Fri 8 Jul - Sun 10 Jul 2016

The British Grand Prix at Silverstone takes place this year on 8-10 July, as part of the Formula 1 season.

Silverstone is the tenth race in the Formula 1 season, with the teams having already raced in Australia, Bahrain, China, Russia, Spain, Monaco, Canada, Azerbaijan and Austria.

Silverstone has been regarded as the 'Home of British Motor Racing' since hosting its first Grand Prix in 1948.

All three British drivers will be hoping to give the home fans something to cheer about at Silverstone by claiming a podium position. Lewis Hamilton will be looking to repeat last year's win, to claim his 7th podium position this season. Brits Jenson Button and Will Stevens will also be looking to impress the home crowd.
