Formula 1 'highly interested' in adding Chinese street race to calendar
Formula 1 commercial chief Sean Bratches has confirmed that the sport’s organisers would be “highly interested” in adding another Chinese Grand Prix to a future calendar in addition to the race in Shanghai, with the new event being a street race.
The Chinese GP has been part of the current F1 calendar for 15 years since the construction of the purpose-built Shanghai International Circuit, but with Liberty Media looking to add more races going forward, the sport could be heading to two destinations in China.
