British Grand Prix Silverstone: Interesting history
The British Grand Prix is a race featuring in the calendar of the Formula One World Championship. Currently it is held at the Silverstone Circuit, which is of course located very close to the village of Silverstone. This year, 2018, saw the British Grand Prix hosted at Silverstone for the 52nd time.
Remarkably, the British race is currently the oldest in the Formula One calendar. That’s because the first round of the inaugural World Championship season in 1950 was hosted at Silverstone. In fact, the British and Italian Grands Prix are the only two races that have been staged during every season of Formula One so far, which means there is a lot of history to explore at Silverstone.
The very first World Championship Formula One race held at Silverstone was won by Giuseppe Farina, a brilliant Alfa Romeo driver who went on to win every F1 race until the 1951 British Grand Prix; this Grand Prix was won by Argentine Jose Froilan Gonzalez.
3 drivers are tied for the most British Grand Prix Silverstone wins, and only one is still competing: Jim Clark, Alain Prost and Lewis Hamilton. All 3 of these drivers have won the Formula One Silverstone race 5 times, with Lewis Hamilton the only of the 3 who might have the chance of winning it again. Jim Clark won 4 of his races consecutively, whereas Prost’s were more scattered over his years as a competitor. Lewis Hamilton also won the Grand Prix 4 years in a row, from 2014’s to 2017’s.
