F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone has insisted that plans for a grand prix to be staged in London are "no joke".

Plans for a race on a 5.1km circuit around some of the capital's most famous sights - including Buckingham Palace, Big Ben and Trafalgar Square - were unveiled last month. Although the proposal was widely regarded as being a publicity stunt, and indeed unfeasible given the level of disruption it would cause, Ecclestone has revealed to The Guardian that plans are progressing.

"We are getting on with it. It is no joke, 100% completely no joke," he said.

According to the newspaper, 'It is unknown whether Ecclestone is working on a variant of the route in Santander's plans or one at another location in London since a bid to host a grand prix on the Olympic Park has already come to light.'
