Answer for F1 Grand Prix

Answered By: 
The Mayor

F1 is a fantastic event that I am sure any city would feel privileged to host. Following the success of the London 2012 Games I am positive that London would do a spectacular job of holding a London Grand Prix. However, at present this remains merely an idea and it is impossible to say what the impact might be without detailed planning and research.
