Lewis Hamilton says British GP is 'most important' as future remains uncertain

02 Juillet, 2017, 23:37 | Author: Marie-Claire Cellier
  • Liberty are keen to keep the British GP which Lewis Hamilton won last year on the calendar as it is one of the most popular races

The future of the race, now held at Silverstone, beyond 2019 is in doubt with British Racing Drivers' Club (BRDC), the circuit's owners, considering whether to activate a break clause in its 17-year contract due to spiralling costs. The Northamptonshire track is now contracted to host the race until 2027 but the deal, signed by Bernie Ecclestone, sees the costs rising by 5 per cent every year.

BRDC chairman John Grant said in January that a decision on whether to activate the break clause would be made in mid-July.

"There has got to be something in Britain. It's the most important race of the year", the Mercedes driver said. "The UK is the home of motorsport and we've got such great and incredible heritage".

Warnings by Silverstone Circuit that it could not/would not afford the rising costs of Formula 1 were heard on a regular basis during the sport's Bernie Ecclestone management era, and it appears that little has changed in that regard under the administration of F1's new owners Liberty Media.

However it is known that F1 CEO Chase Carey is keen to see more street circuits and has a desire to see a race on the streets of London.

Only four circuits in the United Kingdom have staged a grand prix since the world championship began in 1950 at Silverstone.

If the break clause is triggered it will enable Silverstone to renegotiate the contract it signed in 2010 to host the race.

Donnington Park also held the European GP in 1993 alongside the British GP at Silverstone.
