Some of the European circuits due to host races without spectators on Formula One’s initial 2020 calendar have been given one-year contract extensions to compensate for lost revenues.
Organisers of the Hungarian, Italian and Belgian Grands Prix, which stand to lose out on tickets sales, revealed new deals.
Formula One, whose season has yet to start due to the COVID-19
pandemic, announced an eight-round schedule this week with the season
starting in Austria on July 5.
Austria’s Red Bull Ring and Britain’s Silverstone will both have two
races each with Hungary, Spain, Belgium and Italy hosting the remainder.
