They wouldn't give Shell permission to film that cool Ferrari advert they did last year in London so I doubt they'd be any more willing to put a Grand Prix on.

Besides which Silverstone is one of the best tracks in F1 and I want the British Grand Prix to stay there.

You know what's just outside London?

This.

For reference, a billion I believe would represent the London's mayor's entire yearly budget.

More like £10bn.

I hate the idea of the Olympics coming here in 2012, let alone having the GP here every year. And paying Bernie cash for the privilege.

Maybe I'll start an online petition to stop it. They always work.
