The oldest race on the Formula 1 calendar


F1 British Grand Prix

The British Grand Prix is the oldest race on the Formula 1 calendar; it was round one of the inaugural world championship in 1950, when George VI and Queen Elizabeth attended at Silverstone.

It has since been won by 16 British drivers, the latest being Lewis Hamilton, both during his title-winning 2008 season when he produced a stunning wet weather performance, and again in 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2019 in front of his home fans.

The British Grand Prix is organised by the Motorsport UK Events Team. The 2019 event takes place on 12-14 July. For more information, visit and
