However, following successful negotiations between Formula 1, the British Racing Drivers' Club (BRDC) and Silverstone Circuit, a new contract through to 2024 was signed on Tuesday in London.
But the race at the Northamptonshire circuit will begin at 2:10pm - just after the start of the men's singles final at Wimbledon and midway through the final at Lord's, where England may be attempting to win a first ever Cricket World Cup.
"It's not going to be an easy weekend for us so it's really just about being diligent, making sure we've left no stone unturned".
"As drivers, we always try to be as close as the rules limit us, so I will definitely change a little bit and adjust a little bit my aggression". Red Bull were a bit off but now they have a new engine I expect them to be better.

"I've been really privileged to come here and have some spectacular races", he added.
"It's definitely been the best start to a season I've had and it's insane to think where we are now", Hamilton said.
Neither should be a factor in Sunday's British Grand Prix, and Hamilton is hoping that it means he'll be back at the front before his home crowd. I think it's important to put that stuff out of your head and focus on the job at hand.
"It might be a more hard weekend but we'll give it everything and hopefully [get] a good result at the end of the weekend". 'The sheer magnitude of it and how many people come here - it's a special weekend. There is excitement and adrenaline going and there are pressures.
"This weekend it will be closer". I feel like there have been other incidents in the past, which have been less big in a way, and have been penalised.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
