The season is due to start on July 5th in Austria and discussions are underway to host another Grand Prix at the Spielberg circuit a week later.
This could be followed by two races in the United Kingdom on July 19th and 26th.
All these races would be held behind closed doors. “One of the biggest logistical challenges will be to test everyone in order to allow access to the paddock,” said Ross Brawn in a podcast on the Formula One website.
“As soon as we can do that, I think it will be very tempting to keep everyone in that environment.
“It’s a kind of biosphere that we want to create for other races. Austria is a perfect fit with an airport close to the circuit. It’s not close to a big city and it has all the necessary infrastructure.
“There will be no trucks and the circuit will have all its catering facilities. We can accommodate everyone in this environment.
Brawn assures “that no risk will be taken and everything will be done properly”
“It’s a huge logistical challenge. Organising a Grand Prix in the current circumstances is new for us. We are working to provide a safe environment for the drivers, engineers, technicians and everyone involved in the race.”
On Friday, the organisers of the Hungarian Grand Prix announced that the race will be held behind closed doors. The Hungarian Grand Prix is scheduled for August 2nd, just after Silverstone in the UK.
The Belgian Grand Prix is scheduled for August 30th at Spa-Francorchamps and the organisers are awaiting the green light from the authorities to hold it behind closed doors.
