Vietnam with a strange Grand Prix cancellation
The 2020 Vietnam Grand Prix was officially canceled by the organizers a few hours ago. Curious about it: It had been certain for weeks that the race would not take place. The final calendar for the 2020 Formula 1 season was published in August – excluding Vietnam. Nevertheless (probably for legal reasons) the official cancellation of Vietnam took place only now.
The news is sold as “Breaking News” on the race homepage. Everyone knew that there would be no more races there in 2020. It is unclear whether the Formula 1 premiere will take place in Vietnam in 2021. There is currently no calendar for the coming year. The current corona situation makes a reasonably safe planning currently impossible.
Marko: Leclerc “impressive” this year
Monegasse celebrates its 23rd birthday today. First of all, congratulations! Incidentally, the Ferrari driver received praise from Helmut Marko for his achievements this year. He said at ‘auto motor und sport’: “Verstappen and Hamilton drive alone at their level. Then comes the Leclerc. And it drives really well in this Ferrari. That is impressive.” In the internal Ferrari duel against Vettel, Leclerc leads more than clearly with 63:17 points.
Vettel: Better to abolish Thursday
Let’s stay with the Friday training. Sebastian Vettel says that not that much would change for the drivers – but for the engineers. “You have no way of really working on the car and on the set-up,” he explains. The preparation for the race – in the simulator and Co. – would become even more important. He also refers to the audience.
“If nobody drives, then it doesn’t make sense for the spectators to come to the track on a Friday. The weekend program will be smaller. So I’m not sure what the plan for the future is. I would prefer Thursday than abolish Friday, “he clarifies. According to Vettel, if in doubt, the media day should rather disappear.
Does Formula 1 need the Friday training?
Today is Friday, so this topic fits quite well. At the Nürburgring, Friday fell completely through the water, and Imola will soon only be driven on Saturday and Sunday. The question arises as to whether modern Formula 1 still needs the classic two training sessions on Friday. Lewis Hamilton, for example, sees “many positive aspects” in canceling Friday.
“For one thing, there are 22 days less [pro Jahr], where 20 cars drive around the track and pollute the air, “he emphasizes the ecological aspect. On the other hand, it presents the drivers with greater challenges. You only have one session on Saturday to get the set-up right World champions could therefore easily live with the abolition of Friday.
