The Formula 1 World Championship recommences this weekend with round four at Silverstone for the British GP to be followed by the 70th Anniversary GP next weekend at the same circuit.
The championship commenced at Silverstone in 1950 so when the decision was made to have back-to-back rounds at the circuit it made sense to acknowledge the role the circuit played in the championship.
The big question going into this round is whether Mercedes Benz can continue their season domination so far and their mortgage on the British race results over the past five years.
The introduction of the high technology Hybrid era in 2014 saw the German team thrash the opposition with 16 wins from 19 races and they have continued that domination up to the present day.
Since 2015 the team has won all five pole positions for the race courtesy of Lewis Hamilton (four) and Valtteri Bottas with Hamilton winning four of the races.
In 2018 the race was won by Sebastian Vettel in his Ferrari from Hamilton who was spun by Kimi Raikkonen on the opening lap and had to fight back from the rear of the field.
Of the 15 podium positions in five years Mercedes Benz has nine to Ferrari's five with Red Bull on one.
To put that in perspective Mercedes Benz has scored 200 points over the five years which is almost double second-placed Ferrari on 107.
To continue the domination theme this year MB has taken all three pole positions and all three races with Hamilton on two and Bottas one.
Hamilton leads the championship on 63 points from Bottas on 58 with Red Bull's Max Verstappen, 33 and McLaren's Lando Norris, 22.
So who can realistically challenge them?
Verstappen is probably the best chance, and based on their performance so far this year, I would have said Racing Point was an outside possibility.
That was until it was announced on Friday that lead driver Sergio Perez had tested positive to COVID-19 and is now in quarantine, leaving Lance Stroll to fly the flag and with due respect, it's a long shot.
The team is due to make an announcement regarding a replacement driver for this race and the next with out-of-work Nico Hulkenberg the best option.
McLaren has not won a race since the Brazilian GP at the end of 2012 with Jenson Button, but there have been some very positive signs this year with both Carlos Sainz and especially Lando Norris showing much improved speed.
Ferrari has been very disappointing to say the least, and unless there has been some kind of miracle in the past two weeks it's difficult to see them challenging the top two teams.
It's been five months since round one of the World Superbike Championship at Phillip Island so teams will be delighted to return to racing this weekend at Jerez in Spain for round two.
Race one at the island saw a changing of the guard with Turkish rider Toprak Razgatlioglu take the honours for Yamaha from Alex Lowes on the Kawasaki and Scott Reading on the Ducati.
Defending champion Jonathon Rea had an uncustomary DNF but then fought back in the Sunday Superpole race to win from the top three from race one with Reading in front of Lowes.
Only three-tenths-of-a-second covered the top four riders after ten laps and then race fans were treated to a fantastic battle in race three with Lowes taking the honours over Rea by 0.037 seconds.
The points score is led by Lowes on 51 from Reading on 39 with Razgatlioglu on 34 and Rea on 32.
There are seven more rounds on the schedule at the moment with a further three to be determined so like all other major championships it's very much a condensed and shorter calendar.
This will be the third weekend in a row that the Jerez circuit has hosted a world championship race with the first two rounds of the Moto GP held at the circuit.
