Great lap from George Russell!. It should be exciting tomorrow with Hamilton and Verstappen side by side. I think Mercedes needed that result though as it felt like Red Bull were running away with the season.

Honestly not sure why this is better than qualifying on a Saturday, it's a glorified race stint. Having a reverse grid for the top 10 with Friday qualifying deciding the Sunday race grid order is what I would be more in favour of. If not that just keep qualifying as is but move its start time back to the evening since the goal here is to also try to increase viewership numbers by having things later in the day. Also, the current format pretty much makes Saturday practice meaningless besides testing tyre deg.

The McLarens are in a great position, great to see Ricciardo up with Lando for this start. There was also a nice piece on Sky of the both of them and Zak Brown racing around Silverstone in McLaren sports cars.
