In addition to a race at Monza, a race at Mugello has also been confirmed.
Nurburgring returns to the F1 calendar 2020 with Portimao and Imola. The Formula 1 calendar for 2020 is still not completely final, which is complicated by the corona pandemic. For the time being, we are still in Europe and it seems that the European calendar will become a bit longer. One of the circuits that is now mentioned is the Nürburgring.
RaceFans report that they have been informed that the Nürburgring belongs to the next series of circuits that will be added to the revised calendar for 2020. A representative of the circuit would have confirmed to the site that they have had talks with Formula 1 about a return of the circuit.
After the Grand Prix in Russia, the race should take place at the Nürburgring, followed by races in Portugal at Portimao and concluding with Imola in Italy. How the calendar will look afterwards is still uncertain. Racing in North and South America was planned, but the chances for that now seem to decrease.
By the way, the choice for the Nürburgring is remarkable, because Hockenheim has been in the news many times as an alternative circuit on the adjusted calendar. Since that circuit is not mentioned now, it seems – provided it is correct – that the choice has fallen on the circuit in the Green Hell
MALAYSIA COULD HOST A 2020 F1 RACE
Malaysia could make its return to the Formula 1 calendar this year if the Chinese Grand Prix is officially cancelled, according to a report.
The Sepang International Circuit last hosted an F1 race in 2017, ending its 19-season stay on the world championship schedule.
The unpredictable weather and flowing nature of the track made the event a favourite among F1 fans.
F1 is currently working to flesh out the 2020 race schedule amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, with rumours circulating that China will not be placed on the revised schedule.
According to Auto Motor und Sport, Vietnam is hopeful that it will still get to host its very first grand prix this year, after postponing the event earlier in 2020 due to the outbreak of COVID-19.
Travelling to Asia for just a single race would not make sense logistically, leaving F1 to seek another track to race at either before or after Hanoi.
Sepang, which is well known to the teams, could be an option. F1 currently has 10 races confirmed this year, with the first three occurring in Austria and Hungary earlier this month.
F1 has already negotiated a race deal with Mugello, which was not part of the original 2020 F1 calendar confirmed last year, meaning arrangements with alternative tracks is plausible.
THREE SILVERSTONE RACES IF BARCELONA IS CALLED OFF
The report also outlined that F1 could race three times at Silverstone if the sport is forced to steer away from Barcelona, as COVID-19 cases have taken a sharp rise in recent days.
The next triple-header event, which will get underway from July 31 to August 2, will see two races at Silverstone before a trip south for the Spanish Grand Prix in Barcelona.
However, some doubt has been placed over Spain’s race due to the coronavirus, with the country reporting 1,000+ cases every day since July 18. But F1 reportedly has a plan B if the Barcelona race is called off, which would see the sport remain in Great Britain for a third race.
The first race at Silverstone will be named the traditional British Grand Prix, however the second round will be labelled the 70th Anniversary Grand Prix, as F1 celebrates an existence milestone.
