Haas predict further race 'cancellations but not changes' in revised F1 calendar

Haas predict further race 'cancellations but not changes' in revised F1 calendar

Haas team principal Guenther Steiner believes it is now too late for F1 to add replacement grands prix should more fall by the wayside this season.

In just 101 days, the curtain will fall on the 2021 F1 campaign in Abu Dhabi but there remain concerns over a number of races, specifically those in South America.

A revised calendar was released last week with no replacement for the Japanese Grand Prix, although a TBC slot remains, with Qatar expected to fill the gap.

“If there are changes, I think there will be more cancellations and not any changes anymore because we are just running out of weekends at the moment," said Steiner.

"There is not a lot you can do anymore.

“If something will happen, depending always on the corona[virus], at the moment FOM and Stefano [Domenicali, F1 CEO] are pushing hard to get this calendar to the end like it is now but you never know."

Last weekend's Belgian Grand Prix saw half points awarded for just the sixth time in the sport's history despite no racing taking place as rain halted play.

“As we saw last weekend, we don’t have nature under control so if the pandemic hits hard in one of the countries we are going to, I think the only option is to cancel the event," added Steiner.

“I don’t think there is a big option to change it to another place because there is just not enough time.

“If you think, in a little bit more than three months the season is over.”

US, Mexico and Brazilian GPs are probably not going to go ahead. Brits can't get in to the US as it is right now, and whilst they may make an exception for F1, should they?

And I know it's Texas where they don't give a toss about anybody else's health and wellbeing, but F1 has to.

Mexico is going through a really bad peak, worse than when it broke out initially.

Although Brazil is now reducing cases, they still have strict controls. And of course on returning to the UK you have to quarantine.

May have to return to Bahrain for an extra race and do doubles in Saudi and Abu Dhabi.
