F1 British Grand Prix live, race updates, highlights: Red flag on lap 1 after Zhou incident

2022 F1 British Grand Prix as it happens: commentary and highlights

Red flag: The Sky Sports commentary team have thankfully announced that Zhou Guanyu is out of his stricken Alfa Romeo car but is heading to hospital as a precaution. All other drivers are also fine and accounted for.

We still haven't seen a replay of the incident but elsewhere, Verstappen stole the lead from Sainz whilst Hamilton jumped Perez and Leclerc into P3. 

Lap 1: As mentioned before, the red flag is out here and it looks like a very serious crash into the opening corner. We've seen no replays yet of the incident. 

RACE START: And we're off here at Silverstone! 142,000 Formula One fans roar as the cars get off the line but it's an instant red flag as there's a huge crash into the opening corner. It looks like Russell, Zhou Guangyu, Tsunoda, Ocon and Albon are all involved. 

2 mins to lights out: The cars are all out on track to begin their formation lap ahead of the 2022 British Grand Prix. 

15 mins to lights out: Someone who could prove a handful this afternoon for the Ferrari and Red Bull drivers ahead is Lewis Hamilton who starts his home GP in P5 this time around.
