Will it be rain or shine at Silverstone this weekend? As the teams and drivers get busy preparing for the race, let's take a look at the weather forecast for the British Grand Prix.

The fourth round of the 2020 Formula 1 season takes us to the Northamptonshire countryside for the home race of seven of the 10 teams on the grid, and four of the current drivers – Lewis Hamilton, Lando Norris, George Russell and Alex Albon.

This weekend marks the 71st World Championship British Grand Prix, and Silverstone has hosted such epics as Johnny Herbert's 1995 triumph, Nigel Mansell's wins in 1987, 1991 and 1992, and Lewis Hamilton's first victory there in 2008. Not to mention last year's epic battle between Charles Leclerc and Max Verstappen, plus Sebastian Vettel's 2018 win for Ferrari.
