Silverstone's managing director Richard Phillips believes the circuit deserves to be part of next year's calendar following the success of the British Grand Prix last weekend.
The British race is expected to move to Donington from next year, but Formula 1 commercial boss Bernie Ecclestone suggested over the weekend there was a possibility that Silverstone could still host the event.
Phillips admitted he is hopeful the race will be back at Silverstone in 2010.
"We have the best fans in the world and I sincerely hope to see them back at Silverstone next year," said Phillips. "There have been growing concerns over Donington Park's ability to host the British Grand Prix, in 2010 and beyond, but comments over the weekend from Mr. Ecclestone and the FIA have been reassuring.
"The support from fans over this weekend has undoubtedly had an impact on the way they are viewing the future of the British Grand Prix and Silverstone. We've said all along that Silverstone is ready to step in if Donington's plans fall over, and that remains the case. Silverstone has never looked so good.
"This year's British Grand Prix was phenomenal, one of the best run and well supported events I have ever worked on, and we're hopeful that we'll see everyone back here next year."
He added: "The support for Silverstone and the British Grand Prix over the past three days – from fans, drivers and teams – has been overwhelming. The fans have a real affinity with Silverstone and the drivers love coming here.
"It's a fantastic circuit. You just have to look at the attendance figures over the past three days, and Sebastian Vettel's reaction to winning here, to see that Silverstone is a very special place."
