The planets in our solar system all orbit (revolve) around the sun on a plane called the ecliptic plane but each of their individual orbits has a different perimeter ranging from small (which would be the closest to the sun) to big (which would be further away from the sun).

Since Mercury has the smallest perimeter of orbit, it is the closest planet to the sun and is thus more drawn by the suns gravitational force, both its small perimeter and strong gravitational pull make it revolve around the sun faster, and the bigger the planets orbital perimeter is the further away from the sun it is and the slower its orbit is.
