Currently, the struggling team operates from the Manor headquarters in Dinnington, and it has recently acquired Nick Wirth's technical F1 facility at Banbury.

But the plan for a couple of years down the road is for a bespoke Virgin factory under one roof.

A rumour in the British Grand Prix paddock last weekend was that talks took place between Virgin and Silverstone bosses.

Virgin Racing president Graeme Lowdon told The Star on Thursday: "There is no big change in the short term.

"We have got a couple of guys looking at where the best location would be in the long run. On the basis that this will be a new facility, this is not something you necessarily want to rush into.

"They have got to find the right place because it will be a big investment. I don't expect there to be a decision on that too quickly," he added.
