Silverstone drifting into trouble again

The British Grand Prix is under threat again. Formula 1 boss Bernie Ecclestone told The Guardian newspaper that the "World Championship would carry on even if there were no British Grand Prix. We'd be sad to lose it, but if it came off the calendar there are lots of other countries waiting to take its place."

Ecclestone is unhappy because the rebuilding of the circuit has been postponed because the Octagon Motorsport company cannot afford to do the work. Ecclestone says that he always doubted that Octagon could do the necessary work for the money it had suggested and he is not happy now that it looks like the work will not be done.
