Lando Norris makes a quick start to British Grand Prix practice

McLaren’s Lando Norris started his home British Grand Prix weekend in style on Friday with the top time in first practice while Red Bull rival Max Verstappen was fourth on the timesheets. Norris lapped the Silverstone circuit with a best time of one minute 27.420 seconds on softs, 0.134 faster than Aston Martin’s Lance Stroll.

McLaren’s Oscar Piastri was third and 0.211 off the pace, suffering from a late hydraulics issue, with last year’s winner and triple Formula One champion Verstappen 0.309 slower than Norris but on the medium tyres.
The Dutch driver is 81 points clear of closest rival Norris after 11 of 24 races, with the pair fighting an increasingly tight battle on the track even if the championship gap is significant.

Mercedes’ George Russell, gifted the win in Austria last weekend after Norris and Verstappen collided while fighting for the lead, was fifth with Aston Martin’s Fernando Alonso sixth on an overcast but dry afternoon.
