The British Grand Prix is synonymous with Formula 1. Holding the title of the oldest race on the grid, the British Grand Prix hosted Formula 1’s first-ever race and is known as the home of British motorsport.

Formula 1 British Grand Prix 2021

Dating back to 1926, before the actual formation of the F1 World Championship, the British Grand Prix along with the Italian Grand Prix, are the only two races that have been held every single year since Formula One’s first inception.

Though the British Grand Prix has been held at several race tracks including the likes of Aintree, Brooklands, and Brands Hatch, the Silverstone International Circuit more often than not been the venue most associated with the British Grand Prix.

While there are currently three British drivers on the grid, namely eight-time world champion, Lewis Hamilton, McLaren’s Lando Norris, and Williams’ George Russell, six of the ten current teams have their headquarters based in the UK. which means the British Grand Prix is also the home race for several mechanics and crew members. In previous years, when unlimited testing was allowed, the Silverstone track was one of the primary destinations for teams to test on, given it’s close proximity to the race team’s factories.

The track features some of the most exciting corners on the calendar with the Maggots, Becketts, and Chapel sequence one of the hardest set of turns for the drivers to master. Other notable corners on the circuit include Woodcote, Copse, Luffied, Stowe, and Abbey. This year the track decided to name its pit-straight in honor of Lewis Hamilton, who equaled Michael Schumacher’s tally of seven world championship titles.

Lewis Hamilton holds the record for most wins on the circuit, winning the race an incredible seven times. Two-time Scottish World Champion Jim Clarke and four-time French World Champion Alain Prost are tied on second having won the race five times each with former World Champion and British legend Nigel Mansell winning the race four times.

Of the current grid, only Sebastian Vettel and Fernando Alonso have won the race more than once along with Hamilton.

Despite several scares in the past regarding the circuit’s future, the venue remains one of the more popular features on the Formula 1 calendar.

The British Grand Prix 2020

The British Grand Prix was one of two races run at Silverstone in 2020 (the other being the 70th Anniversary Grand Prix). After securing pole position on the Saturday of the weekend, Lewis Hamilton put in an impressive display of driving prowess on Sunday leading from teammate Valtteri Bottas. However, both Mercedes cars would suffer from tire failures which would drop Bottas out of the points once he completed his pitstop.

Red Bull’s Max Verstappen would pit in order to safeguard against a tire failure and would go on the claim the fastest lap closing down Hamilton who himself suffered a front-left tire delamination on the last lap. In the end, Hamilton was able to limp home to his seventh British Grand Prix win, six seconds ahead of Dutchman Verstappen.
