Damon Hill says that Silverstone are ready to step back into the arena and run the British Grand Prix next year if Donington Park fail to fulfil their contract to take it over from 2010.

Silverstone has a ‘50-50’ shot to keep race, says Hill

While acknowledging the potential threat from Donington Park as a venue for future British Grands Prix, former world champion Damon Hill said yesterday that Silverstone's chances of securing the race when its contact expires next year are no better than 50/50.
