Formula 1 British Grand Prix 2010

Saturday 10th & Sunday 11th July 2010

Having undergone a multi-million pound refurbishment earlier in the year, Silverstone was set to stage its biggest Formula 1 British Grand Prix to date in 2010. As one of the oldest circuits remaining on the Formula 1 calendar, Silverstone holds a special significance with Formula 1 drivers and fans alike. The 2010 season had seen current world champion Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton battling it out for the lead in the driver's championship, with the Red Bull's of Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber hot on their tails.

The McLaren team had dominated the early stages of the season but we're now in a car development race with the Red Bull team who had recently recorded a succession of wins of their own. The majority of the huge number of fans that flock to Silverstone over the British Grand Prix weekend will be hoping to witness a British victory on home soil.

Hospitalityfinder was delighted to welcome guests across the race weekend to enjoy the pulsating racing action on track and the five star corporate hospitality alongside it.

Saturday saw the doors of our Paddock Suite Boxes open for a continental breakfast served both inside the boxes as well as out in the sunshine of the trackside balcony. The Paddock Suites provide the perfect spot from which to enjoy the full racing hospitality day.

Located inside the track on the start/finish straight, the balcony terrace provides fantastic panoramic viewing of the starting grid and the final corner and with the pit lane directly in front of the balcony, guests are a matter of feet away from the cars as they decelerate on their entry to the pits.

The circuit for Silverstone was different this year with the newly developed Arena section being incorporated into the existing circuit.

Qualifying Day saw Red Bull seal a one-two on the grid for the British Grand Prix as Sebastian Vettel just beat Mark Webber to pole position. A happy Vettel paraded his car past the Paddock Suite Boxes amid rapturous applause from the hospitality guests, with Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button doing likewise back in 4th and 14th respectively.

On Race Day, clients in the Copse Trackside Hospitality Restaurant were greeted by the hostesses with a champagne breakfast to get the day's hospitality underway. Silverstone has a fantastic atmosphere with over 300,000 fans expected throughout the weekend, but on race day a galaxy of stars flock to the circuit to enjoy watching the finest race drivers ply their trade in the most advanced racing cars ever made.

Guests made full use of the complimentary bar open throughout the day in the contemporary décor of the hospitality suite, as they discussed the chances of a home victory in 2010. Having been seated for an exquisite luncheon, clients then had the perfect platform to view all the action from, with panoramic views from their prime trackside location of the cars hurtling into the first corner from the starting grid and meandering through the next succession of corners.

Following the traditional hype and anticipation in the grandstands, the F1 teams and drivers were finally on the starting grid, ready for the start of the 2010 Santander British Grand Prix at Silverstone.

When the lights went out, the Red Bulls were side by side going into Copse corner, but with second placed man Mark Webber on the inside line on the 180mph bend, he managed to close the door in teammate Vettel's face to take the lead of the Grand Prix.

Guests on the balcony of the Copse Restaurant had the perfect view as all 24 cars piled into the first sequence of corners 3 or 4 abreast, with the top three cars all challenging for the lead in the opening phase of the race.

Home favourite Lewis Hamilton was right on the two Red Bull's tails heading into Copse corner and made contact with Vettel's right rear, forcing him off the track and giving him with a puncture that resulted in him languishing at the back of the field.

Hamilton managed to stay within touching distance of Webber for the first few laps but the Australian's outright pace was too much for the young Brit to handle, and he opened up the gap with a succession of fastest laps.

Robert Kubica muscled his way up to third place having started back in sixth, but couldn't keep pace with the leading two and began to hold up the likes of Rosberg, Alonso, Barrichello, Schumacher, Button and Kobayashi in the train of cars behind him.

Jenson Button carved his way through much of the field to the delight of the Silverstone faithful, as he moved up from 14th to 4th after deciding to stay out longer on his initial set of race tyres.

It was a bad day at the office for Ferrari's Fernando Alonso as he struggled for pace against the front runners and was handed a controversial drive-through penalty for a seemingly innocuous incident which was described by BBC's Martin Brundle and David Coulthard as “extremely harsh”.

The chequered flag fell at Silverstone to hand Mark Webber a well deserved win at the British Grand Prix in 2010. Lewis Hamilton finished not far back in second followed by Nico Rosberg in third and Jenson Button rounding out the top 4.

The driver's cruised past, receiving the plaudits of the fans in the Copse Hospitality and guiding their cars down the pit lane, eventually parking in Park Fermé with the winner celebrating right in front of the Paddock Suite Boxes.

The spectacular action on the track was clear for all to see; from seasoned Grand Prix fans to Formula 1 first timers, Silverstone was yet again the stage for one of the most exciting Grand Prix races on the F1 calendar.

After the race the podium celebrations began, and with the gripping action on track over for another year, guests could savour the entertainment in their exclusive facility well into the evening.

Hospitalityfinder are delighted to offer Official Hospitality for the British Grand Prix at Silverstone, providing customers with the perfect opportunity to entertain clients at one of the best events on the sporting calendar.
