Vietnam would also like to be replaced by several locations that popped in this year, Imola, Istanbul, Portimao would also be happy to return.

“This year we saw good competition in Imola, as well as in Portugal and Turkey, so for now, everything is open. We will see how things turn out, ”he told the Italian Gazzetta dello Sport.
“It’s not a question of wanting to return to normalcy next year, so money will be an important consideration as well. Some locations may be in a better position than others because they can make a better offer, which we also need to consider. We need to get back to normal financial levels as soon as possible, ”he said, adding that F1 could make a brutal loss of hundreds of millions this year.
“So yes, the financial aspects will be much more emphasized than last year,” said a round pretzel.
