The Formula 1 British GP 2020 will also be held behind closed doors and Silverstone are asking fans not to travel to the area during both August events.

In fact, Silverstone has agreed on two events at the historic circuit as part of the calendar shuffle. These are this weekend’s British Grand Prix to be followed by the 70th Anniversary Grand Prix the following week.

 

 

Judging from the first three races, it seems there already is a comfortable position up front for Mercedes. Also, Red Bull and Ferrari seem nowhere near last year’s positions just behind the British constructors.
