The British Grand Prix is a race that is currently on the F1 calendar. In 2010, the race was held at Silverstone on a modified circuit, and in 2011, the startline was moved. The race has been continuously staged at Silverstone since 1987, and after a debacle with Donington Park, has the rights to stage the British Grand Prix until 2026.

The first British Grand Prix was held in 1926 at Brooklands.
