Due to the situation of the pandemic, the Formula 1 calendar continues to hang by a thread, especially one of the appointments, which is scheduled for May 2 and which should initially take place at the Portimão track , headquarters of the Portuguese GP.

Doubts and alternatives

As we have known for a few days, Formula 1 is working to close the event that will take place on May 2 as soon as possible, either in Portugal or with a double appointment in Bahrain that would alter the current order of the calendar, one of the reasons why they hope to have an answer sooner rather than later.

These were the words of the CEO of Formula 1 about it for Motorsport.com: “There is a date to be confirmed and if it is Portugal, it will be written Portugal. The reason why Portugal is not yet registered is because the situation is not resolved yet. As soon as we can, we will announce something, and it will be in the next few days, not in two months “.

Having said that, Stefano Domenicali acknowledged that the possibility of having a double date again at the Sakhir circuit is real: “I am having meetings this weekend to find out what the situation is and one of the possible plans B, of course, might be a double race in Bahrain. But our priority is to keep the calendar as is.

Confident to complete 23 races

With so many difficulties that Formula 1 is encountering at the beginning of the year, it seems difficult to complete such a long calendar, although confidence is not lacking: “When we imagined the situation, we all thought that this year would be easier and it is not. We are confident that we can complete the number of races on the calendar (2. 3). It is a challenge, but we are hopeful that it really could be done ”.

Finally, Stefano Domenicali wanted to explain that they are prepared for everything: “But as you can imagine, we are agile, flexible and we are prepared with other possibilities. We have plans B, C and D just in case, since the things that are defined today can change tomorrow. That is why we are in contact with the organizers every day ”.
