There is an inextricable link between Great Britain and Formula One racing. Not only is the British Grand Prix the oldest race on the calendar, but many of the championship’s 10 teams are based there. Amongst these is the Brackley base of Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport which, along with Brixworth-based Mercedes AMG HPP, lays just a few miles away. Thus, the British Grand Prix forms one of two home races for the squad alongside Germany.
- Circuit is full of Motorsport history
