F1 and Silverstone strike agreement for British Grand Prix double when 2020 season starts

Silverstone and F1 have reached an agreement which will see the British Grand Prix take place twice as part of the curtailed 2020 season when the coronavirus pandemic allows the action to get underway.

The British Racing Drivers’ Club had been in disagreement with F1 over a fee to the track for hosting both events.

A compromise has now been reached though and a deal struck for the venue to host two races when the 2020 season gets up and running.

A new threat to the event has emerged though with the UK government planning to impose a two-week quarantine on all international arrivals.
