The 1996 British Grand Prix was a Formula One race held on July 14, 1996 at Silverstone. Jacques Villeneuve was the winner. After making a slow start from pole position, Damon Hill retired after a wheelnut problem caused him to spin off the circuit while he was trying to pass Mika Häkkinen. Mika Häkkinen scored his first podium since his near-fatal crash at Adelaide at the end of the 1995 season. Rubens Barrichello's fourth place equalled his best of the season, and came after he had been involved in late collisions while racing for fourth place at the circuit in the previous two years. For the third consecutive race, Ferrari drivers Michael Schumacher and Eddie Irvine were both forced to retire with technical issues in the first six laps - Schumacher with hydraulic problems and Irvine with an engine fadeout.
