After the rain during the first practice session, the drivers experienced better weather conditions during the second practice session at Silverstone.

During the first practice session we saw little action on the track, the teams and drivers had clearly waited for better weather as the track was immediately busy in these dry conditions.

A lot of teams introduced updates to their cars and of course they had to be evaluated. In addition to the many sensors on an F1 car, the ‘Flow Viz Paint’ is also used for this, and that was clearly visible on Alex Albon’s Williams F1 car (VIDEO: What is ‘flow-viz paint’ and what do F1 teams use it for?).

Ultimately, though, it’s all about setting the fastest time and preparing for the rest of the race weekend. It was Carlos Sainz who set the fastest time. The Spaniard was just faster in his Ferrari than the two British home drivers Lewis Hamilton and Lando Norris.

With Max Verstappen in fourth place, there are four different teams in the first four places. That promises for the rest of the race weekend.
