The race was the tenth round of the 2019 Formula One World Championship. It marked seventy-fourth running of the British Grand Prix, the seventieth time that the race has been run as a World Championship event and the fifty-fourth time that the World Championship event has been held at the Silverstone Circuit. Lewis Hamilton won the race for a record sixth time.

Background[edit]

Formally called the "Formula 1 Rolex British Grand Prix 2019", this was a Formula One Grand Prix event and the tenth round of the 2019 Formula One World Championship.[1] The event took place over the weekend of 12-14 July 2019 at the Silverstone motor racing circuit in Northamptonshire.[1] The circuit has a lap length of 5.891 km (3.660 miles) and, prior to the race, a lap record time of 1 minute 30.621 seconds, set by Lewis Hamilton during the 2017 British Grand Prix.[2] The race length is set as 306.198 km (190.263 miles), which is 52 laps of the circuit.[2] With the first British Grand Prix having been held in 1926 and the second in 1927 and then there having been one held each year since 1948,[3] with each since 1950 being world championship events,[3] the 2019 event was the 74th time that the British Grand Prix has been held and the 70th time it has been a World Championship event.

Championship standings before the race[edit]

Heading into the race Lewis Hamilton had a 31 point advantage over team mate Valtteri Bottas in the Drivers' Championship. In the Constructors' Championship Mercedes held a 135 point advantage over Ferrari.[4]

Entrants[edit]

The drivers and teams entered were the same as those on the season entry list with no additional stand-in drivers for either the race or practice.[5]

Practice[edit]

The first practice session ended with Pierre Gasly fastest for Red Bull almost half a second ahead of second placed Valtteri Bottas who was a further 0.4 seonds ahead of Gasly's teammate Max Verstappen. The only major incidents were Romain Grosjean crashing his car on the pit exit and Kimi Räikkönen's Alfa Romeo stopping on the Wellington straight, the latter on which brought out a red flag. The drivers all struggled with track grip levels throughout the session due to the track having been recently resurfaced and although there was some brief rain it had little impact on the running in the session.[6]
