The 2015 British Grand Prix (officially the 2015 Formula 1 British Grand Prix)[1] was the 9th round of the 2015 Formula One season. It was held between July 3 and July 5, 2015.


BackgroundEdit

Jolyon Palmer took part in the first practice session.[2]

Medium and hard tyres were used in the Grand Prix.[3]

The Formula One Strategy Group also made agreements to make changes to the exhaust systems in 2016 so the engine noises would be improved.[4]

Force India have also made a couple of updates on their 2015 car,[5] while the rules using more than four power units had been revised, allowing McLaren to use another in the British Grand Prix.[6] One of the changes on Force India's car was a pair of "nostrils" on the nosecone.[7] Ferrari made a revision on their wheelnut system following Sebastian Vettel's slow pit stop in the Austrian Grand Prix,[8] and Marussia had a new livery after recently being sponsored by Flex-Box.[9]
