F1 TV ARCHIVE: Watch extended highlights of the chaotic and classic 2003 British Grand Prix

Share

Silverstone hosts the 2022 British Grand Prix this weekend – but what better way to get excited than watching this absolute classic from 2003?

Bizarre and brilliant, the 2003 British GP saw Ferrari legend and pole-sitter Rubens Barrichello face off against rising star Kimi Raikkonen. It remains a cracking contest, even without its most infamous moment.

David Coulthard's headrest flying off his car and onto the track was an odd moment, but nothing compared to the protestor who sprinted onto the track to bring out another Safety Car.

The ever-rapid Juan Pablo Montoya also starred, snatching P2 off Raikkonen as the laps ticked down.

There is still one driver from this race still on the F1 grid – Fernando Alonso – but he retired a few laps from the finish with a gearbox issue.
