Formula 1 CEO Stefano Domenicali wants to beat 23 Grand Prix in just 36 weekends in the coming year. This worries world champion Sebastian Vettel.
If Formula 1 managing director Stefano Domenicali has his way, the 2022 World Championship will consist of 23 races, starting in Bahrain on 20 March and ending in Abu Dhabi on 20 November, i.e. just 36 weekends. Among other things, the schedule is very tightly woven as the World Cup will take place in Qatar from 21 November.
So many races in such a short period of time, with a summer break on top of it, that worries four-time Formula 1 champion Sebastian Vettel. In Turkey, the 53-time GP winner says: “We must not forget the people. As a Formula 1 community, we travel all over the world, and everyone can find out just how much work skilled workers have to do. 52 weeks a year, four months with no running, the rest squeezed into one very intense season.”
«We must strive to advance our climate in a sustainable way, not only in terms of environmental protection, but also when dealing with human resources. Because let’s not forget – for most experts a GP weekend is much longer than Saturday and Sunday, the days most fans follow the game. We drivers are still doing well when it comes to stress.”
“We have to create a climate that allows people to live normal lives apart from their jobs. Because most skilled workers, whether they are mechanics or engineers or other team members, have families, many have children, and They should not be neglected. We have to decide carefully how we value our interests.”
Aston Martin star Sebastian Vettel gets a lot of praise on social networks for his words, but some fans even suggest you can clearly feel where the wind is blowing – more races, more money Formula 1 The box office must go in the rinse, it’s that simple.
Stefano Domenicali plans to announce the 15th program on October 2022. Probable process shows that people are given very little attention. The program consists of three packages of three races over three weeks, as well as four events with two races within eight days.
For comparison: the comprehensive schedule for 2021 has four grands prix in double packages and only one triple.
