Formula One’s shutdown period will be extended for another two weeks following the delay to the season caused by the current health situation.
The decision to prolong the break will be extended from 21 to 35 days. The traditional summer shutdown was brought forward from August last month and increased from two to three weeks.
F1 teams will observe the shutdown period across March, April and/or May.
The opening 9 rounds of the 2020 season have been either cancelled or postponed. Further discussions regarding this topic remain open between the FIA, Formula 1 and all teams in light of the ongoing global impact.
