Brundle: Races could come 'thick and fast, triple-headers, quadruple-headers'

Brundle: Races could come 'thick and fast, triple-headers, quadruple-headers'

Former Formula 1 driver turned commentator Martin Brundle "could easily see 16 or 17 races'"if teams agree to run on three or four consecutive weekends.

Formula 1 bosses, team principals and the FIA held a conference call on Thursday to discuss potential options for how to proceed with the season, but Brundle offered his own opinion on how the season could work.

"So the championship, for what it's worth, needs a minimum of eight races, maximum of 22 this year, which is clearly not going to happen," Brundle told Sky Sports News.

"I think if we do get up and running I could easily see 16 or 17 races, just coming thick and fast, triple-headers, quadruple-headers, maybe one week off and then go again."

Brundle also suggested that Formula 1 could shorten the weekend format from three days to two in order to retain as many of the races as possible.

"They'll shorten the weekend, maybe, just to two days rather than three," continued Brundle.

"The thought for great circuits like Silverstone, running a race but having no crowd, they just can't do that, they'll go broke frankly. So we need to wait until we can get a crowd and do this properly.

"But I do think there's a chance we could have a representative Formula 1 season and remember, back in Sir Stirling Moss' day and [Juan Manuel] Fangio's day, there were seven or eight in a championship.

"In my day, with Michael Schumacher in it and [Ayrton] Senna, we had 15 or 16 races and nobody feels any less impressed by those great champions of those days for having fewer races in a season."
