British Grand Prix – Silverstone – Give us real Formula 1 circuits!

Weeks after a dummy oilcloth marina appeared in Miami, Formula 1 returned to its source at the British Grand Prix at Silverstone. An “old school” circuit, ultra fast (Hamilton’s best lap in the race exceeds 230km/h on average), which offers a multitude of trajectories and as many possibilities of overtaking. A layout at the antipodes of modern playgrounds, which regularly produce insipid races…

“Give us back some real circuits in Formula 1, because that’s the first ingredientexclaimed Gilles Della Posta in the Fous du Volant. In the sequences, there are several trajectory possibilities and when it’s a fight, everyone can choose their way of defending or attacking”, emphasizing the importance of the quality of a layout to promote the spectacle, without the need for artifice. Observation supplemented by St├ęphane Vrignaud: “At Silverstone, there are 4 or 5 overtaking zones whereas on the other circuits, there are one or two maximum. For me it is the synthesis of what F1 can offer best in terms of circuit, and we saw it on Sunday.
