At the moment there are plans for 2 GPs in Austria on 5 & 12 July,
followed by 2 more at Silverstone on 19 & 26 July.

The UK gov. is intending to introduce 14-day quarantine periods for
passengers arriving by air. If that goes ahead soon, in order to race at
Silverstone on July 17-19, team members would need to be in the UK
before July 3.

"BBC Sport understands F1 bosses have been involved in detailed
discussion with the government at all levels regarding the testing and
isolation plans it will have in place. Those talks will continue this
week as more detail emerges."

I wonder what the 'other' GPs would be called? I've assumed that one GP
at each venue would be the Austrian & British GPs, but the other two
could be designated something different - European GP would be an
obvious possibility. Australia, Monaco & France have been officially
cancelled, but all other scheduled GPs have been postponed.

It's worked well in the colonies (Australia and NZ). Is UK still allowing
anybody from EU/EEA to blow in?

There are flights scheduled to arrive at Heathrow from various
locations, some in Europe, some outside. Whether there are many
passengers I don't know. Quite a lot are carrying cargo rather
than passengers I believe.

Also many passenger planes are carrying Brits being repatriated or the
opposite
