    Am I right in thinking it's 3 back-to-back-to-back races?

    It should be 3 races back to back. The 2 at Silverstone followed by Barcelona. Obviously the Spanish race will depend on the developing situation with CV-19.

    Woohoo live motor-racing!

    How many times has Lewis won here? Can he equal or better 8 times after next weekend?

    He's won the British GP 6 times so far, so if he wins it would be 7 times. Technically if he wins the following weekend as well it's the '70th Anniversary GP' so wouldn't count as the 8th British GP victory.

    With Barcelona being the centre of Spain's second surge it doesn't look great, does it? Does anyone know if there's a contingency plan to move it elsewhere?

    Not that I've heard but a very exciting rumour going around at the moment is that Istanbul may be back. Love that track on games though T8 doesn't love me

    Yeah, but everytime anyone mentions it I'm going to sing "...used to be Constantinople" to myself :(

    That would be awesome. Turkey is a great track. Memories of Button squeezing past Vettel up the hill in 2009, and the Red Bulls colliding and Button and Hamilton duelling in 2010.

    I very much doubt we will get the Spanish gp.

    Its only just picking up. In 2 weeks it could be much worse.

    Should get the two UK ones

    Dissapointed it's live on C4. I'll watch catch up but I'll have to sit through all the boring bits of the race
    At least highlights removes most of the boredom. Wonder if that's why I rate them higher than the majority.

    LOL - at least the 2nd Silverstone visit should be just highlights - it's only the "British" GP C4 have rights for

    Two races at Silverstone. Hell yeah. Cant wait. Mercedes going to have some serious pace round some of those corners.

    Ferrari's announcement that they won't be competitive until 2022 has really irked me, it doesn't sit well at all. It's an even bigger admission of guilt that their success last year was 100% down to their (undisclosed) illegal power package. RBR would have definitely beaten them to 2nd place last year without it. So poorly handled by the FIA but at least Ferrari are suffering some sort of consequences, even if they appear self-inflicted.

    I can see the Mercedes walking this! Top 4 lockout.. Wonder what sort of odds I'd get on that!

    It’s a disgrace. The whole grid has been screwed by this and the FIA has swept it under the carpet. Suddenly getting poles and wins and then just as quickly they are nowhere. Funny thing is, loads of the teams are pinning their hopes on 2022, but with Mercedes so far ahead now they’ll be working just as hard on their 2022 car.
