Yelloly has been confirmed so I read earlier! He changes teams quicker than British weather changes it's mind!

Don't know why Yelloly didn't try and make a proper fist out of FR3.5. He always looked much quicker there than GP2/3

That's quite true, he'd built himself a nice platform with his 2012 season and it was a shame not to see him carry the momentum over into 2013.

Once again, Tio Ellinas is fastest after Friday's running, but the obvious question is can he finally transfer his traditional Friday performances over to the weekend? As usual, I really hope he can finally break his podium duck, which would be fitting at Strakka's home round.

I just have this feeling that Nyck de Vries might be one to watch this weekend - he had a great weekend in Austria last time out and he seems to be making consistent progress at each round - DAMS seem to have got over their Hungaroring blip too and are looking in good shape for a strong weekend.

Hats off to Will Bratt too - he hasn't raced a single-seaters in nearly four years and was only just over 0.1s shy of teammate Armand in the afternoon session.

And Tio gets his first FR3.5 pole ahead of Vaxiviere!

Rowland and Jaafar on row two with Fantin and Dillmann on row three.

Stoneman only 11th and Will Bratt qualified 17th ahead of Philo Paz Armand.

Yelloly and Nissany both failed to set a time.

Great 3.5 race for 2nd position.

Massive accident on lap 1 of the Formula Renault 2.0 race, one car on top of the barriers and another about 30 foot into the air. Both drivers okay but wouldn't surprised if Ferdinand Habsburg doesnt have some back problems.

Just seen the Habsburg accident and I haven't seen a single-seater get that high in the air in a long time! Sounds as if he and Daruvala (the one who ended on top of the barriers) escaped pretty much unharmed so that's good news.

As for FR3.5, what a race from Tio! He drove a brilliant race, no mistakes and was never really under any real pressure. Great result for him and Strakka - hopefully he can keep this momentum going for the rest of the season.

Rowland seriously impressed me with his racecraft in some of the battles he was involved in and his overtakes at The Loop were excellently judged - made all the better by the fact his brakes were on fire on the grid which didn't bode well!

It's a shame that Stoneman had his second DNF in a row and also for Jaafar as his early season form has just vanished over the past few rounds.

Had a great day out there yesterday, i missed the last WSR event 4 years ago so was looking forward to this. Thankfully the weather stayed cool but dry which seemed to bring plenty people out to watch.
Good racing from all the series involved and best news is tho no one suffered any major injuries from the 2 first lap crashes in the FR2.0 race.
Plus as a bonus it was great to hear a proper F1 engine again.

Anyway here my vid from the day, including at 6:25 mark the RB8 doing a good rendition of God Save the Queen.

Vaxiviere bags pole for R2, trying to keep his title hopes alive. He's the only man who can match Rowland right now.

But Rowland strikes back! Vaxiviere 2nd after putting up a good fight, with Fantin getting his first podium of the season in 3rd...

Great day at Silverstone today, weather was pretty much perfect and the track action was excellent too

Was sat in the main grandstand opposite the National pits they were using this weekend - seriously, the sound of 20 FR3.5 cars revving and howling before the lights dropped was absolutely amazing, I just love the sound of these cars!

Egor Orudzhev had a terrible start in the Arden car, sort of Kimi-esque from Monza today, which meant Gustav Malja had to take avoiding action pretty quickly. After that, even though there was no big screen nearby, I managed to follow the action pretty well through a combination of the trackside radio and the WSR live timing on my phone (which was helped by a pretty damn perfect 4G signal!)

Once the safety car came in and all the pitstops were done you could visibly see the gap between Stoneman and Fantin closing over the last few laps and, to use a cliché, if the race had been another 3/4 laps longer Dean might just have got past, but still fourth place and the rookie win was a pretty good result after two DNF's in a row.

Rowland is just driving beautifully at the moment and what ever Vaxiviere seems to throw at him, Olly has an answer for it. He has a pretty healthy 36-point lead now, but there are still six races left and 150 points up for grabs so it's not a done deal by any means, but I do think Vaxiviere has got to rely on some bad luck for Rowland whilst also continuing to deliver the goods himself to stand a chance.

was it just me who was getting a liiiiiiittle frustrated by the trackside commentary by about 11am on saturday...

surprised to see that the crowd was only 20,000 across the weekend though - it felt like more than that at times.
