Formula 1 and Silverstone have agreed a deal for two grands prix to be held at the British track this season.
Originally there had been problems agreeing the track fees to be paid for the two behind-closed-door races to be held during the summer this year however these have now been resolved.
However, a new threat to the races has emerged in the UK government’s plans to impose a two-week quarantine for all international arrivals.
Silverstone managing director Stuart Pringle told BBC Sport: “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.
“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.”
