Silverstone – The Inside Line

Paddy Lowe, Executive Director (Technical)

"After a successful week in Austria with a 1-2 finish on the Sunday and a productive test the following week, we come to Silverstone – one of our home Grands Prix. This circuit is, of course, very close to our factories in Brackley and Brixworth – providing a great opportunity for everyone to see the fruits of their labour in action. So, we’ll very much be hoping to put on a good performance for them and the fantastic British crowds. As a circuit, Silverstone has several quite different characteristics to those we’ve visited recently. It’s a track that is a good test of aerodynamics, rewards good downforce and is not at all demanding on the brakes – so a stark contrast to Canada and Austria in particular. In theory this should play to the strengths of the W06 – but of course we take nothing for granted. We’ve been preparing thoroughly for this race as always, with a few aerodynamic updates set to feature and a few things to be brought forward from the Austria test. It’s a big weekend for Lewis in front of his home crowd and also a venue where Nico has been very strong in the past, so fingers crossed we can put on a good show for the fans."
