2019 British GP Key Stats

Silverstone is the home of British motorsport, and has just extended its F1 contract for another five years.

Track Stats:

53rd GP at Silverstone and 70th British GP

5.891km long lap, third longest on the calendar, behind Spa and Baku

52 lap race

306.332km total race distance

18 corners

19 wins from pole position (36.54%)

34 wins from the front row (65.38%)

30 different drivers have won the race at Silverstone

Driver/Team Stats:

Ferrari have the record number of wins at Silverstone with 13

Alain Prost and Lewis Hamilton are tied for wins at the track with five

A Hamilton win would be his 80th in F1, and a record sixth British GP win

199th GP for the Mercedes team (including the races from the 50s)

Silly Stats:

A can of the near non-existent energy drink Rich Energy is 134mm tall and 53mm wide, meaning you could cover Silverstone with 31,103,484 cans of it (which is definitely more than they’ve sold).

You would also be able to stack 224 cans of Rich Energy in a tower to reach the top of the highest tip of the Silverstone Wing (which is probably also more than they’ve actually sold)

As it’s Wimbledon as well as the British GP this week here are a few more silly stats. It would take 118,020,000 delicious strawberries to cover the Silverstone track surface. Those strawberries would weigh 1,416,240kg and cost at least £404,640.
