NOTES:
The British Grand Prix at Silverstone Circuit is the eighth round on the 2013 Formula One calendar.

There have been 63 previous F1-sanctioned British GPs. Silverstone will host the event for the 47th time this year. The race has also been held at Aintree (alternating yearly with Silverstone from 1955-62) and at Brands Hatch (alternating with Silverstone from 1963-86).

Jim Clark and Alain Prost have the most British GP wins with five each. One of Clark's victories was scored at Aintree (1962) and another at Brands Hatch (1964). All five of Prost's wins came at Silverstone (1983, '85, '89, '90, '93).

In the past 63 years, this race has been won by the following British drivers: Stirling Moss (1955 and '57), Peter Collins (1958), Jim Clark (1962-65 and '67), Jackie Stewart (1969 and '71), James Hunt (1977), John Watson (1981), Nigel Mansell (1986, '87, '91 and '92), Damon Hill (1994), Johnny Herbert (1995), David Coulthard (1999 and 2000) and Lewis Hamilton (2008).

Ferrari leads all constructors with 16 wins in the British Grand Prix. Three of the team's victories in this race came with Michael Schumacher. Ferrari's first-ever win in F1 occurred in the 1951 British GP, with Jose Froilan Gonzalez taking the checkered flag.

McLaren has the second most victories in the British GP with 14, followed by Williams with 10.

Fernando Alonso from Ferrari and Mark Webber from Red Bull lead all active drivers with two victories each in the British GP. Alonso's first win in this race came in 2006 when he drove for Renault. His other victory was in 2011. Webber has won this event in 2010 and '12.

Jenson Button from McLaren leads all active drivers with 13 starts in the British GP. Button has yet to score a podium finish in this race. His best finish there is fourth, which came in 2004 (driving for BAR at the time) and 2010 (McLaren).

Round 9 in this year's F1 world championship is the July 7 German Grand Prix in Nurburg, Germany. Fernando Alonso is the defending race winner.
