HIGHLIGHTS: Watch how the rainy opening practice session unfolded at Silverstone


Wet conditions made for limited running in FP1 for the 2022 British Grand Prix, drivers doing their best to turn laps before Lance Stroll spun with seconds remaining.

Valtteri Bottas equipped himself with inters to set the fastest time in FP1 for Alfa Romeo – with ex-team mate Lewis Hamilton finishing second, half a second off, having opted for soft tyres on his Mercedes.

Rain made for tough going, teams choosing to save their sets of inters and limit their lap counts, Hamilton setting the most with 10 and Bottas clocking eight laps of Silverstone.

Ferrari got limited running in, Carlos Sainz finishing third and team mate Charles Leclerc fourth, while Mick Schumacher rounded out the top five for Haas.

In a late gamble on slick tyres, Aston Martin's Stroll spun at Copse to bring out a red flag and an early end to the session. Watch that incident and more in the video player above.
