Planners hope cars will be able to reach 300 km/h along one of those, the Knippelsbro Bridge.



(From @NateSaundersESPNF1 on Twitter)

The report states the €40 million plan is being backed by Danish business magnate Lars Seier Christensen (a former personal sponsor of Romain Grosjean), and former MP Helge Sander and has been provisionally signed off by new Formula One owners Liberty Media. It also reports F1 circuit designer Herman Tilke visited the city in March of this year to oversee the planned route.

Despite the apparent sign-off by the FIA and Liberty, Danish media also says the circuit still needs support of politicians on a local level to go ahead, with elections taking place later this year which will likely to have a big say in whether the race goes ahead.

looked againd now to see that specific route. and i dont see how it would be possible. where would the pit lane be? there is not space for it. as well as the paddock

the only way to make this real, is to make a new circuit, in a not urban area, to be the centerpiece of a new neighbourhood (like Korea wanted, but never did)

Its one of 'the circuits' where F1 belongs. And no, Silverstone is not boring. Ask the drivers. Hamilton, Vettel, Verstappen, to them it is one of there favorits.
So how wrong can you be.

Silverstone is one of the last circuits where an F1 car can truly show what it is capable of. Stand outside Copse, or on the outside of the Becketts complex, and the cornering speeds are incredible. It may not be a gin palace circuit like Abu Dhabi, but it's a proper drivers' track.

Donington Park has no interest in running the British Grand Prix, even if Silverstone decides to abandon hosting Formula 1.

When asked if Donington would consider trying to host the British GP if Silverstone did pull out, current circuit managing director Christopher Tate said: "Absolutely not.

"We've set a very clear target of keeping the trace of the circuit as it is.

"We've no interest in hosting modern, high-speed single-seaters because we'd have to completely change Donington Park."

Formula One owners Liberty Media are confident that the British Grand Prix will remain on the race calendar beyond 2019 despite Silverstone's owners activating a break clause in their contract.

Sean Bratches, F1 managing director for commercial operations, is confident that the race has a long-term future at the Northamptonshire circuit.

"We are very optimistic about the future with our friends here at Silverstone," he told CNN's The Circuit.

"We have three great Grand Prixs under contract left -- 2017, '18, and '19 -- and a lot can transpire between now and the end of '19."

"We're fans first. We're committed long term to a British Grand Prix. We're standing on the home, on a terra firma and the home of motorsport, the home of Formula One, and I am very confident that there is going to be a British Grand Prix for many, many years in this wonderful country."

It's not like Silverstone is going away for sure, they just need to negotiate a new deal and will be back in business.

If they ever start in Germany again they should start, or do a time trial, at the nürburgring nordschleife. That would be a cool and though circuit to do that with all the hight differences.

Old and gone cyclist Gerrie Knetemann won his worldtitle on the Nordschleiffe. In 1978.
