This season will be shortened due to the coronavirus epidemic. The season starts in stages in Europe.

On Friday, July 3, the new season of Formula 1 started. The calendar for this year had to be seriously revised due to the coronavirus epidemic. The season will begin with two Grand Prix in the Austrian Spielberg. For the first time in the history of royal prizes, teams will immediately have two triple races, which will be a new challenge for both pilots and organizers

By tradition, two free arrivals will take place on Friday, on Saturday the qualification will determine the arrangement on the starting grid, and on Sunday the first race will take place. The first eight grand prix will be held in Europe, and the rest of the calendar is still under consideration. The organizers of the stage have carefully prepared for the start of the season and are committed to providing all security measures.

Despite the tight calendar, the 2020 season promises to be very interesting, as the first three races will take place on the tracks where the Red Bull Racing team is traditionally strong. All this can make Mercedes dominating the last six years for the first time be in the role of catching up.

Recall that due to the postponement of the start of the new season, the FIA ‚Äč‚Äčmanagement decided to postpone the introduction of new requirements for cars in 2022.
