    This is what the new Europe Calendar for 2020 should look like.
    Formula 1 has now put together a concrete Plan for eight European races to start the 2020 season.
    How fixed is this calendar ?

    1. 5. July Austria confirmed (without Spectators)
    2. 12. July Austria confirmed (without Spectators)
    3. 19. July Hungary
    4. 2. August Great Britain (?)
    5. 9. August Great Britain (?)
    6. 16. August Spain
    7. 30. August Belgium
    8. 6. September Italy

    Austrian Grand Prixs:
    https://sport.orf.at/stories/3063107/

    "The organizer has presented a concept for implementation that is based on the special requirements of the Formula 1 GP and the necessary protective measures against the spread of the corona virus," emphasized Health Minister Rudolf Anschober (Greens). The races are legal, as there is no audience, "not to be regarded as an event, but as a sports facility (...)", so "the teams are allowed to enter the premises to practice their profession - applicable restrictions on persons are therefore no longer applicable", the legal justification stated.

    At the Red Bull Ring, they agreed to hold a second race a week after the Austrian Grand Prix on July 5. The necessary health report stipulates, among other things, that pilots and Formula 1 personnel can be tested before entering Austria. For the first time in F1 history since it was founded in 1950, two races will take place at the same location in one season and, moreover, within a week.

    Except the confirmed Austrian Grand Prix,there is all possible,I think.
    They said "We go through a Full Season.." (I still do not believe in it...)

    We will see after June,when more and more Countries maybe lower their Restrictions...the Grand Prix brings Money and I do not think in 2-3 Months the different Countries in Europe can longer "renounce" this Money....I do not think the FIA/Formula 1 can have this "Luxury" to claiming Money for organizing a Grand Prix this Year (as usual),they can be glad that anyone will host/organize their Grand Prix´s this Year.


    It is also an "Idea" to re-activate Hockenheim for this Year.....:)

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The official F1 2020 Game can now pre-ordered....strange Situation...:(

    Fellow Formula 1 Fans,the Season 2020 is (maybe) about to get concrete.

    After Austria also Great Britain confirms their Grand Prixs.
    If nothing "happens" this is the Calendar for the First Europa Phase:

    Formula 1 Calendar 2020

    05.07. Grand Prix of Austria in Spielberg (without Audience)
    12.07. Grand Prix of Styria in Spielberg (without Audience)
    19.07. Grand Prix of Hungary in Budapest (without Audience)

    02.08. Grand Prix of the 70th Year Anniversary in Silverstone
    09.08. Grand Prix of Great Britain in Silverstone
    16.08. Grand Prix of Spain in Barcelona
    30.08. Grand Prix of Belgium in Spa-Francorchamps
    06.09. Grand Prix of Italy in Monza

    The Number of Employees per Racing Team is to be limited to 80.
    In total,according to the Organizer,a maximum of 2,000 People should belong to the Racing Series in Austria.
    If successful,Spielberg could serve as a template for the following Grand Prix.
    According to a Calendar Draft,the two final Races of the Year are scheduled for December:
    After Bahrain (6 December), Formula One could traditionally end one of its most memorable seasons in Abu Dhabi a Week later.

    "New" Grand Prixs definitely canceled:

    28.06. GP of France
    20.09. GP of Singapore
    11.10. GP of Japan

    In Singapore,as Streetcircuits,which is rather unthinkable in Coronavirus times.
    At the Grand Prix in Suzuka,the Travel Restrictions are the main Reason for the cancellation.

    Also:

    There will be no podium ceremonies in the Formula 1 season starting on July 5 in Spielberg due to the coronavirus safety precautions. The driver parades before the races are also canceled, as Ross Brawn, the sports director of the racing series, announced on Friday.

    Brawn said there might be an idea of the drivers standing in front of their cars on the grid. Instead of the driver parade, there should be individual interviews of the pilots in front of the boxes.

    A few Weeks ago I thinked,it is ok to start on July 5th...

    Today I am 100% sure it is not a good Idea.....
    Our People in Austria (and I think not only our People..) are too stupid to follow simple Recommendations...
    https://orf.at/stories/3171628/

    A renewed increase in coronavirus infections in Austria has recently raised concerns. According to data from the Ministry of Health, around 470 people were sick before the weekend - on Monday there were 600. The virologist Monika Redlberger-Fritz from MedUni Vienna also made an appeal in ZIB2: She warned of the risk of a coronavirus infection too careless to deal with. The population is currently “too carefree” from a virological point of view, which gives the virus the chance to spread.

    To bring "new" People from outside into our Country is not a good idea.....see the Tennis Case...
    It would not be a surprise if the Grand Prix should be canceled at short notice .....

    It will need to be cancelled in the next 24 hours as the teams and drivers will be arriving in Austria tomorrow. It would be pointless to cancel it after they arrive.

    #####################################################################

    Pros 2020:

    - maybe "only" 8 Races - so FULL POWER no Tactics.
    - no Time for "dilly dally" only Racing
    - possibly the best and most exciting Formula 1 Season of all times.

    Cons 2020:

    - very "strange Basic Conditions"
    - except Ferrari,Mercedes and Red Bull all other Teams "fight for their further Existence"
    - ????

    Now Vettel can imagine how Kimi fared when he was deported to Alfa Romeo in 2018 ..

    Vettel had never the Option for Ferrari for 2021:

    Ferrari officially said this to separate Sebastian Vettel

    At the time, Vettel said in Ferrari's press release:

    "My relationship with Scuderia Ferrari ends in 2020. In order to achieve the best possible result in this sport, it is important for all parties to function in perfect harmony. The team and I realized that there is no longer a common desire, to stay together beyond this season. Financial matters have not played a role in this joint decision. So I don't think when it comes to certain decisions and I never will. "

    "What has happened in the past few months has caused many of us to reflect on what our real priorities are in life. You have to use your imagination and adapt to a changed situation with a new approach. I will take the time I need to see what is really important for my future. "

    "Ferrari occupies a special place in Formula 1 and I hope that it will achieve all the success it deserves. I want to support the entire Ferrari family and all the Tifosi around the world for the support they have have thanked me over the years. My immediate goal is to end my long stint with Ferrari in the hope of experiencing even more wonderful moments. "

    Ferrari team boss Mattia Binotto was quoted in the press release as follows:

    "This decision was made jointly by us and Sebastian. It is the decision that both sides consider to be the right one. Knowing what Sebastian is worth as a driver and person, it was not an easy decision. There was no special reason for that has led to this decision, apart from the common and amicable belief that it was time to go our separate ways to achieve our goals. "

    "Sebastian is already part of Ferrari history. His 14 Grand Prix victories make him the third most successful driver for the team. At the same time, he scored the most points for us. In our five years together, he was in the top three of the three times Drivers' World Championship landed and made a significant contribution to the fact that the team was consistently in the top 3 of the designers. "

    "On behalf of everyone at Ferrari, I want to thank Sebastian for the great professionalism and human qualities that he has shown over the five years we have had so many great moments. We have not yet managed to win a World Championship together - which would be his fifth - but we believe we can still get a lot out of this unusual 2020 season. "


    Vettel today,Thursday in Spielberg:

    "I was surprised when I got the call from Mattia [Binotto, Ferrari team principal] and he said that they were not interested in continuing with me," said Vettel at the press conference.


    Vettel also contradicted the version that Ferrari's offer was not good enough: "There was never any discussion. There was never an offer on the table, so there was no sticking point." The May 12 press release said the separation would be mutually agreed.
