One Less F1 Race for 2013

Despite scheduling 20 races for 2013, it seems likely that there will only be 19 Formula One races in 2013.

Last week Bernie Ecclestone played down the idea that the Austrian Grand Prix could return after 10 years.

When asked if a race could be held at Spielberg’s Red Bull owned circuit Ecclestone said, “Really? Who says that? Until now I have not talked about this with anybody”.

Ecclestone added that he hasn’t been in contact with Red Bull’s owner Dietrich Mateschitz for a while and that there has been no approach from the company. He went on to say that the lack of hotels in that region in Austria is still a problem.

Ecclestone said that for the time being he is more interested in Turkey and a return to Istanbul. This year’s Turkish race was cancelled due to disagreements over hosting fees.

The extra race this year results from the postponement to 2014 of a street-circuit race in New Jersey.

The changes to the calendar have already caused inconvenience for some, MotoGP’s governing body and the Goodwood Festival of Speed have both had to change their dates to accommodate the calendar revisions and avoid a clash.
