Formula One has been in the news a lot this week, with the race of champions taking place in Miami last weekend where a number of F1 drivers were taking part and on Monday we had the news that Liberty Media have completed their takeover of the sport and that Bernie Ecclestone has left his role and been replaced by Chase Carey.

Carey has confirmed that he would like to see a Formula One race on the streets of London with the capital city the home of the headquarters of the sport.

It has been in the works for a number of years with the sport doing a demonstration with a number of teams involved in the event. There have also been a number of other demonstrations on the streets of London.

In 2015, Race Week London took part prior to the British Grand Prix weekend and it was a great success giving Formula One fans a taste of what having a Grand Prix on the streets of London would look and sound like.

Mr Carey is also in talks with ‘destination cities’ such as Las Vegas, Miami and New York City.

It would appear that with Mr Carey and Liberty Media at the helm of the sport, a Grand Prix on the streets of London could become a reality sooner rather than later.
