Over the weekend, it was announced that the Formula 1 2020 calendar would kick off in July at Spielberg, Austria. Now, we’ve received official word that a grand total of eight (8) races are in the books. Signed-off. Confirmed. On its goddamn way. In other words… we’re back, baby.
“In the past weeks we have been working tirelessly with all our partners, the FIA and the teams to create a revised opening 2020 calendar allowing us to restart racing in the safest possible way,” says Chase Carey, Formula 1 Chairman & CEO.
“While we currently expect the season to commence without fans at our races we hope that over the coming months the situation will allow us to welcome them back once it is safe to do – but we know the return of Formula 1 will be a welcome boost to sports fans around the world.”
