Great Britain regulates exception to quarantine measure for Formula 1

Whereas the British Grand Prix seemed to be in jeopardy for a long time because of the travel restrictions in England, Formula 1 still got a preferential position from the British government as they are allowed to continue the race.

After the Hungarian Grand Prix, Formula 1 will have a one week rest, after which it will drive two races on the Silverstone circuit. At the moment, the travel restrictions are still in place and people entering Great Britain have to be quarantined for two weeks. This would endanger the Grand Prix, but F1 is receiving some help.

F1 can go to England

On Formula1.com it is now reported that there is an exception made for Formula 1. The staff of the Formula 1 teams, Formula One Management and the FIA are allowed to enter the country without having to quarantine, which means that the British Grand Prix will officially go ahead.

On 19 July, Formula 1 will travel to England and the first race will take place on 2 August. In a statement Formula 1 thanks the British government for their cooperation. ''Thank you for your involvement and the appropriate approach in this matter', is the statement of Formula 1.
