The 2002 British Grand Prix was a Formula One motor race held at the Silverstone Circuit in Northamptonshire, England on July 7, 2002. The race, contested over 60 laps, was the tenth round of the 2002 Formula One season. The race was won by Ferrari driver, Michael Schumacher. His team-mate, Rubens Barrichello, finished in second place ahead of the polesitter and Williams driver, Juan Pablo Montoya. The three drivers, as well as gaining the top three qualifying places, were the only three to finish on the lead lap.
As a consequence of the race, Schumacher lengenthed his lead in the Drivers' standings to 54 points, meaning that if he scored an eighth win of the year at the following round, the Template:F1 GP, he would win the title with six races remaining. Barrichello moved himself up into second in the standings, on 32 points, one more than Montoya, and two more than Ralf Schumacher.
- The podium ceremony was delayed due to serial prankster Karl Power appearing on the top step of the podium before Michael Schumacher arrived to take the top step.
