Resume of the last five races at Silverstone:
2009 - Sebastian Vettel (Germany) Red Bull Vettel ran away with a processional race in a Red Bull one-two, lapping more than a second faster than rivals in the early stages after starting on pole.
2008 - Lewis Hamilton (Britain) McLaren Hamilton won a wet race by an incredible 68.5 seconds, lapping all but the other two drivers on the podium in one of the all-time great performances. BMW-Sauber's Nick Heidfeld was second with Honda's Rubens Barrichello third.
2007 - Kimi Raikkonen (Finland) Ferrari Hamilton started on pole but Raikkonen came out on top thanks to an astute pit stop strategy while the Briton made wrong choices on set-up.
2006 - Fernando Alonso (Spain) Renault Alonso led from start to finish for his fifth win in eight races, third in a row and 14th successive podium finish.
2005 - Juan Pablo Montoya (Colombia) McLaren Montoya's first win with McLaren, the Colombian surging from third on the grid to run side by side with pole-sitter Alonso through the first corner and seize the lead. Raikkonen, who collected a 10-place starting penalty for an engine failure in practice, came from 12th to third and set the fastest lap.
