6:42 am on 1 May 2010

The home of the British Grand Prix, Silverstone, has unveiled a revamped circuit to take it into a new era.

The circuit, which hosted the first Formula One championship race in 1950, is part of a major development that will have cost the British Racing Drivers Club - which owns it - $85 million by next year.

The redevelopment has come in for high praise from several current or former drivers including Mark Webber and Jackie Stewart.
