Seven Times World Drivers Champion Lewis Hamilton said on Thursday that Formula One could be moving too fast with the decision on allowing the crowd in his home circuit for the British Grand Prix 2021 next month.
F1 announced earlier that many fans could attend the July 16-18 British Grand Prix 2021at Silverstone, with some 140k fans on race day.
This would be the biggest crowd on a sporting event since the Outbreak of Corona Virus which triggered a national lockdown since March Last Year.
The last race held in this circuit was in 2019 with a crowd of 351k on Practice and Qualifying. And a crowd of 141k was recorded on thr race day.
Mercedes Driver Lewis Hamilton said,” I’m kind of split, I can’t tell you how excited I am to see the people and the British Crowd, because it is the best crowd of the whole year. Obviously I watch the news so I hear about the covid-19 cases growing up massively in UK so on that side I am worried about the people, naturally.”
