The owners of Silverstone have hit out at reports it wants to stop hosting the British Formula One Grand Prix.
The British Racing Drivers' Club issued a statement saying recent press reports suggesting talks have been unsuccessful and that the British Grand Prix will definitely be dropped after 2019 are "speculative and wrong"
The statement from John Grant, Chairman of the BRDC, says:
"Our objective is to preserve the British Grand Prix at Silverstone for many years to come but, of course, we can only do this if it makes economic sense. As I have said before, we will be considering over the next six months if we should give notice of our intention to exercise the break clause in our Grand Prix contract at the end of 2019. No decision has been made, or will be made, until mid July. In the meantime, we will be using this period to explore with all interested parties, hopefully in private, various ways in which we might work out a more sustainable proposition".
