Verstappen against Liberty's plans for 22 races in 2020
Max Verstappen has warned against the idea of expanding Formula 1's calendar to 22 races as the chances of 2020 featuring a record number of events seems to be on the rise.
The additions of races in Vietnam and Zandvoort have swollen the calendar and, although Liberty Media had said two races would fall by the wayside, the tune has changed recently.
The Hockenheimring's organisers hold little hope of keeping their spot on the schedule, but renewed financial support for Spain and Mexico could see a record number of races next year, with team bosses confirming Liberty has raised the prospect.
However, Verstappen says the added workload could prove an issue for everyone in the sport.
