A touching tribute to Murray Walker, Lando Norris’ NHS nod and a six-figure Silverstone crowd… here are FIVE talking points away from the track after Max Verstappen extended his championship lead

Max Verstappen beat Lewis Hamilton in the inaugural 17-lap Sprint at Silverstone, with the Dutchman increasing his world championship lead to 33 points. The Sprint determines the starting places for Sunday’s race and aims to create more excitement over the weekend. On an historic weekend at the British Grand Prix, Sportsmail’s NATHAN SALT takes you through some of the main talking points away from the track. There were 100,000 packed into the stands and Sunday’s race will welcome 140,000 in the biggest sporting event since the pandemic began. The Sprint was doing so much right until it came to the parade lap where, stood on a moving lorry, Verstappen was presented with a winners’ wreath.
