Since the very first race in 1950, the British Grand Prix has become a pinnacle of the Formula One calendar. As drivers and teams from around the world converge on the spiritual home of racing, we take the time to look ahead at what 52 laps of racing around the Silverstone circuit is set to hold, and what you should be wearing if you're one of the lucky spectators.

The thrills and spills of F1 mean that nothing is certain, but, like every sport, there's always a favourite. We're tipping Sebastien Vettel to put in a strong performance for Red Bull, he's the king of all driving conditions and has a car with great pace. The race on the 30th of June marks one year on since his team mate, Mark Webber, took the British Grand Prix crow- could it be Vettel's turn?

So is the win in the bag for Vettel? There's no doubting his form, but Englishman Lewis Hamilton is itching to add a second British Grand Prix title to his tally, and his Mercedes has more than enough pace to help him do it- could there be an upset on the cards with Hamilton's home crowd firmly behind him?

Much like the race result, there's no telling what's going to happen with the weather. Early reports state a 24 degree max, with some muggy conditions- perfect for sitting and enjoying an afternoon of racing!

If you're off to sit in the grandstand, then take a look at the outfit we've put together for you. With traditional British styling, some quirky twists and a hint of nostalgia, we've left the British racing green out and taken this look straight out of the text book, and into your wardrobe.
