F1 British Grand Prix 2022 winner-min

This Sunday, July 3, 2022 takes place the British Grand Prix. On the occasion of this tenth round of the world championship, Carlos Sainz, who took pole position, and the 19 other drivers meet at Silverstone.

The British Grand Prix at Silverstone remains an unprecedented event in a Formula 1 season. Host of the first race in the history of the world championship in 1950 , Silverstone is a circuit historically anchored to the premier class. If the layout has sometimes had to give way to Brand Hatch or Aintree, fans still have a special attachment to Silverstone. 5.891 km long and comprising 18 bends, the British layout requires single-seaters to have a great ability to swallow the fast and intimidating curves of Maggots, Becketts and Chapel.
