SILVER LINING Silverstone chiefs vow to stage ‘record-breaking’ British GP next year as 350,000 fans miss out due to coronavirus

SILVERSTONE chiefs are planning a “record-breaking” bumper British Grand Prix for 2021 to make up for this year’s behind-closed-doors race. However, next year, Silverstone MD Stuart Pringle wants to recapture the atmosphere from 1992 – when Nigel Mansell won the world title – a period dubbed “Mansell Mania” when British F1 fans flocked to the circuit. He said: “I am certain we will all feel the lack of fans but we want to focus on next year. “We don’t know what the world will be like but I sincerely hope we are operating as normal by July next year. McLaren ace Norris says the British GP without fans will not feel “as special” as his F1 debut last year. He said: “It is going to feel weird going to the home GP and not having any of the fans there. When you don’t have the fans it doesn’t mean as much, it’s not as cool, it’s not as special. Hopefully, next year we can get the fans back and they can enjoy the racing again.
