Sandy Stuvik was fastest in the practice session of Silverstone ahead of Alexander Albon and Jack Aitken.

As usual at Silverstone, the wind was quite strong during the session. Jake Hughes led the way ahead of Giuliano Alesi in the early stages of the session. Nirei Fukuzumi stopped on track and had the VSC deployed for a short time.

At the restart, Charles Leclerc and Albon challenged Hughes for the lead but the Briton held on. Then Stuvik found some early pace before the session was red flagged to retrieve some debris on track.

With three minutes to go, the battle between ART GP and Arden International continued, giving the advantage to the British squad. Stuvik was first of the session ahead of Albon and Aitken. De Vries, Dennis, Fuoco, Leclerc, Hughes, Fukuzumi and Parry completed the top 10.
