Rosberg proposes a calendar of double-header races
Former Formula 1 world champion Nico Rosberg would like to see double-header races throughout the 2020 season to ensure a decent number of events make up the calendar.
With most European countries extending their bans on large gatherings of people until the end of August, Rosberg has suggested if the calendar is only made up of a small number of grands prix then each venue runs two races.
"I would love to see eight double-headers at the very least so we get 16 races because statistically, of course, the fewer races you have the more likely it is an outsider is going to be world champion," Rosberg told Reuters.
"If the favourite like Lewis Hamilton has a stroke of bad luck that could really switch things round, which is not great because for a championship you want to take away luck as much as possible.
"You want to have it as wide and as big as possible."
