Formula One chief Bernie Ecclestone has insisted that the prospect of a London Grand Prix is still a real one.
Ecclestone is keen to see a London Grand Prix on the calendar
The future of the British Grand Prix at Silverstone was secured in a five-year-deal earlier this week.
But Ecclestone said there is still the possibility of both the British Grand Prix and the London GP being run.
"If that was to happen it would have to be an additional race but I would be delighted if we could get everything together for a London race," he said.
Ecclestone is currently in talks with London Mayor Ken Livingstone about the prospect of a race in the capital.
Earlier this year, about 500,000 people saw eight F1 cars drive on a course laid out between Regent Street and Piccadilly Circus.
The British Grand Prix had been under threat until Thursday when Silverstone's owners and F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone finally signed a five-year contract.
