Silverstone is one of the fastest tracks in F1 24. It does have a fair few slower corners, predominantly in the first half of the lap, with the second half of the lap being incredibly high-speed.

The 10 to 14 corner sequence of Maggotts, Becketts and Chapel tests your car’s high-speed performance, responsiveness and stability. The slower turns, such as Vale and Luffield, rely on great traction and slow speed rotation.

I think this is one of the best tracks in this year’s F1 24 game, as it provides such a variety of corner types and some great overtaking opportunities. In this track guide, I will break down a Silverstone lap. I’ll highlight the ideal braking zones and racing line and include some tips on how to improve your lap time.

Turn 1

Silverstone track turn 1

Starting a lap of Silverstone, the first corner is incredibly fast. There is no need to brake, instead, position your car on the left of the track. Just after the 100 meter board, start to turn in towards the apex.

Position your car incredibly aggressively over the inside apex. The orange sausage kerbs aren’t large enough to affect your stability too much, so take as much kerb as you can without cutting the corner.

Silverstone Turn 1 Racing Line

You should be full throttle all the way through the first and second corners. After the turn one apex, you can run your car right out wide to the left of the track which lets you follow the curve of turn two into the next corner sequence.

Turn 3

Braking PointGearMinimum speed
75 metres3120 km/h
Silverstone track turns 3, 4, 5

Turn three starts the slow infield section of track. Its a slow right hander and is one of the slower corners at Silverstone. Aim your car at the left kerb on the approach and look for the start of the kerb.

Just as the kerb disappears out of view on the left, start to brake and slowly turn in towards the apex at the same time. By the time you reach the 50 meter board, you should be positioned over the left kerb and braking at 100%.

At this point, trail off the brake pedal and start to turn more in towards the corner apex. The trick at turn three is not to apply too much steering input. Instead, open the corner and try to carry more speed into the apex than you would think.

Shift down to third gear, and at the apex, you should be completely off the brake pedal. Maintain smooth steering as you accelerate through the corner and open up your steering angle while accelerating towards the left of the circuit.

Turns 4 & 5

25 metres4100 km/h
Silverstone track turns 3, 4, 5

As soon as you have traction, steer your car pretty aggressively towards the right of the track ahead of turn 4. Before you reach the right hand edge, throw your car into the left hander.

At the same time as you start turning, lift off the throttle and apply a small amount of braking input. It’s very easy to lock your inside left wheel here, so be gentle on the brake pedal. You really don’t need much force to slow your car.

Shift down to second gear before reaching the apex and roll your car through the corner. You can accelerate early while short shifting up to third gear. Try to open your steering to straighten your car before accelerating too hard. This is one of the trickiest parts of the track for traction.

Use all of the outside kerb to straighten your car, and accelerate hard through turn 5. You can take as much inside kerb as you need and there is no need to lift. Hit the early DRS activation while straightening your car and continue to accelerate down the long straight.

Turns 6, 7 & 8

Braking PointGearMinimum speed
30 metres4165 km/h
Silverstone track turns 6, 7, 8

As you approach turn 6, stay in the middle of the track to avoid a nasty bump on the right of the circuit. Then as you approach the 100 meter board drift right to widen the approach. This is a really tricky corner to get right.

Look for the 50 meter board. As you pass it, dab the brake and turn into the corner. You’ll want to maintain around 40-50% brake input as you slow your car, shifting down to fifth and then fourth.

Turn 6 has a late apex which can be seen by the two orange kerbs. Aim for these, and try to clip them as you roll off the brake pedal and onto the throttle. You can be aggressive and accelerate through this corner towards turn 7.

I like to use the start of the inside piece of grass as a reference of when to turn into turn 7. As it disappears off the right of the screen, lift off the throttle and turn in aiming to hit the inside kerb.

Silverstone Turn 6 Inside Apex

You won’t need any brake input until you touch the kerb, then apply a small amount to help rotate the car, shifting down to third gear. Your car will naturally run away from the kerb which is ideal. Ensure you don’t run too wide as you can lose a lot of lap time running off line.

Pick up the throttle early as you continue through the corner and pull your car back in towards the inside kerb once again as you approach the end of the corner.

    You can apply more and more throttle, the further you progress around the corner. Straighten your steering as early as you can and use the left hand exit kerb to widen the track.

