Formula 1 has responded to mounting speculation over the status of future races by announcing it will issue a “revised” calendar of events for the 2020 season.2020 F1 calendar from its website. However the sport’s governing body, the FIA continues to list a schedule of events beginning with the French Grand Prix in June, the first event on the schedule which has not been formally postponed or cancelled.
“Formula 1 is currently working with our promoters on a revised 2020 calendar with the actual sequence and schedule dates for races likely to differ significantly from our original 2020 calendar,” said the championship in a statement today. “This will be published in due course.”
The French and Belgian governments have in recent days announced extensions to bans on public gatherings which are likely to put their championship rounds, originally scheduled for June 28th and August 30th respectively, under threat.
F1 said it is making progress on offering refunds to fans who bought tickets for cancelled or postponed tickets through its outlets. Fans who bought tickets elsewhere should approach their ticket suppliers about refunds.
But while F1 intends to revise the schedule of remaining races, it noted that for the time being “for races not postponed ticket holders’ tickets remain valid.”
