Russian Grand Prix officials open to F1 double-header

Russian Grand Prix officials open to F1 double-header

Russian Grand Prix promoters Rosgonki have said that the Sochi Autodrom 'is ready' to host a Formula 1 double-header in 2020.

Formula 1 has announced an initial eight-race European calendar, but the remainder of the season remains up in the air.

Grands prix held on street circuits, such as the Azerbaijan and Singapore races, are thought to be in the most danger of cancellation, while a travel ban between Europe and Japan also puts the Suzuka race at risk.

Formula 1 CEO Chase Carey has made no secret of his desire to retain a 15-18 race calendar for the season, and two races in Russia could help to bolster the number.

"Currently, we are working with colleagues from Formula 1 on various options for holding the Russian Grand Prix," a Rosgonki spokesperson told Motorsport.com.

"If necessary, we do not exclude the possibility of holding two rounds. Sochi has an excellent modern infrastructure that our partners appreciate,. In terms of organisation, the Rosgonki team is ready for several racing weekends in Sochi.

"The final format of the race will be determined after additional consultations with experts and analysis of the current situation with coronavirus."
