The track in Portugal can take in the new season of two Grand Prix in a row.
Portugal can take the stage of the Formula 1 season-2020 instead of the Russian Grand Prix, writes A Bola.
The leadership of the Formula 1 doubts the prospect of holding the Grand Prix in Russia, as the country still closed borders to foreigners.
In case of failure of the race at Sochi Autodrom Formula 1 will travel to Portugal. We are talking about the circuit in Portimao in the South of the country. This track has never hosted the Grand Prix Formula 1.
Thus, portimão will be able to take two Grand Prix – September 27 (the date of the Russian stage) and 4 Oct. The first stage will be called the Grand Prix of Portugal, and the second Grand Prix of the Algarve, the name of the province in which the track is situated.
The last time Portugal had hosted Grand Prix in 1996. At that time the scene of the race was Estoril.
The season of Formula 1 has not yet started. At the moment, officially confirmed in only eight Grand Prix, which will take place from July to September.
