British GP: When to watch practice, qualifying and BOTH races on Sky Sports F1 as Sprint format debuts

Get ready for a British GP like never before this weekend on Sky Sports F1 with the debut of an all-new format, and an all-new weekend schedule.

A Grand Prix at Silverstone is a highlight on the Formula 1 calendar no matter the year but in 2021 there is even more to get excited about with three days of competitive action and, for the first time in the sport’s history, a race on the Saturday to set the grid for the main race on the Sunday.

  • British GP new format explained: F1 Sprint Q&A

Sky F1 is your home for all the action, with a bumper team of experts at the Home of British Motorsport and a must-watch schedule. The key times for the weekend are…

  • F1 Sprint takes place on SATURDAY at 4.30pm, with build-up from 3.40pm
  • The British GP takes place on SUNDAY at 3pm, with build-up from 1.30pm

Saturday’s F1 Sprint – a short 17-lap race – will set the grid for the Sunday showpiece race.

On top of the above, there is also another practice session – before F1 Sprint – and a host of features and live shows on Sky Sports F1.

Max Verstappen came into the weekend with a 32-point title lead over home favourite Lewis Hamilton, the seven-time champion and seven-time Silverstone winner.
