The circuit is situated near the Northamptonshire villages of Towcester, Silverstone, and Whittlebury, England. It has a FIA Grade 1 license, which means that the circuit meets the highest standard of safety, infrastructure, layout, and other facilities.
Silverstone Circuit is a dedicated racing track that evolved from an airfield. This airfield served as a Royal Air Force (RAF) station and was called RAF Silverstone. Like multiple other airfields, it has been abandoned after the end of World War 2 and found use as a racing track.
The circuit has a capacity of 160,000 people, and it gets filled up every year to host the oldest Grand Prix in Formula One - the British Grand Prix. The race is a home Grand Prix to multiple drivers on the Grid - Lewis Hamilton, Lando Norris, George Russell, and Alex Albon.
Multiple teams have their bases in the area close to the circuit. One of them is Red Bull Racing, with its base in Milton Keynes - less than 40 minutes by car. However, the closest is Aston Martin base (former Racing Point), which is located less than one kilometer (0.6 miles) from the circuit.
Silverstone is one of the oldest and most popular circuits in the world at the same time. Besides Formula One, multiple other racing events take place here, such as the MotoGP British Grand Prix, FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC), British Touring Car Championship (BTCC), British Superbike Championship (BSB), and many others.
Currently, the circuit has four main modifications. The Arena Grand Prix Circuit layout is where Formula One is being raced. The other three include the International Circuit (2.979 km - 1.851 miles), the Motorcycle Circuit (5.900 km - 3.666 miles), and the  National Circuit (2.639 km - 1.640 miles).
