After last week’s Austrian good news Chase Carey, head of Liberty Media confirmed in an official statement what was said before. Carey’s statement also included a possible schedule for this year’s season.
The head of the racing circus finally dispelled the fans’ doubts about postponing this season:
Our goal is to boost the season in July, August and September all across Europe. The opening race will be in Austria at its original time. After that, at the end of September, in October and November we would have races in Eurasia, Asia and America and the year would end in Bahrain and Abu Dhabi.
Carey affirmed that their revised calendar draft will be available soon. He also added that the first races will surely take place behind closed gates, but they will probably be able to hold 15 races:
“Unfortunately there won’t be any spectators in the first races but I am confident that over time we will be able to open our gates to the fans. We still have a number of problems we have to deal with; we plan to implement the health protocols at a high level everywhere and that is a major logistical challenge for us. Security is the most important thing, so we want to eliminate all risk factors and problem factors.
All of our plans will be flexible, so some things in the schedule might change in the meantime, but we are doing everything we can to get our fans back on the stands so we can enjoy Formula 1 again, together as a community.” – the F1 leader closed his remarks.
