Brief Overview

Silverstone circuit was re-purposed as a race circuit after it serving as a RAF airfield. The circuit has a multitude of configurations and types of races held there however the one that is used for Formula 1 is called the Arena Grand Prix Circuit.

Silverstone is well known for its infamous Copse – Maggots – Becketts. Some regard this series of corners as the best corners of the entire F1 calendar. In modern day F1 cars, the cars are able to take this series of corners flat out! In all it is a 5.9km track with 18 corners.

This is the last of the triple stint. The teams will finally be able to take a little breather after the British GP.

With Mercedes’ double DNF heartbreak in Austria, will the Silver Arrows bounce back onto the podium this weekend or will Ferrari expand their lead?
