Donington Park race trackIn an interview with The Times, FOM Chief Bernie Ecclestone has suggested that in the future, the British Grand Prix could be hosted from Silverstone‘s circuit to Donington Park. “We are discussing the possibility of reaching an agreement with Donington to host the British grand prix,” the Briton was quoted as saying. “We are trying to save the British grand prix and we want it to be staged at a venue which befits an event of its stature. I’ve been in negotiations for a long time and whether or not we’re going to do a deal with Donington or Silverstone, I don’t know.”

The Donington Park race track, which is ready to host this weekend the eighth round of the MotoGP World Championship class 125cc, 250cc and MotoGP, could therefore become the fourth circuit shared by both Formula One and MotoGP following the path of Shanghai (Cina), Sepang (Malaysia) and Istanbul (Turkey).
