The new 2020 Formula 1 calendar features two back-to-back races at Silverstone.

The Coronavirus pandemic meant that the British Grand Prix looked in doubt for a while, but special authorisation relating to elite sports from the government there, means that there will be two races.

The first takes place on 2 August, the second on 9 August at the iconic English track, the “home of motorsport.”

The first ever F1 race was actually held at Silverstone circuit on 13 May 1950 and was won by Italy’s Nino Farina in an Alfa Romeo. From that day on, over the 70 years of the Formula 1 world championship, a total of 108 drivers have won at least one Grand Prix, while 33 of them have taken the world championship title.

Because of the current virus pandemic, all celebratory events originally on the programme have now been cancelled. However, there can be no better way to celebrate the anniversary than with this 70th Anniversary Grand Prix at the Silverstone circuit, a unique way of acknowledging the long and glorious history of Grand Prix racing.

However, one condition is that these races have to be held behind closed doors without spectators in attendance, a rule which actually applies to all rounds held in Europe this year.
