The London GP by Santander – 3D track – One lap onboard.

British Grand Prix sponsor Santander has released a special concept film to show how an F1 race on the streets of London could appear. 

With the capital being under the sporting microscope this year thanks to the 2012 Olympic Games, Santander took the opportunity to carry out a feasibility study alongside architects Populous – the company behind the extensions made to Silverstone – into how an F1 race could be run on the city streets. 

With Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button then called upon to provide insight from a drivers point of view, a 5.156km, 14 turn circuit was created that includes a start-finish line on The Mall and that would race past iconic landmarks such as Buckingham Palace, Admirality Arch and Trafalgar Square.
