Location: Silverstone, Great Britain
Formula One Betting Online: Pick up a lager and some fish and chips, because the Formula 1 series is heading across the pond to jolly old England for the British Grand Prix. The race starts on Sunday, June 30 at 8:00 PM ET, so on second thought, it may be too early for a lager. Brew some tea, then, and grab a crumpet, because this race is good enough to warrant getting up early on a Sunday. BookMaker's live lines will have you covered on all the high-octane action, as the top drivers in the world descend upon the legendary Silverstone Circuit in Towcester, England.
Silverstone was adopted as the sight of the Grand Prix after World War II allowed the previous tracks to fall into disrepair. Now, it stands as a staple on the Formula 1 circuits, especially for top British drivers like Jenson Button and Mark Webber.
Legendary Brit Jim Clark shares the lead for most British Grand Prix wins of all time with 5, though the fans of England racing likely hating that Clark must share the title with a Frenchman in Alain Prost.
When it comes to current drivers, only Webber and Fernando Alonso stand as multiple winners. With each of them taking home the last three events. Webber comes in as the defending champ, a sight every Brit loves to see. However, with plenty of other talented drivers visiting the land of the Queen, a British back-to-back will be a hard feat. In comparison, Clark won the GP four years in a row back in 60's.
The tradition and prestige of Formula 1 racing is unmatched, and the British Grand Prix is one of the longest standing events on the schedule. Don't miss out on this Formula 1 wagering online. Head to BookMaker's live lines and make your wager.
2013 Santander British Grand Prix Winner - Rosberg wins British Grand Prix
Mercedes' Nico Rosberg claimed victory in a hugely dramatic British Grand Prix overshadowed by four major tyre failures and which witnessed a retirement for Sebastian Vettel which has breathed unexpected new life into the 2013 title battle.
Just where to start in this astonishing race of two halves? Well, probably on lap eight when polesitter Lewis Hamilton's hopes of a second home victory - and the dreams of the packed Silverstone crowd - were dashed when his W04's left-rear tyre spectacularly blew in a firework display of rubber as he came onto the Wellington Straight.
But rather than proving an isolated incident, the next seven laps witnessed repeat failures on the left-rear tyres of first Felipe Massa, and then, most scarily of all at 190mph on the run to Stowe, Jean-Eric Vergne to put the spotlight more forcibly than ever on the safety of Pirelli's rubber amid a season already dominated by tyre complaints and controversy.
While the exact reason for the left-rear failures - the final one of which claimed McLaren's Sergio Perez late on for the second time this weekend - are still to be determined, the FIA have called Pirelli to a meeting of the F1 Sporting Committee on Wednesday, while the rest of Sunday's race was run with the drivers urged by their race engineers to stay away from the circuit's multitude of high-speed kerbs.
2012 British Grand Prix Winner - Patience pays off for British Grand Prix winner Webber
Biding his time to pounce, Mark Webber's patience in chasing down pole-sitter Fernando Alonso paid off four laps from the end of the British Grand Prix on Sunday.
Webber stayed out in front to claim his second victory of the Formula One season for Red Bull and trim Alonso's lead in the championship over him to 13 points.
The victory leaves Webber and Alonso as the only drivers to win more than once in this unpredictable season, with two victories each.
It was the second time in three years that Webber has triumphed at Silverstone. The Australian driver lives nearby and he says staying at home aids his performance.
The conditions also helped, with sunny spells at the central England circuit after two days of rain that caused chaos on and off the track for practice and qualifying.
Webber upstaged world champion teammate Sebastian Vettel, who held off Ferrari's Felipe Massa to finish third.
Fernando Alonso is the 2011 F1 British GP race. This victory came just right for the Ferrari team because they are celebrating the 60th anniversary. On the other hand the defending champion from Red Bull Racing Team, Sebastian Vettel was not able to accomplish the mission to kept the title.
