[Watch] The London F1 Grand Prix race

Santander has articulated the fizzing excitement surrounding the capital with the release of a spectacular concept film featuring Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton. The London Grand Prix is presented as an ultra-high fidelity short CGI film founded on a detailed feasibility study undertaken by expert project architects Populous. Bernie Ecclestone, CEO of Formula One group, said: “The idea of an F1 street-race in London is something I have had for many years. It would be magnificent. A couple of years ago we came very close to an agreement with the City of Westminster and The Mayor's office but we ran into the small problem of cost. A few years back over half a million people turned-up to watch F1 cars parading through the streets of the capital. The public’s appetite for a London Grand Prix is huge as I am sure it is with the F1 teams and sponsors.”
