How the FourFourSeconds schedule builder will work
- by admin
FourFour2 have announced a schedule builder for their upcoming Formula One season.
The schedule builder is designed to build teams for each of the four main series, including GP3, GP2 and F1, with a new championship event in 2020.
The new championship is expected to be held in 2020, with the first race being the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
The team have said the new scheduling structure will allow the teams to build their own teams, with only the team that wins the championship being able to change the schedule.
“In 2019 we will introduce a new format that will allow for teams to design and construct their own schedules, based on the driver, tyre supplier and team’s own preferences,” said Formula One’s technical director Eric Boullier.
“For example, if the driver is interested in a new race, the team can choose from a range of other race-specific race-day options, including a race in Abu Dhabi.”
There will be three main races, with each race in the first three weeks of the year and each race between February and May.
The new format is a departure from the existing format of a series in which the driver of the fastest car and the fastest team are pitted against each other in the opening race.
It will also mean teams can choose which races they want to race.
“The new schedule builder allows teams to choose their own schedule for each race, with just one schedule,” Boulliers said.
“There will also be a number of other options, such as a race at Suzuka, and a race between two teams from the same manufacturer.”
We have seen the feedback that this approach is effective for all four of the teams, so we will work with the teams and stakeholders to ensure this format remains successful.
“The first round of the schedule builder, which will be announced on Monday, will be a GP3 round and will be held at the Circuit de Catalunya.
The first race of the new schedule is expected on May 29, with F1’s next race taking place at Silverstone in September 2020.
The second round of schedule builder was announced last month, and is expected for 2018.
It is a GP2 round and it will be at the Spanish GP on June 1 and will take place on July 31.”
It is a good day for all fans of F1,” Bouillon said.”
Our aim is to bring F1 back to its roots and to allow fans to enjoy the racing for which they have grown up.
“F1 has enjoyed a busy 2017 season, with new drivers Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen winning the Constructors’ Championships and Renault driver Romain Grosjean taking the win in his first race at the French Grand Prix in December.
