Compare and contrast the two at the same scale...

...and then recall that Silverstone keeps all the support stuff over at Copse in the old paddock (which is bigger than both paddocks at Brands added together, and about three times the area of the Wing paddock), and has the old runways and the Stowe circuit for parking trucks on too, I think you'll see the reason why I say it could never happen.

Fair enough.
