Decision on British Formula One Grand Prix to be made by end of month

A decision about whether to call-off July's British Formula One Grand Prix will be made by the end of the month with organisers saying they need to begin preparations before May.

The first eight races of the season have already been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Organisers of the event at Silverstone say they're in "close dialogue" with Formula One about whether it can go ahead as scheduled.

"Silverstone and Formula 1 remain in close dialogue regarding the ongoing situation and are assessing the feasibility of holding the British Grand Prix on 17-19 July," they announced in a 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 and, 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."

Formula One chairman Chase Carey said last week that they hope to begin a 15-18 race season this summer with the Canadian GP on June 14th likely to be the opening race of the campaign.
