Circuit Length: 5.902km (3.667 miles)
The British Grand Prix is often the wettest with English weather living up to its reputation as unpredictable at best. The longest circuit on the calendar, Silverstone features ten right-hand and eight left-hand corners, so asymmetric rear slicks with harder rubber on the right shoulders are developed for this circuit. The circuit has a high average speed, while also being prone to cool weather, so the tyres at Silverstone have to strike the best balance between warm-up performance and outright grip, while also delivering good braking and concerning stability. These factors make Silverstone one of the more demanding circuits and the numerous overtaking opportunities afforded by the quick speed changes push the riders and their machines to the limits.
