FIA F2 rookie Dan Ticktum finds himself fifth overall in the drivers’ standings after solid performances in the first three rounds of the season.
The last time the 21-year-old visited Silverstone for a race weekend was in 2018 when he produced an emphatic win in the first of three FIA Formula 3 European Championship races. This weekend he will try to use his experience at the circuit to produce more strong performances.
Meanwhile in FIA F3 four ISM drivers will be in action.

David Beckmann enjoyed his first win of the season at the last round in Hungary and produced two podium finishes in the second round at Red Bull Ring. His Trident team-mate Olli Caldwell will be looking to get more top 10 finishes under his belt in his rookie season.
Logan Sargeant is the closest challenger to his championship leading Prema team-mate going into the Silverstone double-header. The American just missed out on a podium last time out in Hungary, and will want to keep the pressure on Oscar Piastri.
