Hungary or Germany happy to replace Silverstone races
|Hungary ready and able to replace the two British races|
Hungary and Hockenheim Germany are ready to replace the two Silverstone races on the 2020 Formula 1 calendar now that the UK government have confirmed quarantine regulations that will make the British GP impossible in the short term.
The UK government 14-day quarantine will require visitors and returning residents to give an address where they will self-isolate. Spot checks will then be made, and offenders will reportedly subject to a fine of $1,200.
Only special cases, such as truck drivers, will be exempt. The quarantine restrictions will be reviewed every three weeks.
One team insider told Motorsport.com: "It's all still very much up in the air. The one thing that is very clear is all that teams want to start racing and will do whatever is necessary, including a quadruple header and even being on the road for a couple of months, if that's what it takes. As long as it's safe to do so."
