Formula One in Discussions Over UK Quarantine Rule

Formula One officials are thought to be in talks with the UK government over new quarantine measures.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced that any visitor to the UK, would have to self isolate for 14 days.

Yet the full details of the decision are yet to be announced.

The ruling will cause many problems for the British Grand Prix, if it was to go ahead.

The Grand Prix was scheduled to be ran on 19 July.

A second race at Silverstone has been discussed for a week later, to be ran under a different name.

Seven out of the ten Formula One teams are based in Britain.

The Austrian Grand Prix is due to be ran on 3-5 July.

In theory, this could allow enough time with respect to the quarantine measures for the British Grand Prix to go ahead.
