After such an incredible weekend for British sport it is easy to focus on the stars, and deservedly so.
Just like Andy Murray at Wimbledon, Lewis Hamilton made history on Sunday, producing a masterclass to join Nigel Mansell as a four-time British Grand Prix winner.
However, no major sporting success could be achieved without the unseen support of some very dedicated and hard-working volunteers.
In the case of the British Grand Prix at Silverstone, this means over 1,000 volunteer marshals and officials, ranging from incident officers and scrutineers to medical teams and race administration. We believe they are the best in the world, and we owe them all a debt of gratitude.
Every year we hold a random prize draw among the grand prix marshals and we are very pleased to announce that this year’s winner is Martin Rowe, an Incident Officer at Hangar Straight. He wins passes to this year’s Wales Rally GB and tickets to the 2017 British Grand Prix.
May we offer our sincere thanks to all those who gave up their time to deliver another outstanding British Grand Prix. Rob Jones Chief Executive Motor Sports Association Ben Taylor Managing Director International Motor Sports
