The beginning of the season has shifted by a week, and now the championship does not start in Australia, but in the last weekend of March in Bahrain. The preseason tests will also take place ten days later, and not in Barcelona, but at the circuit in Sakhir – accordingly, the final stage of the preparation of the Formula 1 debutants is also postponed. But it seems that Mika Schumacher is not embarrassed by the adjustment of the season calendar.
“Of course, I would have preferred the season to start in Australia, but with such a calendar I will have more time to prepare,” he commented in an interview with DPA. – In any case, everyone is on an equal footing. I don’t think these changes will have any impact on the plans of the Haas F1 team. My task is to prepare as well as possible for the start of the season. “
