British race track, Silverstone, could host multiple 2020 Grand Prix races in order to help the Championship after it’s postponement.
The F1 bosses are facing tough decisions, like most sports, as to how they are going to fit the races in after the calendar has already lost its first eight races.
Silverstone confirmed on Wednesday that it had until the end of April to make a decision on how the British Grand Prix will be ran.
Once racing can resume, F1 bosses are are exploring multiple ways it can cope with the schedule. An option to run the schedule into next year and an option to hold multiple races at one track is being considered.
Silverstone race track managing director, Stuart Pringle said,
All I’ve done is say to Formula 1 we are willing to work with them in any way, shape or form that they think is in the best interest of the championship. The majority of the teams are within a stone’s throw of the circuit, so operationally, it would be pretty straightforward.
The suggestion that Silverstone could run the second race reversing the track is also being considered, and Stuart Pringle said,
We’re not licensed to run the other way, but these are extraordinary times, and I guess that extraordinary decisions are being made. Nothing’s off the table, but equally, let’s see what the next four weeks look like.
