As Formula 1 ushers in a post-Ecclestone era, new CEO Chase Carey is seeking to reassure British fans by saying that the British GP will remain on the calendar.

The race has been surrounded in uncertainty since Silverstone’s owner, the BRDC admitted that it was considering dropping the promotion of the showcase event for a lack of financial viability.

But the new man in charge of Grand Prix racing’s destiny dispelled the worries of seeing the historic disappear from the F1 calendar.

“We will have a British Grand Prix,” he told BBC Sport.

“The foundation of the sport is western Europe. We want to grow it. There’s a negotiating dynamic that exists, but we want a healthy relationship with our promoters.

“We are going to look at ways of making events bigger and better.”

F1’s new sporting director, Ross Brawn, echoed of course his bosses sentiment.

“A lot of the new circuits are very exciting and they bring their own element to F1,” he said.

“They are in it because they want to be part of that show that includes Monaco, Silverstone, Monza, Hockenheimring and the Nurburgring.

“You have still got to maintain those traditions to have the values in F1.”
