Formula 1 has "no plans" to bring a Grand Prix to east London - despite a fresh concept by a group of environmental experts and creatives.

Dar and LDN Collective, who have worked on the project together, want to transform the Royal Docks into an exciting waterfront destination that would include a racing track complete with ‘floating grandstands’ for a crowd of over 95,000 people.

The planned track would be a different length and layout to the one used by electric motor racing series Formula E, which will be returning to the Royal Docks for the third year running in July.

Max Farrell, CEO of the LDN Collective previously said their vision for the Royal Docks could be "what the Olympics did for Stratford and the Lea Valley" and that it would be a huge boost for London.

He said: “We have designed a track that meets all of [Formula 1's] requirements and regulations.

“We have discussed the proposals with the Greater London Authority [GLA], who are developing a water strategy and planning framework with Newham Council, which we hope to align with.”

Mr Farrell added: “With or without F1, these proposals are transformational and would be a huge boost to London and the UK globally, as we emerge from the pandemic.”

Dan Horner, director of Urban Design at Dar, said water by the Docklands is “underutilised” but has a huge potential to host floating modules that would create a "new family-orientated leisure and events destination".

He said: “Although floating buildings, structures and spaces are a relatively new concept within the UK, there is a growing number of precedents, notably in Europe, which have been highly successful and cost-effective."

The group’s plans also include new restaurants, libraries, boutique hotels and pocket parks that would be along the embankment edge, and claim the British Grand Prix in Silverstone would benefit from a second event in London.

However, F1 has since shut down the plans and said: “There are no plans for a Docklands Grand Prix. We have a long-standing relationship with Silverstone.”

A spokesperson for Newham Council said it won’t be commenting on the plans.

The GLA has been approached for comment.
