Hockenheim is open for possible return on 2020 F1 calendar

Formula 1 is currently looking for a way to shape the 2020 calendar. Double headers in Austria, Great Britain and Hungary seem to be the most likely solution, but more and more other circuits are also appearing to fill in the gaps.

For example, the circuit of Imola has already indicated that they would like to host a Grand Prix this year, preferably a week after Monza and on Tuesday. it was also announced that the Algarve International Circuit will make itself available. The management in Portugal even expects to receive Formula 1 as early as June.

The Hockenheimring can now be added to that list. The circuit was originally one of the victims for the 2020 calendar. The organisation in Germany could no longer support an extension of the contract with Formula 1 and so it seemed that the German Grand Prix 2019 would be the last F1 race on the classic circuit for the time being.

Regular contact with Liberty Media since corona crisis

Because of the corona crisis, Hockenheim may also have an opening to return to the F1 calendar sooner. Circuit director Jorn Teske says Auto Bild was in regular contact with Liberty Media for the last time before the coronacrisis, but a possible return has at least been discussed by him in the meantime.

"The subject has indeed been touched upon. We all see that the Formula 1 calendar is upside down and if Formula 1 shows an interest in a race this summer we would be ready to talk about it. The only condition, of course, is that all health requirements and financial feasibility are guaranteed".
