Terms between F1 and the home of the British GP agreed for grands prix on July 26 and August 2; F1 planning to start season with Austria double-header in July
F1 is also within close discussion with the UK government about its logistical and safety plans. The government has said this week that elite sporting events behind-closed-doors could take place from June.
The sport plans to start the season with a similar double header at the Red Bull Ring in Austria on July 5 and July 12.
It will be the first time in history that venues have staged two grands prix in the same season.
Formula 1 is putting in place extensive and rigorous measures to allow the behind-closed-doors events and racing to be resumed safely, with F1's motorsports chief Ross Brawn recently telling Sky Sports that it would in effect create a "bubble of isolation" around the sport and travelling personnel.
The season would then break for a week before heading to Silverstone for the first of two events.
