Decision on British GP 2020 by end of April

Silverstone and Formula 1 have announced a deadline of the end of April to decide whether the British Grand Prix scheduled for 17-19 July will go ahead, or join the first eight F1 races of the season to be called off.


Statement:  "We fully appreciate that other UK sporting events in July have taken decisions regarding their events, but it is important to highlight that their logistics and sporting arrangements differ from Silverstone's.


"Therefore, our timeline gives us until the end of April to make a final decision. The safety of our fans, colleagues and the F1 community will be our priority and we will continue to engage with the appropriate authorities."


It is expected that the forthcoming Canadian Grand Prix scheduled for 14 June will also be postponed along with the French GP on 28 June, with Austria on 5 July and the British GP on 19 July also under threat.
