Silverstone Has It All!!
This famous racing track was built back in the time of the Second World War and used as an airfield. After the war there was a need for a truly great racing track and the The Royal Automobile Club in 1948 approached the Air Ministry with the expressed intention of leasing the track from them. In October 1948 the first race the RAC Grand Prix took place and the rest was history in the making.

Silverstone Grand Prix 2016
Hamilton led every lap, taking a 4th Silverstone win - which puts him alongside Nigel Mansell in the record books. He is also the only driver to have won here 3 times in a row, although Jim Clark won 4 in a row during the 1960s when the British Grand Prix alternated between Brands Hatch, Aintree and Silverstone. He is now just one point behind Rosberg in the championship - who was given a 10 second post-race time penalty for receiving illegal coaching over the radio.
