Ecclestone said he was adamant a British race would remain on the F1 calendar after the collapse of Donington?s bid.

?This will ensure the British Grand Prix is included on the Formula 1 calendar for many years to come, which is something I've always wanted,? he said.

?The team at Silverstone already know how to organise a good event and now everyone can look forward to next summer at Silverstone.?

While Silverstone has previously been criticised for its sub-standard facilities, the long term deal will allow track operators to complete an overhaul and invest in its future.

Silverstone managing director Richard Phillips said: ?We've always had the belief the British Grand Prix was an important cornerstone of Formula 1 but, with Bernie, you're never quite sure. At the end of the day, though, you have to have a British Grand Prix.?
