The Silverstone circuit
Formula One Betting Online: The Silverstone circuit is one of the longest in use in Formula One! And a mixture of high and low-speed turns with some long straights and a smooth surface that generates high levels of grip. Overtaking is not easy. The race has finally received a 5 year deal on December 9th 2004. The traffic situation has improved a lot in recent years. Park & Ride or Parking near the track provide a good flow of traffic. The most glamourous way of transport remains the Helicopter though.
The British Grand Prix is a race in the calendar of the FIA Formula One World Championship. It is currently held at the Silverstone Circuit near the village of Silverstone in Northamptonshire.
Grand Prix motor racing was first established in Britain by Henry Segrave at the Brooklands course in 1926 after his winning of the French Grand Prix in 1923 and the following year at the Spanish Grand Prix which raised interest in the sport. The first ever British Grand Prix was won by the French team of Louis Wagner and Robert Senechal driving a Delage 155B.
Silverstone has hosted the race regularly since the start of the F1 championship in 1950 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.
During the 2003 British Grand Prix, Neil Horan, an Irish ex-priest, ran onto the track at the Hangar Straight, waving religious banners. He was immediately tackled by race officials and removed from the premises.
A dispute between Silverstone's owners, the British Racing Drivers' Club (BRDC), and the Formula One authorities in 2003 over the funding of necessary improvements to the track's facilities led to doubts over the future of the race.
In October 2004 the British Grand Prix was left off the preliminary race schedule for 2005 because the BRDC refused to pay the race fee demanded by Bernie Ecclestone. However, after months of negotiation between the BRDC, Ecclestone and the Formula One constructors, an deal was made for the Grand Prix to be held at Silverstone until 2009.
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.
