2022 the Formula 1 gets a second race in the United States of America. This has confirmed the race series before the Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix 2021 in Imola. and so the question turned out: Will the two America races be held in the double pack in the double pack, maybe even directly on each other in the weekly clock? This has a formula 1 boss Stefano Domenicali.

USA races should not compete with each other

stands only: Austin and Miami should not make a competition. "The dates are [far] apart," says Domenicali. "We want to give up there both races. That's crucial. Because we set the foundation for an incredible future for Formula 1."

for Domenicali is the second USA race from 2022 a "milestone we all have sought".

Soon more America in Formula 1?

"America", says Domenicali, "has gave us many opportunities and we encounter great interest there. Therefore, we consider it the right approach to make the second step that we can follow the one Grand Prix there a second "

"In the future, there could still be many [more] possibilities. You should never never say."

Because Domenicali also plans for 2022 with 23 races and, for the near future, at least in theory with a return to Africa and the premiere in Vietnam, which would have to be taken out of the calendar, probably existing Grands Prix from the calendar, probably in Europe. "That's a way," says Domenicali.

new events at the expense of Europe races

He continues to explain: "We have to be realistic. We can not spend 52 race weekends [per year] in Formula 1. The good thing is: There is a lot of interest. That puts us in the Location to keep unique events with the right value. "
