Formula One Given Approval For Silverstone Summer Return
UK Government Gives Green Light For Formula One Races At Silverstone.
Silverstone will hold two Formula One races later this summer behind closed doors after the UK government has agreed to the FIA’s proposal, according to reports.
The news follows the approval of back-to-back racing weekends at Austria’s Red Bull Ring at the beginning of July.
The reports state any people involved in the F1 weekends at Silverstone will be exempt from the 14-day self-isolation for international travellers.
“We welcome the government’s efforts to ensure elite sport can continue to operate and their support for our return to racing.
“We will maintain a close dialogue with them in the coming weeks as we prepare to start our season in the first week of July,” said an F1 spokesperson.
10 races have already been called off this season, leaving circuits such as the Red Bull Ring and Silverstone to host back-to-back weekends in order to meet the required amount of races to count the season as a World Championship.
Austria to host races on July 5 and July 12
However, it is planned for Austria to host races on July 5 and July 12, with a third race followed on July 19 in Hungary.
Formula One bosses have been working on plans to include as many of the remaining circuits as possible with the season finale still set to go-ahead in Abu Dhabi in December.
