https://www.autosport.com/f1/news/149564/uk-quarantine-rules-set-to-dash-silverstone-plans Formula 1 is set to abandon plans to host two races at Silverstone due to the UK's latest quarantine regulations, with Hungary now touted as a replacement venue. The UK government is expected to announce details on Friday of a 14-day travel quarantine, and will require visitors and returning residents to give an address where they will self-isolate. Spot checks will then be made, and offenders will reportedly subject to a fine of £1000 - only special cases, such as truck drivers, will be exempt. The quarantine restrictions will be reviewed every three weeks. F1 had hoped to gain an exemption for travelling personnel, especially as they would be carrying evidence of negative COVID-19 tests as part of the requirement for the season restarting. However despite initial support for the idea from Oliver Dowden, the UK secretary state for digital, culture, media and sport, the definitive government position is that exemptions for sport would lead to complaints from other business and industries. The intention had been to start the season in Austria on 5 and 12 July, followed by races at Silverstone on 26 July and 5 August.
