FIA Formula 2 2020 calendar replaces French round with Dutch Grand Prix
The FIA Formula 2 Championship has unveiled its 2020 season calendar, which replaces the French Grand Prix support races with the Dutch Grand Prix at Zandvoort.
The series will support the Formula One World Championship at all twelve rounds, beginning at the Bahrain International Circuit on March 20-22.
The series finale will take place alongside the final Formula 1 race at Yas Marina on November 27-29.
FIA Formula 2 CEO Bruno Michel said: “Next season, our calendar will once again be made of twelve rounds, all part of the Formula 1® Grand Prix weekends. We kept the number of events to the same amount as the previous two years as we have found the right balance between European rounds and overseas race weekends.
“I can confirm that more tracks would have liked to have F2 race there, but as always, we want to ensure that our Championship remains affordable by keeping the costs under control and thus the number of events to a total of twelve.”
FIA Single-Seater Commission President, Stefano Domenicali, said: “We are pleased to confirm the calendar for the 2020 FIA Formula 2 Championship, which will once again put the stars of the future under the spotlight supporting 12 rounds of the FIA Formula One World Championship. The calendar has been carefully designed to provide the maximum experience and exposure on the final step towards F1 whilst keeping costs down.”
