Two Formula One grands prix will be staged at Silverstone this summer, subject to Government approval.

The managing director of the Northamptonshire circuit, Stuart Pringle, released a statement on Twitter saying an agreement in principle had been reached with Formula One to hold two races, immediately after the season begins in Austria.

“I am delighted to confirm that Silverstone and Formula 1 have reached an agreement in principle to host two races behind closed doors this summer,” Pringle said.

“However these races will be subject to Government approval, as our priority is the safety of all involved and strict compliance with Covid-19 regulations.

“I would like to thank all our fans who have been so supportive throughout this and to assure them we are determined to do all we can to help Formula 1 put on a show this summer.”

The races are due to be held at the circuit on 17-19 July, and will be behind closed doors in all likelihood.

The first ten races of the F1 season have been called off due to the outbreak, with the revised season set to start in Austria before coming to the UK.
