Formula 1 racing at the British Grand Prix

Thu 5 JulSun 8 Jul 2018

The British Grand Prix at Silverstone takes place this year on 5 - 8 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, China, Bahrain, 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. F1® drivers call the British Grand Prix at the iconic Silverstone Circuit ‘insanely fast’.  

Both British drivers will be hoping to give the home fans something to cheer about at Silverstone by claiming a podium position.

What conditions will drivers face at the British Grand Prix?

Dry with some strong sunshine. Temperatures building through the weekend. Highs of 27C during Saturday and Sunday. High UV. Winds will be light and the air will be rather humid.
