Silverstone wants to try to allow fans back in during the 2021 Grand Prix, scheduled for July 18. This is according to a letter sent to sufferers of the major political parties.

The letter has been signed by several organisations including the Football Association, Premier League and England and Wales Cricket Board. In it, they write that they want to work closely with the events research programme to explore ways in which fans can return to the circuit.

“The return of fans will provide a huge boost to millions who enjoy a day out to a sporting event with their friends and family and make a major contribution to the economy”, the letter reads, reported by Motorsportweek. “It is right that every possible action is considered to achieve this outcome as soon as possible, but only while an unrestricted return is considered unsafe for fans, race staff and the general public.”

Vaccination is moving very quickly in England, leading Prime Minister Boris Johnson to announce relaxations earlier. That would be good news for Formula 1, as most people will already have been vaccinated by then. Silverstone also wants to use testing and vaccination passports to ensure safety.
