A Track with a Prestigious History
Silverstone is the oldest Formula 1 track in the world, and the first to host an official Formula 1 Grand Prix. The track came about in 1942 when it was laid as a perimeter road for the RAF Silverstone Airfield. By 1947 it had been turned into a racetrack, and is now one of the most iconic circuits in the world.
The track itself is 5.891km long with 18 turns and a lap record of 1:30.621. The man who set the record was none other than Lewis Hamilton back in 2017. The track is so fast that in 2018 Hamilton compared racing around it to flying a fighter jet. Indeed, it is one of the fastest tracks on the F1 calendar and always provides nail-bighting action from start to finish. Will Hamilton continue his winning streak at Silverstone or will Vettel repeat his 2018 winning performance?
