Ross Brawn says it is”frustrating” which Formula 1 and also Silverstone have failed to reach an agreement to save the British Grand Prix.
The circuit’s contract expires after this season’s race and also talks on a brand new deal have stalled.
“we would like to locate an answer with Silverstone,” f 1 managing manager Brawn said. “However we’re diverse within our perspectives of what’s reasonable.
“We are not far apart. It’s frustrating that people can not locate a solution”
Relations between the two parties chilled further in January when Silverstone managing manager Stuart Pringle organized a statement from f 1 race organisers criticising the activity’s current management.

Brawn reported that f 1 was determined to ensure a British Grand Prix remained on the calendar.
He explained:”I don’t think it will be the final British Grand Prix.
And he gave exactly what may possibly be translated as a thinly veiled threat that F1 could look elsewhere when Silverstone was used with the Brands Hatch track in Kent as the host of the race, by making reference.
“Racing in the UK is crucial to us obviously Silverstone was the home of the British Grand Prix for the last few years,” Brawn said in a pre-season news seminar,”but a lot folks can remember it being hauled at Brands Hatch and it did not seem that strange that we had a race in Brands Hatch one year and Silverstone the second.
“We’re determined to create sure we maintain a British Grand Prix, also at Silverstone, but there isn’t any certainty”
F 1’s owners, the usa band Liberty Media, also have believed a race from London, and sources say a street track from the Docklands area, close to where a race in the all electric Formula E set will likely be held next year, is into consideration.
Brawn said:”London would be a different race than the GP. It is just a town race. There is a place for both.
“I don’t believe that it’s feasible to own a London race in the exact middle of London, unfortunately. Impact and the madness it would have would be severe. But there are a lot of areas which might work.
