"It's not such a silly thought. We're not licensed to run the other way, but these are extraordinary times, and I guess that extraordinary decisions are being made."
Those are the words of Silverstone boss Stuart Pringle, who told Sky Sports News earlier this week that the British Grand Prix venue is opening to hosting multiple rounds of the delayed 2020 Formula 1 season - if that helps the mandated rounds of the world championship can take place this year.
But it was the idea of running the 3.66-mile track in reverse that really caught the imagination - "Reverse Silverstone! OMG yessssssssss", tweeted McLaren racer Lando Norris - and led to Pringle's response above.
