“Even if the world border will start to open after the pandemic coronavirus will need time to organize the competition. The inaugural Grand Prix on the updated calendar is to wait for September.

Not very good racing from September until Christmas, just to keep the championship,” – said Villeneuve.

“What’s the solution? Better to say: “No championship this year will not. We will continue to hold races, and each of them will be a unique event, such as “Indy 500 or the 24 hours of Le Mans.” Each Grand Prix will be similar to the tournament of “Grand slam” and not a piece of history. Plus this will allow the teams to use the rest of the year to prepare for the season-2021″, — quotes Villeneuve F1i.
