Wolff reveals: ”Two races in the Middle East will soon be announced”
The Formula 1 calendar has already taken its first form with eight races in Europe, but it is not finished yet. It is expected that another seven to nine races will be added to this calendar, but the question is which one?
”It’s good that we have a solid base with the European races already on the calendar. I believe and hope that we have two more races at the end of the year in the Middle East and that they will be announced soon. We also need to see how the situation evolves in all countries, because it continues to evolve everywhere,” said Toto Wolff to Motorsport-total.com.
Mercedes on to the world title
According to Wolff, at least one more race in Bahrain and Abu Dhabi would be added to the calendar, as was done earlier. Bahrain would even consider organizing two more races, but Wolff clearly speaks of two races in this interview.
”The new calendar does provide a challenge for the teams. The preparation time towards the first race is very short and with a small calendar, the pressure on the first race is even greater. Reliability will be very important this season, but I believe we have the fastest and best package to win the world title”, the Austrian concludes confidently.
