Formula 1 returns to Europe

The Formula 1 circuit is back in Europe and there is one mammoth race first up as we gear up for the British Grand Prix at Silverstone.

Will there be a repeat of last year’s drama which saw Max Verstappen drop out of the race following a contentious collision with eventual winner Lewis Hamilton in the opening lap?

Or will be it business as usual for Verstappen who is already gaining a sizable lead in the Drivers’ Championship following a poor run from Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc.

The British Grand Prix will be the first of three races to headline a hectic July which will also see the circuit head to Austria before closing out the month in France.
