The race is on at Silverstone!

Written by: Neil

Another weekend and another tense fight is sure to come between the Mercedes teammates of Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg in the world of Formula 1.

The British Grand Prix is taking place at the iconic Silverstone circuit this coming weekend and the stage is set for what promises to be a titanic battle between the pair, with tensions running high following last weekend's coming together of the drivers in Austria.

In the wake of the latest crash between the two championship frontrunners, there had been talk that a new era of team orders could be employed at Mercedes to limit the likelihood of any further incidents between the drivers for the remainder of the season.

However, team principal Toto Wolff has now stated this will not be the case and the pair will be allowed to continue to race (for the time being). He made it clear that further collisions between the two would not be tolerated though, so expect significant consequences if there is contact in the remainder of the season!

It's great news for the fans and for both Lewis and Nico, as it means the wheel-to-wheel action will continue to come thick and fast in the races ahead – something that has been a highlight for many in the year so far.

The British Grand Prix will start at 13:00 BST on Sunday (July 10th) and promises to be another fabulous spectacle of the best drivers and most advanced racing cars on the planet in action. We can't wait!
