Bernie Ecclestone

Well that seems to be Bernie Ecclestone’s plan at the moment. He said that the number of races in the f1 racing calendar could easily be increased to about 20 in a season. He further fueled the prospects of an Indian Formula One Grand Prix.

“We could easily imagine that the number of Grand Prix in a season could be 20. That could be Mexico, India and Russia. South Korea is another candidate,” said Ecclestone.

Talking about the f1 night race, he said it would be exciting and appropriate for European fans as far as the f1 race timings go.

“That would be ideal for Asia, since it would be the right time difference to be broadcast in Europe. It would also be very spectacular, it all depends of course on the circuit. “

On the Formula One French Grand Prix’s future, he was not very sympathetic :-

“Formula One is very international, it’s a world championship, not a championship linked to certain countries. When the standards are not respected we have to go elsewhere,” he said.
