Silverstone, England - The British Grand Prix looks almost certain to be saved this week as both sides in the long-running saga work frantically towards securing its survival.
An announcement is expected ahead of Sunday’s race that a new multi-year contract has been struck between Silverstone and Liberty Media, the owner of Formula One, saving the world championship’s oldest and best-attended venue.
David Richards, chairman of the British governing body, the Motor Sports Association, told Sportsmail on Saturday: "I’m very positive there will be a successful conclusion before the grand prix.
"The fundamentals, the financial side, have been agreed. It is just the final details that need to be signed off, and I am confident they will be."
