After Covid-19 deprived us of the 2020 British MotoGP, the action returns to Silverstone this weekend in the 12th race of a thrilling season.

If it's anything like last time, when Alex Rins pipped Marc Marquez to win by 0.014 seconds, we are in for a cracker this weekend.

Make your device's home page spoiler-free!

You asked, we listened! The latest version of our award-winning app on mobile and tablets allows you to customise your home page to avoid seeing spoilers the morning after the big fights.

To make the switch to a spoiler-free home page, open up the app and click 'More' in the bottom corner.

Under 'Settings' change the 'Landing page' option from 'Home' to 'Spoiler-free replays'.

You will then need to exit and close your app. Once you reload the app, your home page will default to the 'Spoiler-free' tab in the Sports navigation menu.

Once you're done in spoiler-free mode, you can either revert your home page back to the default option - or simply navigate away from the spoiler-free tab and check out some of our other must-see content across the app.
