However, the race was given a huge boost on Thursday after Silverstone revealed the race would remain on the calendar at the famous circuit for at least 10 more years with a new deal extending up to and including 2034.
It was an unusual announcement made at the well established home of the British Grand Prix, having hosted the race every year since 1987, and now the circuit to continue revamping facilities around the track.
The 2024 British Grand Prix will take place on Sunday July 7 with the race at Silverstone getting underway at 3pm, with qualifying taking place 24 hours earlier on the Saturday.
Given the success of Lewis Hamilton in recent years, the grand prix at Silverstone has long been a sought-after event to attend with attendances across the weekend regularly well into the hundreds of thousands.
It comes at a price though with the cheapest race ticket charged at £219. A four-day weekend pass starting from Thursday arrivals and stretching across practice qualifying and the race start at £359.
The cheapest ticket is a £99 entry for Friday practice, rising to £129 for a day-pass for Saturday qualifying.
