History of the F1 Silvertone GP

Silverstone has hosted the race regularly since the start of the F1 championship in 1950 (in which it was the first race of the first ever official World Championship) and every year since 1987; it alternated with Brands Hatch between 1964 and 1986, and with Aintree (better known as a horse-racing course) between 1955 and 1962.

Before it was heavily modified in 1991, Silverstone was one of the fastest tracks on the Formula 1 calendar. The drivers loved the challenge of the sweeping and extremely demanding Copse, Stowe and Club corners (which in its last years, each corner was taken progressively faster than the one before it). 1982 World Champion Keke Rosberg held the all-time Formula 1 qualifying lap record for 16 years after posting fastest time for the 1985 British Grand Prix with an average speed of 258.983 km/h (160.92 mph).

SEBASTIEN VETTEL 1.80 bWIN Holds all the cards to became World Champion this year again. 6 races won and 2 second places from 8 races and the Championship seems to be decided. He has no rival this year until now, and the others have to put out a lot to have a chance to win this year. If he starts in front, the race is his.
LEWIS HAMILTON 5.50 bWIN Lewis got a win so far this year, and had other chances, but didn`t managed to get another one. Still more races this year, he will have plenty of chances to win.
FERNANDO ALONSO 6.00 Stanjames Good improvement for Alonso since the start of the season, with 2 second places in the last 3 races. He also wants to win a race this season, maybe this time it`s his turn.
MARK WEBBER 7.00 bWIN He`s fast on the track, but not as fast as Vettel. He is unhappy with the team too, he needs a win to prove that he can win too.
JENSON BUTTON 10.00 bWIN He will race at home and he has great expectations from this race. Maybe with some luck he can get on the podium.
