circuit-infographic-britainSituated on a flat, windswept ex-airfield in the British midlands, Silverstone has temperamental maritime weather despite its prime position on the Summer calendar.
Another of the great old-school circuits, the track features long straights, fast corners and grass and gravel run offs to test the drivers abilities to the full.

Last year, Raikkonen kicked off a huge accident on the first lap, ending up facing oncoming traffic and leading to a one hour delay after a several car pile up. Rosberg led but car issues forced retirement, Hamilton went on to pick up the win in front of the manic home crowd.
