Dubbed the 'Home of British Motorsport', Silverstone had the honour of hosting the inaugural F1 race back in 1950 and remains one of the sport's most popular venues, with huge crowds descending on this otherwise quiet corner of the British countryside each year. HISTORY Back to where it all began, Silverstone hosted the very first Formula 1 World Championship back in 1950 and has been a mainstay on the F1 calendar ever since. One of the four races to still be featured, Silverstone alternated its British Grand Prix mantle with Aintree and Brands Hatch before becoming the sole host of the race from 1987. Major layout changes in 1991 and then 2010 lengthened and updated the circuit, though it remains remarkably faithful to its ethos as a fast and challenging venue.
