Waiting is the hardest part in Formula 1.
Things are getting good in the driver’s championship this year: Red Bull enters the British Grand Prix on a five-race winning streak, with Max Verstappen sitting firmly atop the table entering Lewis Hamilton’s home GP.
This year hasn’t just been about Verstappen and Hamilton, though: Youngster Lando Norris has staked his claim as the next, extremely talented racer who could one day secure a championship for himself. The McLaren driver has finished in the top five for eight of the nine races run so far this year, earning podiums in three of those races.
Here’s what you need to know about the next F1 race:
