A revamped Digest show previews the upcoming British Grand Prix, as Formula One returns to Silverstone for some fast and furious racing action. After two street circuits have twisted up the order, it's time for the F1 paddock return to a permanent track, and one that is steeped in racing history.

We take a look at the makeup of the Silverstone track and who it might favour, which teams and drivers have had successful outings in the UK in recent history, plus a glimpse of the championship standings and who is leading the way.

There's a brief roundup of the tyre options available to drivers this weekend, plus that oh-so-important look ahead at the weather forecast for the three days of track action. All that plus statistics, background, milestones and more await you in this new and improved F1 Digest preview show.
