Palmer's father could be British GP saviour

Jolyon Palmer's father has emerged as a potential saviour for the British grand prix.

F1 business journalist Christian Sylt has reported that the future of the historic race is in doubt, now writing in the Telegraph that the current owner, the British Racing Drivers' Club, is "distancing itself" from the track amid losses.

"We are definitely interested in making an offer for Silverstone and have a lot of confidence in our ability to bring a great deal of stability to it and a vision for the future," said Jonathan Palmer, whose son Jolyon races for Renault.

Dr Palmer is also a former F1 driver, whose company MotorSport Vision owns four British racing tracks.
