Silverstone welcomes storm Evert to the Classic.

Historic Formula One, Silverstone Classic, Silverstone,

Well, after what feels like a very long two years; the Silverstone Classic is back for its three-day festival of iconic motorsport. With all the recent hot weather in the UK, things were looking positive on the weather front. However, as Friday approached it was apparent that this would probably not be the case. Friday arrived and so did the first UK summer storm of 2021.

The start of the three-day festival saw Friday’s feature-packed program of qualifying sessions, lasting just over ten hours. The results of the qualifying sessions set the grids for Saturday’s race action.

Most of the day saw many drivers undertaking their qualifying sessions on what was a very wet and slippery Grand Prix circuit.