    Turn 9

    Braking PointGearMinimum speed
    N/A7285 km/h
    Silverstone track turn 9

    Turn 8 is a full-speed kink right ahead of the now infamous turn 9 of Copse. This is where Lewis and Max came together, and it isn’t really an overtaking spot unless you have a great run out of Luffield.

    On the approach, position your car over the left-hand entry kerb. Right at the 50-meter brake marker, turn in towards the apex. In time trial, this corner is flat, but in a race, you may need a slight lift.

    Use all of the inside kerb, just avoiding the grass while accelerating at 100%. There is a lot of exit kerb on the left, and you can use all of it to maintain a high minimum speed. During a race, really try to carry as much speed as possible through here, as this large kerb and runoff is a real safety net in case you overcook it.

    Turns 10-14

    Braking PointGearMinimum speed

    Silverstone track turns 10-14

    Now we have the incredibly fast esses which are one of the most enjoyable parts of this lap. You can carry incredible speeds through here, and turns 10 and 11 don’t challenge your car as you can be full throttle through them.

    Start this sequence with your car just right of the center of the track. Try to straight line turn 10, using a lot of the inside kerb, but avoiding the red sausage kerb. As soon as you’re in turn 10, switch focus to 11.

    Use smooth steering inputs as you drive over the inside apex kerb of turn 11. This time, you can hit the larger sausage kerbs without any real consequence.

    Try to follow the curve right ahead of turn 12. As you pass over the white track markings, start to turn left. This is the first corner where you’ll need to downshift, and in a race, you’ll need a slight lift and even a small dab on the brakes.

    Once again, try to ride high over the kerb, driving over the orange kerbs to straighten your line and reduce steering input. You can carry so much speed through this sequence so really push yourself.

    Just before the left-hand kerb disappears, start to rotate your car into the slowest corner in this sequence, and turn 13. As you throw your car right, dab the brakes slightly while lifting on the throttle and downshift to sixth gear on the approach.

    Try to turn earlier than you think to get a good exit. Again, carry a lot of speed here while maintaining your throttle input at around 75% through the whole corner.

    There is a lot of room on the left for you to push the width of the track. The important thing is to start accelerating at 100% throttle as early as you can, using as much track as needed.

    The DRS activation is right on the apex of turn 14. Hit that and accelerate towards Stowe. This is a great overtaking opportunity, probably the best on the track so really focus on maximising your exit out of Chapel.

    Turn 15

    Braking PointGearMinimum speed
    256235 km/h
    Silverstone track turn 15

    Turn 15, Stowe, is incredibly fast, and you can carry so much speed through it. You can take multiple lines through here and hang it round the outside if you are making an overtake.

    Use as much of the track width as possible on the entry and look for the 50-meter board. As you reach it, start to turn in before applying any brake. Just as you get off the outside kerb, apply a small amount of brake input and shift down to sixth gear.

    Roll off the brakes early and accelerate towards the apex. Try not to use much inside kerb as stability is crucial here, but follow it through the curve of the corner, while increasing your throttle.

    Point your car towards the left hand exit kerb to open up your steering and use as much as you need to maximise your speed. Then, point your car to the right hand side ahead of turn 16.

    Turns 16-18

    Braking PointGearMinimum speed
    N/A3115 km/h
    Silverstone track turns 16-18

    The final corner sequence is a slow one and tests your rear traction. I tend to use the start of the right hand kerb as my braking reference. Hit the brakes hard as you reach it, braking in a straight line at 100% pressure.

    Use the outside kerb as a guide, just as it starts to end, trail off the brakes and turn in towards the apex. Shift right down to third gear as you rotate through the corner.

    Avoid the inside sausage kerb at all costs, but use as much of the black and white kerb as you feel confident using. You can get on the throttle surprisingly early, just after the apex, to accelerate towards turn 17.

    Silverstone Final Chicane Turn in point

    Lift off the throttle as you turn quickly right, again, missing that large inside kerb. You won’t need any braking through this second part of the chicane, instead, carry speed and maintain some throttle input.

    Accelerate hard through turn 17, using all of the outside kerb. You can short shift here if you are struggling for traction. Try and accelerate at 100% throttle out of this corner and into turn 18.

    The final corner is a flat right hander that tests your accuracy. Once again, miss the larger inside kerb but use the flat kerb as much as needed, and accelerate hard towards the line to end the lap.

    Silverstone is an incredibly enjoyable circuit that really tests your bravery and minimum corner speeds. You can carry a lot more speed than you initially think through many of the corners.
