F1 2013 – Martin Whitmarsh not in favour of 21 races

Formula One News » F1 2013 – Martin Whitmarsh not in favour of 21 races

Martin Whitmarsh has declared a 21 race season would be “tough” on teams and announced he is not in favour of a 21 race calendar.

With the possibility of a race in Russia and another in New Jersey during 2014, that would take the calendar to 21 races.

Speaking to ESPN, Whitmarsh said “I don’t know whether there really will be 21, but I’ve heard the stories of a variety of new venues, from Russia to talk of New Jersey again,”

“Well they’re both important territories, aren’t they, but whether all the other dates on the calendar survive, I don’t know. But 21 is a lot of races, that’s for sure.”

“We’ve had 19 this year and 20 last year, and I know it’s only one more but we’ve been saying that since we had about 14 races and most of those were in Europe. It gets quite tough for the team.”
