The next event on the Formula One Championship calendar will be the 2012 Formula One Santander British Grand Prix, which is scheduled for the sixth through the 8th of July. This will be the ninth race of the year, and so far it has been shaping up to be a great season so far. We have a couple of drivers who will be starting in a different grid position than they actually quality for, one five spots back and one ten, because of crashes last week, but it should be a very good race. The next event after this is the Grand Prix of Germany.
