The Circuit

Silverstone is something of a home race for the team. The Brackley factory is a mere nine miles away and the home of Mercedes AMG High Performance Powertrains at Brixworth is just over 20 miles from the track.

There is an inextricable link between Great Britain and Formula One racing. Not only is the British Grand Prix the oldest race on the calendar, but seven of the championship’s 10 teams are based in the UK.

A former Aerodrome, Silverstone will forever have the honour of being the first track to hold an official Formula 1 World Championship race in 1950, and while the British Grand Prix switched between Aintree, Brands Hatch and Silverstone, it has found its permanent home at the latter since 1987. In 2010 a new infield loop debuted, and this was followed one year later by the new ‘Wing’ pit complex. 

There’s nothing like a home crowd, and some of the more recent visits to Silverstone have seen a thrilling race played out in front of an electric atmosphere. Our connection to the British Grand Prix grew even stronger in 2022 when we raced with an all-British driver line-up for the first time at the event.  

Check out our F1 schedule to find out what time the British Grand Prix starts as well as the practice and qualifying session timings.

Lewis Hamilton has won the British Grand Prix eight times, a feat no other driver has ever achieved.

Silverstone boasts some of the most iconic corner names in the whole of motorsport, with unusual turn names such as Maggotts, Becketts and Farm.
