During the British Grand Prix weekend, some of the drivers decided to have some fun at the circuit. Renault driver Daniel Ricciardo, tried his hand at cricket, since the Cricket World Cup is wrapping up soon with the final on Sunday.

The Australian driver was batting and he managed to send a six into the stands. In all honesty, that was probably the only bright spark for Australian fans after the defending champions were knocked out by England.

Later on, in the practice session of the British Grand Prix, Ricciardo finished 8th, behind teammate Nico Hulkenberg. Meanwhile, Red Bull topped the time sheets in FP1, though it was not Max Verstappen. Instead, to the surprise of many, it was Pierre Gasly who is trying to shake of the demons of his poor form so far this season. Verstappen himself ended the session in 3rd, sandwiching Mercedes driver Valtteri Bottas.

Home hero, Lewis Hamilton was 4th, ahead of the Ferrari pair, of Charles LeClerc and Sebastian Vettel respectively. Hulkenberg, meanwhile, was best of the rest ahead of Daniel Ricciardo, Alexander Albon and Carlos Sainz Jr.
