On Monday morning the British Racing Drivers' Club revealed that the British Grand Prix at Silverstone has been saved for the upcoming 17 years. Former British Formula 1 champion Lewis Hamilton was happy to hear the 'fantastic news'.
"Firstly, it's fantastic news that the British Grand Prix will stay on the calendar for 2010," said Hamilton. "Secondly, it's great that the race will be at Silverstone. The place has an atmosphere that money can't buy, and I have some fantastic memories of the track – winning both races in GP2 in 2006, getting an incredibly emotional and satisfying pole in '07 and winning in the wet in my championship year.
"Most importantly, those achievements have all been underlined by the reaction and support of the Silverstone crowd, which has always been fantastic. British fans are the greatest Formula 1 supporters in the world – and this must be the best Christmas present they could ever ask for.
"I can't wait to come home to the Santander British Grand Prix next year: both Jenson and I will be flying the flag for Britain and doing our best to win the race."
