F1 on Thursday July 9 update its 2020 F1 calendar adding races at Mugello in Italy and Sochi in Russia. Italy’s spectacular Mugello circuit will host a Grand Prix for the very first time in September.

Mugello is owned by Ferrari, and the circuit’s first F1 event – set for September 11-13, the weekend after the Italian Grand Prix at Monza – is set to be a celebration in more ways than one, given it will mark the Scuderia’s 1000th race in the world championship.

A regular on the MotoGP calendar, Mugello will be the fourth Italian circuit, after Monza, Imola and the fabled road course at Pescara, used just once in 1957, to host a world championship race. 

Mugello is not just one of the most spectacular and challenging tracks for drivers and cars, it is also a structure that has made sustainability one of its priorities. 

Mugello in Tuscany will follow the Italian GP at Monza, on September 11-13, with the Russian GP in Sochi confirmed for its original slot of September 25-27, which brings the current number of confirmed races in 2020 to ten, with more to be announced in the coming weeks.

As stated previously, Formula 1 expects the revised 2020 season to have between 15 and 18 races. 

Opportunity to mark 1000th race at home circuit for Ferrari

“We are delighted to announce Mugello and Sochi will be part of the 2020 calendar and want to thank all our partners for their support in recent weeks,” added Chase Carey, Chairman and CEO of Formula 1. 

“We had great start to our season in Austria last weekend and we are increasingly confident in our plans to race throughout the remainder of 2020. 

“The Russian Grand Prix is a major moment in our season and we are looking forward to being back in Sochi in September.

We are equally excited to see Formula 1 race for the first time at Mugello, an occasion that will mark Ferrari’s 1000 Grand Prix.

Both races will be a huge boost for fans with more announcements on the next races in our calendar coming in the weeks ahead.” He added.

The Portimao track in Portugal, another venue new to F1, is expected to host a race after Russia. 

Talks had been at an advanced stage with China and Vietnam for their races to be rescheduled in late autumn after their original spring dates had to be cancelled. 

But the Chinese government announced on Friday that there would be no international sporting events in the country for the remainder of the year other than trials for the 2022 Winter Olympics.
