Hamilton vows to fight to keep British GP at Silverstone

"The fundamentals, the financial side, have been agreed".

Only Monza and Monaco have hosted more grands prix than Silverstone, the site of the very first World Championship race in 1950. "Formula One loses this and it loses so much of its essence".

The Mail on Sunday reported that the MPs wanted to "ensure the British Grand Prix is a success".

"To lose the grand prix, and in particular to lose it from Silverstone, would be disastrous for the sport", he said.

While the race at Silverstone attracts 350,000 spectators over the weekend, the staging fee was making the event untenable.

The Northamptonshire circuit activated its break clause past year, amid concerns that its race fee was due to escalate to an unsustainable £26million by 2027.

Lemina has told Southampton of his desire to leave the club after being dropped from the club's pre-season tour squad . The Gabon global is also wanted by Arsenal and Leicester City this summer, according to The Telegraph .

The historical home of Grand Prix racing in the United Kingdom and Liberty Media have yet to agree terms on keeping F1 at Silverstone beyond this year, the last race for which the legendary circuit is contracted to host the event.

There has always been talk of a race in the capital, most recently focussed on the Docklands area to the east of the city, and Pringle said that would be a commercial concern for his circuit.

He said he does not support moves to relocate the grand prix to London.

"You'd need to see Nelson's column and going past Buckingham Palace pretty much", he said of any potential layout.

The championship leader told Sky Sports F1 when asked about Silverstone: "The most fun rollercoaster ride of the year".

Hamilton has won his home race five times, including four in a row between 2014-2017 and stated he still gets the same buzz from racing at Silverstone. Articles appear on euronews.com for a limited time.
