The weather hit hard the first free practice of the British Grand Prix.
The rain continued to fall after the clock start running and very few cars ventured out on the track because there was a lot of standing water on it and all teams that brought in updates were afraid to run them because of the damp conditions.
With 45 minutes to go Daniel Ricciardo took his Toro Rosso for a spin but his example was not followed by any other team so with half of the session over no car have set a time.
James Rossiter also came to the Silverstone track for his first taste of the real thing after all the ours he spend into Force India simulator but the team decided not to let him run since he could learn nothing because of the bad weather.
