Former F1 driver and now President of the automobile club of great Britain, Derek Warwick once again gave to understand that in BRDC are determined, and if not signed a new contract on more favorable terms after 2019 Silverstone will leave the calendar of the championship.
Silverstone has activated the termination of the contract after 2019
“The Grand Prix costs us too much. We have a loss and for this reason have used an option to terminate the contract, said Warwick in an interview with the Evening Post. UK is the home of Motorsport. But does this mean that the race must always present in the calendar? Not at all.
Of course, we want the British Grand Prix and Silverstone remain on the F1 calendar. But the organisation of the race must make a profit to be able to invest sufficient money to upgrade the track. Under the current terms of the contract we have no such possibility”.
