Gunther Steiner on next season’s calendar


Gunther Steiner, the head of Haas F1, hopes that next year, despite the record number of Grand Prix, it will be possible to slightly reduce the workload on the team staff so that people do not get exhausted and they do not have the desire to leave Formula 1.

Gunther Steiner: “To be honest, I haven’t seen the final version of the calendar yet, very few people have seen it yet. It will be presented to the FIA ​​World Motorsport Council in about a week – then we’ll see what awaits us next year.

When the season calendar is being drawn up, there are a lot of difficulties to overcome in order for all the promoters in the field to be happy, especially if it consists of 23 races. Each of the promoters wants the perfect date for their Grand Prix, and if they manage to finish the season a little earlier than 2021 next year, that would be good.

This year, almost immediately after the tests in Abu Dhabi, the Christmas holidays come, so an earlier end of the season will help primarily people who have families. This year, the calendar was again compiled taking into account the exceptional circumstances associated with Covid-19, which was also not easy, but, in my opinion, they did a great job in Formula 1. But if in the next season it will be a little easier for everyone, this can only be welcomed.

I think we are getting used to such a busy calendar. But some things can be improved, for example, you can make the schedule of weekends more concise. This will at least allow the team personnel to save some time, because now people are very tired.

Also, I don’t think there will be a lot of three-race streaks in a row in 2022. We need to meet people halfway, try to reduce the load, so that towards the end of the season they do not lose their strength, so that they do not want to leave Formula 1.

You just have to try to find some compromise solutions, take into account both the interests of the teams and the interests of people. ”
