'No American races this year', big loss for Verstappen

As the races in Nuremberg, Imola and Portimao approach their announcement, it seems that no American circuit will be hit in 2020. The coronavirus, which is still advancing hard in America, is at the root of Formula 1's decision to avoid the Western continents.

That's Autosport.com. The United States and Brazil are among the countries most affected by the pandemic worldwide. That's why Formula 1 would consider it unwise to move the entire circus in that direction. This means that no deals are planned in the US and Brazil, but also not in Canada and Mexico. In exchange, the races of Imola, Portimao and Nuremberg will take their place.
In the end, Formula 1 hopes to extend the calendar to between fifteen and eighteen races, with a conclusion in Bahrain and Abu Dhabi. At the moment thirteen races are planned. Whether there will still be races in Asia, is unclear.

Verstappen strong in America

Deleting the American races is a big loss for Max Verstappen. He won three of his eight races in the continents that are not visited now. He won twice in Mexico (2017 and 2018), last year he was the fastest in Brazil.
