Beginning as an airfield in WWII, Silverstone found a new lease of life as a circuit after the war. Over the years the track has evolved to the 5.891km layout we see today, with new additions like the Silverstone Wing paying a nod to the circuit’s long and glorious past. As the lights go out, it’s a relatively short 296 meters before the cars hurtle flat-out into Abbey. There are plenty of iconic corners to keep drivers on their toes, from the right-hand hairpin of Luffield, to the Maggots, Becketts, Chapel section and the final Club complex.
You can race on Silverstone Circuit, and all the original 2020 season circuits in F1 2020, available now for Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
