About Formula 1 British Grand Prix

The British Grand Prix is the UK’s premier race car event and is part of the FIA Formula One Championships. It will typically be held on the Silverstone Circuit, which can be found by the village named Silverstone which is located in Northamptonshire, England. As of last year the event has been held 68 times, with this year’s event being the 69th edition. The British Grand Prix, along with the Italian Grand Prix, are notable as they are the only two Formula One championships which have been held continuously since the competition was first held in 1950.

Reports indicate that Silverstone has put over £5 million into the financing of this event. The circuit is new and described as being super-fast, and a number of additional enhancements have been made to the viewing area for spectators. For instance, the viewing banks have been elevated, and the both the fence lines and grandstands have been placed closer to the track to give attendees a better view of the action.

What is most exciting, particularly to the drivers, will be the fresh race track design. It retains all the essential ingredients of Silverstone, which are its speed and flow, yet has been modified to be more challenging technically. Scientific data has been compiled which is determined by mathematical interpolations and simulations which have produced a track design which is unlike anywhere else on Earth. Although the circuit length has been extended by approximately 760m, the actual lap times for the F1 vehicles will be increased by about four seconds. New circuit sections have also been incorporated to keep it in compliance with safety regulations established by MotoGP. This track was designed specifically for both four and two wheel races.
