Answered By: 
The Mayor

As I have said before, I believe that it should be possible to organise a race in London in the future and that a London Grand Prix could bring huge economic benefits to our city. I have asked my officials to explore what the options might be with F1. These discussions are in an early stage and work needs to be done to assess both the feasibility and benefits of a race in London.
