WEEKEND WARM-UP: Bearman, Verstappen and Norris dominate the chat ahead of the British GP


Ollie Bearman will be a fully-fledged F1 driver in 2025, and Max Verstappen and Lando Norris are still “great friends” despite their fraught Red Bull Ring crash – just two things we learned on Thursday at the British Grand Prix…

Bearman was announced as Haas’s first driver pick for 2025 as the paddock converged on Silverstone on Thursday morning, the 19-year-old Brit now with the opportunity to build on his points-scoring debut for Ferrari at Saudi Arabia earlier this year.

Elsewhere, the media were laser-focused on Verstappen and Norris, and whether their friendship was still intact following their controversial coming together in Austria last Sunday.

To break down all that and more, join Will Buxton, Laura Winter, Ruth Buscombe, Jolyon Palmer, Alex Brundle and Lawrence Barretto as they analyse all the hot stories ahead of the British Grand Prix.
