Silverstone organisers defend decision to allow 140,000 fans at F1 British GP

The race at Silverstone on Sunday will host more than 140,000 spectators, with approximately 350,000 expected over the three days of the meeting, and strict Covid protocols are in place as part of its role in the government’s Event Research Programme (ERP). Silverstone’s managing director, Stuart Pringle, has worked closely with the directorate of public health in Northamptonshire, who report to Public Health England and the medical bodies that inform them, and believes the processes that were followed have been rigorous. “The masks were not a Silverstone decision, that is the view of the directorate of public health Northamptonshire and Public Health England,” he said.
