The Formula 1 is now thinking about further races in Europe, the BBC reported. That would correspond to the previous plans, which made the races in Mugello, Portimao, Imola and at the Nürburgring possible.
(F1 Calendar 2020 Istanbul and Jerez) – The Formula 1 calendar has only 13 races, while Chase Carey aims for 15 to 18 races. What are the options for Formula 1, which saw one event after another disappear from the calendar?
The Formula 1 calendar has been extended since the first edition after the coronavirus. The calendar now also includes the races in Tuscany (Mugello), Russia (Sochi), Eifel (Nürburgring), Portugal (Portimao) and Emilia Romagna (Imola). This means that the calendar is filled until November 1st, so there is still room for other races.
Carey has already announced that Formula 1 will end with races in Bahrain and Abu Dhabi. The question remains whether the event in Bahrain will be held once or twice, which could result in a calendar of 15 to 16 races. However, the gap from November 1st until the end of November can still be filled.
Racefans reports two more options. Formula 1, for example, could return to Jerez in November, where it has raced a Formula 1 race in the past and many a championship has been decided. In addition, the circuit in Instanbul is also an option, which according to many fans is still one of the nicest circuits.
With those two races, Formula 1 could even reach 18 races. However, it still seems quite a challenge, because the increase of corona crashes in Spain will not make it easy to make it hard for a race in Jerez and also Turkey still belongs to an Orange region.
