British Formula One fans have been told to stay away from Silverstone for the British GP a week on Sunday

The GP attracted a record 351,000 spectators over the four days last year, with over 140,000 fans attending on the race day.

However, circuit chiefs are working with police to prevent fans from sneaking a glimpse of Lewis Hamilton and Co – or even being close enough to hear the cars on track.

Roads blocks will be in place around the circuit while the fencing has been re-enforced, should anyone breach the perimeter.

The message from the organisers is clear: don’t waste your time travelling to the circuit.

Meanwhile, the sport will try to find a away to improve the anti-racism message at the start of the British GP.

Sebastian Vettel has responded to Hamilton’s claims that enough is not being done.

The Ferrari driver, who has taken a knee with Hamilton in all three races this year, said: “What you see is what the situation is.

“Everything was a bit rushed, I think drivers were just about to arrive to do whatever driver decided to do individually, and then in the end it was starting.

“Going forwards it is probably true that we need to talk among ourselves a bit better so hopefully we can sort it out a bit better at the next one.”

Meanwhile, F1 say they are committed to their end racism campaign and foundation to increase diversity, despite Hamilton saying it had slipped “off the agenda”.

A spokesman said: “Ending racism and increasing diversity and inclusion in F1 is a clear priority and something everyone supports.

“We set out our plans for diversity and inclusion last November and have in recent weeks announced additional plans to create a task force to tackle these issues and a foundation with over $1m already donated to create apprenticeships and job opportunities for under represented groups.

“We want to make lasting change and are acting to do this.”
