Copse Corner

As well as the hurly-burly of the first corner on lap one, Copse provides one of the most spectacular sights on the Formula One calendar, with the field blasting through the right-hander at high speed. Then watch as they disappear into the distance, jinking left then right through Maggots.

Hangar Straight

The fastest part of Silverstone. See the cars rocket past at nearly 200 mph with fans lining the banking just a few yards away. With the roar of the engines still ringing in your ears, look down the hill for the right-hand bend of Stowe.

The complex which ends a lap of Silverstone may be the slowest part of the track but it is where most of the action takes place. Four relatively low-speed corners give drivers a chance to choose different lines and attempt an overtaking move.
