“All in all, the British Grand Prix at Silverstone is always a great weekend.

“It has the best crowds of the year, the fans are incredibly passionate and the circuit offers great racing.”

His teammate, Canadian Nicholas Latifi, added: “I am super excited for Silverstone, it is my favourite track on the calendar by far.

“It’s also the team’s home race, so I’m very excited to be a part of that as I didn’t have my own home race this year, but this will be just as special.

“I am hoping for a very strong weekend to make it all the better.”
