F1 should focus on street racing and old tracks – Magnussen

F1 should focus on street racing and old tracks – Magnussen

F1 should refuse to add any more purpose-built circuits to the calendar and focus on street racing and “cooler” old circuits instead, according to Haas driver Kevin Magnussen.

This year’s calendar, which has been heavily revised due to Covid-19, has seen the return of Imola, Turkey and the Nurburgring as well as F1 debuts for Portimao and Mugello.

Next season's provisional calendar includes the return of Zandvoort as well as a new street race in Jeddah in Saudi Arabia while street tracks in Hanoi, Vietnam and Miami, USA are also on the future agenda.

And Magnussen said: "I would say generally it's street circuits and old circuits that are the best.

"A few new tracks are quite cool, but generally they are less exciting because they tend to build them totally flat, with flat kerbs and lots of tarmac run-off area. It’s basically like driving on a big parking lot between two white lines.

"When you go to tracks like Imola or Suzuka – and F1 will go to Zandvoort as well which is cool - these old tracks are just way cooler. Street circuits, of course, are exciting as you’re driving between walls on a street at full speed."
