0726LW7DX1409Historic Silverstone prepares to welcome the drivers, teams and fans for the British Grand Prix on Sunday following two heavily contrasting days of weather conditions.

Friday’s downpour cost many teams valuable time in their bid to understand their cars as much as possible ahead of qualifying, but it did not appear to hinder Mercedes as they locked out the front row on Saturday. Lewis Hamilton pulled out a stunning final lap to seal his second pole at Silverstone by 0.452 seconds, causing pandemonium in the grandstands as the Union Jack-coated fans made their approval abundantly clear. The big question is whether or not Mercedes can hang on in the race as Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber loom ominously behind in P3 and P4, both having won this race before. Of course, the likes of Kimi Raikkonen (P8) and Fernando Alonso (P9) can never be discounted, whilst Paul di Resta will still be gunning for points despite being relegated to the back of the grid for a technical infringement.

Throughout the race, Richland F1 will be providing live commentary via its Twitter account. You can follow @RichlandF1 here.

For viewers in the UK, Sky Sports F1 and the BBC will be showing the race live, and their coverage begins at 11:30 and 12:10 BST. Both channels will be providing their usual comprehensive post-race coverage, with the ever-popular BBC Forum available on the red button.

In the USA, you can watch the race live on CNBC, with coverage starting at 07:30ET on NBCSN, before the race starts at 08:00ET. For details of live streaming, click here.

The race promises to be a thrilling one, so be sure to keep up to date with all of the action with Richland F1.
