The 2013 Formula1 British Grand Prix weekend resumes on Saturday, with the third and final practice session starting mid-morning. The 60-minute session will be followed by the all-important qualifying period and the race will, as usual, be on Sunday afternoon.

Mercedes' Nico Rosberg was fastest in Friday's second practice session and Toro Rosso enjoyed an unexpected ray of sunshine and spotlights in the Friday morning session, after heavy rains truncated the 90-minute period into an eight minute shootout.

Daniel Ricciardo topped the sheets in the morning after a brief and almost pointless end to a practice session that saw championship contenders Sebastian Vettel, Kimi Raikkonen and Fernando Alonso sit out and not post times.

Vettel and his team mate, Mark Webber, stormed back to second and third in the second session but both Raikkonen and Alonso struggled, with the Ferrari driver the better of the two in 10th place.

Friday Practice Review

Nico Rosberg and Mercedes finished on top of the timesheets after the second practice session at Silverstone, for the 2013 Formula 1 British Grand Prix. The German posted 1:32.248 to lead the Red Bull Racing pair of Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel, both of whom were within half a second of the German.

The British pair of Force India's Paul di Resta and Rosberg's team mate Lewis Hamilton rounded out the top five, with the latter the last driver to lap below the 1:33.000 mark.

The first session's hero, Ricciardo, maintained an impressive start to his race weekend, finishing sixth on 1:33.171. Crucially for him, he remained ahead of team mate Jean-Eric Vergne. Adrian Sutil, meanwhile, couldn't manage his Force India partner's performance at the sharp end, managing only 1:33.313 for eighth. Lotus-Renault's Romain Grosjean and Alonso rounded out the top ten.

Earlier in the days, heavy rains all but cancelled the first practice session, with no times being set until the final eight minutes of a 90-minute session.

The second practice period began in dry weather but the track was still slippery. And that caught out Ferrari's Felipe Massa, who spun exiting Stowe and was left unable to improve on 1:43.466.

There was little drama elsewhere, with teams and drivers far too busy getting as much track time as possible, ahead of Saturday's qualifying session. Alonso would have been disappointed with his 10th place though; the Spaniard was on pole here last year but will need to drastically improve on his 1:33.494 to challenge for the front row this year.

Weather News

Teams, drivers and spectators at Silverstone will be relieved to know there is no further rain forecast for the weekend. Of course, that could all change very quickly but... as of now... we expect sunshine and maybe a few clouds in the morning.

Air temperatures for the start of the third practice session are likely to be between 16C and 20C but with a slight nip in the wind, the mercury could drop a few degrees. There is also a fairly brisk breeze expected, between 13km/h and 17km/h, blowing north/north-westerly direction.

This should make navigating the old stadium section - Luffield and Woodcote - and perhaps even the Becketts complex interesting, given the wind will angle across cars on the racing line.

For now, forecasts are not particularly different for the qualifying period, which is scheduled to start at 1pm. Air temperatures and humidity will increase slightly but not drastically. All in all, it should be a wonderful summer's day to go racing.
