The event in Russia marks the tenth of the 2020 season
The calendar is not yet closed definitively
Formula 2 will race in Russia in this extraordinary 2020 season, logically conditioned by the coronavirus. The calendar is not yet closed definitively, so there is no other appointment to be ruled out.
The season was presented with a first plan of only eight events –which would be expanded–, as well as Formula 1 and Formula 3, but as the Grand Circus extended its calendar, those in the lower categories followed suit.
First was Mugello, who will attend the three series and will be the closing event of Formula 3; Now, the Formula 2 calendar has been expanded with the arrival of Sochi and at the moment it does not aim to be the last test.
According to the championship promoter, the final schedule has not yet been “finalized.” At the moment they have ten appointments, but they do not rule out adding any more and affirm that the rest of the calendar will be announced “in due course”.
The silver category will go to Russia hand in hand with Formula 1, of course – that is, they will race in Sochi from 25 to 27 September. How could it be otherwise, the CEO of Formula 2, Bruno Michel, was very happy.
“This announcement is very good news. First of all, it means that we now have ten confirmed rounds for 2020. That is very positive for everyone involved in the Championship,” said Michel.
Formula 2 has three Russian drivers in its ranks this season: Robert Shwartzman – who also leads the championship -, Nikita Mazepin and Artem Markelov. Not surprisingly, traveling to Russia was a practically obligatory task.
“We currently have three Russian drivers on the grid, with Robert Shwartzman currently in the lead in the standings. Also for this reason it is great to bring the F2 to Sochi,” said Bruno Michel to conclude.
