F1 70th Anniversary GP Live : Bottas finishes fastest in the first practice, Hamilton 2nd

Valtteri Bottas, who has signed a new deal to stay with Mercedes for 2021, has finished as the quickest man in the opening practice session with a 1:26.166. As normal, Mercedes finished one-two with Lewis Hamilton 0.138 seconds was slower than Bottas to finish second in the first practice race of 70th Anniversary GP  live at Silverstone. 

Max Verstappen finished third in the opening session.
Racing Point’s Nico Hulkenberg, standing in again for Sergio Perez who still has coronavirus, was fourth. Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc and Red Bull’s Alex Albon were fifth and sixth.

Attention in the first session was focused on the ‘soft’ tyre, after Pirelli’s decision to supply rubber for this race that is one step softer than at last weekend’s British Grand Prix.

The soft being used this weekend is the second-softest in Pirelli’s range and was not available last week.

All the drivers experienced problems with the soft in temperatures approaching 30C around the demanding high-speed sweeps of Silverstone, both in terms of making it last for a flying lap and in terms of durability over a longer run, and it seems likely that teams will try to avoid it if they can for the race.

F1 70th Anniversary GP LIVE : What are the odds for Hamilton’s win?

Lewis Hamilton is dominating the F1 Season this year like no one else. Hamilton is at record setting spree with 3 out of 4 races already under his belt. Will his domination continue once again at Silverstone tracks as the inaugural 70th Anniversary Grand Prix at Silverstone is scheduled for Sunday in Silverstone, Great Britain 

Unsurprisingly, following his victory at the British Grand Prix under dramatic circumstances, it’s Hamilton who will once again start as favorite this weekend, while team mate Valtteri Bottas’ odds have lengthened a touch, after Hamilton looked to have the Finn in check around Silverstone.

Here are the TV timings of the 2020 F1 World Championship season.
