What do we know about Silverstone?
- Circuit length: 5.891km
- First championship grand prix: 1950 (hence the 70th anniversary this year...)
- Laps: 52
- Race distance: 306.198km
- Race lap record: 1.27.097 (Max Verstappen, 2020)
- 2020 winner (of British Grand Prix): Lewis Hamilton, Mercedes
- Number of corners: 18
- Overtaking chances: Quite good all-round, really. Probably the best chances are on the Hangar Straight and into Stowe (even around the outside now) towards the end of the lap and in the twisty complex at the start of the lap onto the Wellington Straight. Even Brooklands and Copse offer decent chances if you're brave.
What are the latest odds?
- Lewis Hamilton 1/3
- Valtteri Bottas 7/2
- Max Verstappen 15/2
- Alexander Albon 50/1
- Carlos Sainz 66/1
- Lando Norris 66/1
What is our prediction?
Sigh. Hamilton, Bottas, Verstappen.
