What time is the 2021 F1 British Grand Prix and the first ever F1 Sprint – and how can I watch them?


Don't miss this iconic moment as F1 Sprint makes its debut at the 2021 British Grand Prix. Here's how – and where – you can catch the action at Silverstone this weekend.

F1 Sprint is a new format for 2021 that will see the grid engage a 100 kilometre dash. No pit stops, free tyre choice, and all-out action, in an event that will set the grid for Sunday's Grand Prix.

Free Practice 1 will still take place on Friday, before qualifying – which will set the grid order for the Sprint.

Saturday heralds FP2 before the debut F1 Sprint event, and the 2021 British Grand Prix takes place on Sunday afternoon as usual.
