Tony Purnell: "If we’re going to give the fans what they want, we’ve got to take another step.”
"In a plan said to be spearheaded by former F1 driver Jackie Oliver, the directors wrote to members asking them to vote at a meeting on August 25 on a plan to get Silverstone 'capable of hosting Grands Prix should the opportunity arise'.

"According to reports in Italy's Corriere dello Sport, Felipe Massa may return to the Formula 1 cockpit at the Italian GP at Monza, if his recuperation goes well. This would be seven weeks after the accident in Budapest. The principal delay in Massa's recovery is unlikely to be the injury to the front of his head, nor the concussion, but rather a secondary fracture he suffered at the base of his skull." A seven-week turnaround on a skull fracture – even a hairline one – seems very short. Could be wishful thinking.
