Just a week after the French GP Formula One arrived in the UK, at the high-speed Silverstone circuit.
Similar in demands to France, the back-to-back races have given teams no time to test or introduce new parts, so most teams sported similar packages to what was used in France.
However, Silverstone places slightly different demands on the cars. The track is one of the few circuits still featuring very high speed corners, and these are offset by fewer slow complexes and long straights.
Thus, the teams choose to run a lot of downforce to keep the cars stuck to the track through the fast direction changes.
