The 1990 British Grand Prix was a Formula One race held at Silverstone on July 15, 1990.

Local hero Nigel Mansell led until his gearbox began to malfunction. He was overtaken (against team orders, and to Mansell's chagrin) by Alain Prost. After retiring from the race Mansell famously threw his gloves into the crowd and announced he would retire from F1 at the end of the season, a decision he later reversed.

Riccardo Patrese became the first driver ever to start 200 Grands Prix. On the day, he retired and his team-mate Thierry Boutsen reached the podium.

Éric Bernard and Aguri Suzuki both scored the best results of their career up to this point.

Ligier needed a point, at least a Top 8 finish to avoid prequalification, but Nicola Larini in the better of them failed to finish better than 10th. He would have needed to finish ahead of Stefano Modena in the Brabham and Jean Alesi in the Tyrrell.
