The 1992 British Grand Prix was a Formula One motor race held at Silverstone on July 12, 1992. It was the ninth round of the 1992 Formula One season. The Williams-Renault team's drivers Nigel Mansell and Riccardo Patrese finished first and second, their final one-two of the season.

After Mansell won his home Grand Prix, the British spectators invaded the race track to congratulate their hero. Mansell's car was blocked by the crowd, preventing him from driving back to the pits. Eventually Mansell was returned to the pits by track marshalls to attend the podium ceremony.

Future World Champion Damon Hill made his first start, for the Brabham team. Two further future champions (Michael Schumacher and Mika Häkkinen) scored points.

Ayrton Senna retired his McLaren from fourth place due to transmission failure on lap 52. Senna's chance of winning the driver's championship was effectively gone. Coincidentally his car stopped at the same spot where he had run out of fuel in the 1991 British Grand Prix and had been classified fourth.

Gerhard Berger's McLaren had an engine failure in the closing stages of the race and he just managed to finish fifth, right behind Schumacher's Benetton.
