The boss of Silverstone hoping F1 can find a way to navigate quarantine situation

The circuit is hoping to host races in July and August

Silverstone managing director Stuart Pringle says talks with the Government about a quarantine rules exemption will “take a few weeks” but he remains optimistic about the outcome.

Pringle is hoping Silverstone will be able to stage back-to-back races at the circuit on two weekends in July or August.

But, in order to do so, there would need to be an exemption to Government rules on a strict quarantine designed to limit imported cases of Covid-19.

Sports personnel travelling from abroad will be required to isolate for 14 days on arrival from June 8 onwards, unless any exemptions are granted.
