Track Revolution? The plans of the F1-makers
The Formula 1 bosses are rethinking the race calendar: so far, 40 track operators have reported that they want to be integrated. Retort courses will soon be history. According to top-class marketing director Sean Bratches,”40 people have applied to Liberty Media since the beginning of the year to be included in the racing calendar,” said the US-American to the specialist portal motorsport. com, which this season includes a calendar of 20 races, and the 21st edition of the 2018 World Championship will be held in Paris. The limit set in the Concord Agreement is currently 25 Grand Prix, a mark that Liberty Media intends to achieve in the medium term, and which has been the subject of criticism from numerous drivers and team leaders with regard to the human resources and complicated logistics. We want to maximize the possibilities”For the near future, the focus will be on city races. The US company Liberty Media never made a secret of its desire to establish at least one city grand prix in the United States in the calendar in addition to the race in Austin/Texas. 2018 will be the last year of Germany’s Grand Prix at Hockenheim for the time being. It is still unclear whether Formula 1 has a future in Germany.
