet weather forecast and a number of the leading drivers knowing this circuit as their home track, it promises to be an eventful race.

Despite finishing fifth in last weekend’s Austrian Grand Prix, Max Verstappen once again goes into this race as favourite, with sportsbook CopyBet pricing him up at 1/2 for what would be a fourth victory in his last six races. Verstappen won the British Grand Prix last year so knows what it takes to triumph at Silverstone.

Lando Norris, George Russell and Lewis Hamilton are three of the drivers looking to celebrate a victory on home soil and each of them can draw confidence ahead of the race. Norris appears to many to be Verstappen’s closest challenger and the McLaren driver has finished second to the Dutchman twice in recent weeks. Norris is 5/2 to take the big trophy this weekend and narrow the 81 point gap between himself and Verstappen at the top of the Driver’s Championship standings.

George Russell was the beneficiary of Verstappen and Norris’ clash at the Austrian Grand Prix last week and he’d love to follow that up with another win here. The Mercedes man is a 16/1 shot but will have more than a few backers for this one.

There hasn’t been a British winner of this race since 2021 and that winner was Lewis Hamilton. It marked a third consecutive victory on the circuit and an incredible eighth in total for Lewis. While finishing first may be too much of a stretch for him at 18/1, it is worth noting that Hamilton has finished on the podium in the British Grand Prix every year since 2014. CopyBet are offering 7/4 that the trend continues this weekend and the Mercedes driver bags another top three position.
