Formula One Owners Plan To Expand Races Beyond 20 A Calendar Year

Formula One Owners Plan To Expand Races Beyond 20 A Calendar Year

The Formula One's commercial managing director Sean Bratches is planning to increase the Formula One calender beyond the 20 races in the future.

The Formula One had lost the Malaysian Grand Prix in 2018 but won't be affected by the loss as German and French Grands Prix will make their returns to the calender in 2018 and this will make it 21 races in the next calender.

"We want to work in partnership with our teams in terms of determining where we go, but our view is that we'd like to go above 21 [races]," he was quoted by Reuters. "And we want to be a little bit more proactive and go on the offensive in terms of the markets where we go."

"As we start identifying an optimal calendar in optimal regions, we can go down and sit with cities and make our case as opposed to what has been a little bit more reactive to bids coming in."

"What we do has to take all that into consideration and we have to work closely with our partners on the team front to find out what the high water mark is and what makes sense for everyone," he said. "We are very interested in doing what's best for fans.

"Next year... there is a weekend where the Wimbledon final and World Cup final take place on the same day. It would be sub-optimal to have the British Grand Prix on that day. It's a tight schedule."

New races have often gone to the highest bidders in recent years, with Russia and Azerbaijan among the venues that have spent big to poses a slot on the calendar. In the future, Bratches wants to start visiting venues that make sense for the sport's image as well as its bank balance.
