High winds cause major damage to Silverstone

High winds over the weekend caused major damage to Silverstone's pit and paddock building, with photos showing large parts of The Wing missing its roof.

The new building opened in 2011 as part of Silverstone's bid to retain the British Grand Prix and is now an iconic part of the circuit.

It's not clear whether the damage is limited to just the roof, but urgent repairs will be required in order to have the building ready for the British GP in early July.

It's likely insurance will cover much of the repairs, but it is a setback for the circuit which has recently undergone a management restructure as it looks to become more financially viable.
