Hamilton is looking for his sixth win around the famous racetrack
The British Grand Prix is back this weekend but Lewis Hamilton will not start on pole as he looks to claim a historic sixth win at Silverstone.
The five-time world champion will become the most successful driver ever in his home race should he claim victory.
Hamilton and Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas have dominated this season but Red Bull’s Max Verstappen ended their winning run by taking the Austrian Grand Prix crown last time out.
While Hamilton will be eager for another win, he’ll start behind Bottas on the grid for the race.

British Grand Prix: What has been said?
Hamilton said: “Firstly congratulations to Valtteri he did a great job in qualifying, and I wasn’t good enough.
“It got a bit away from us, I sacrificed a lap in Q2 which would’ve helped us, and the second lap in Q3 just wasn’t that good. It’s a long race tomorrow and we’ve got a great crowd here so we’ll see what we can do.
“It’s the best grand prix of the whole year and that is because of the energy the people bring, and the tracks are brilliantly designed, but it’s the people that make this the best.”
Finland’s Bottas said: “It was very good again, it reminds you why you do this. It’s been pretty close all weekend and today with Lewis – it’s good to get a good lap and get pole.
“I knew the first lap was good but it wasn’t perfect and honestly I should’ve improved in the second run and I’m glad it was enough – it’s not easy to get a lap together.”
