F1 2020: Daniel Ricciardo reacts to ‘insane’ F1 proposal

Published

on

Daniel Ricciardo says it would be “insane” to race around Mugello if a second grand prix in Italy is added to this year’s revised F1 calendar.

There are suggestions a race at the iconic Ferrari-owned circuit could take place the week after the traditional Italian Grand Prix at Monza, and the Australian driver is fully supportive of the idea.

The F1 season was delayed because of coronavirus and is now scheduled to start this weekend in Austria as drivers prepare for eight European races in 10 weeks — a figure that could jump to nine in 11 weeks if Mugello, in Tuscany, is added.

“That was a circuit (Mugello) I raced back in 2007 for the first time, and it was my favourite circuit that season,” Ricciardo said, per motorsport.com.

Formula One starts its season in Austria this week, nearly four months later than planned due to the COVID-19 pandemic and against a very different backdrop — even if Lewis Hamilton’s targets remain the same.

The six-times world champion can equal Ferrari great Michael Schumacher’s record seven while his Mercedes team are bidding for an unprecedented seventh successive drivers’ and constructors’ title double.

Eight rounds, all in Europe and without spectators for the first time, feature on a provisional calendar but the sport still hopes to muster 15-18 races, even if that means several circuits hosting two each.
