Teams will also benefit from such a change. A scattered racing calendar lasts for several hours on the plane.

The challenge of flying from continent to continent is great for the team. “You’re about to fly the next race and have to be ready within a few days.” Steiner is relying on Formula 1 CEO Stefano Domenicali. “I know Stefano is working very hard on this, next year it will go in the right direction.” According to the magazine, all ten team bosses are up for regionalisation.
