For 2021, Formula 1 is planned to hold the biggest session in history with 23 stages. Despite this, the Turkish Grand Prix is threatened after entering the Red Zone of the UK, where most of the teams are based. Therefore, the long schedule, which may still change, concerns Guenther Steiner, Haas’s chief.
The Turkish leg was put on the calendar for 2021 soon after the cancellation of the Canadian Grand Prix, which required a 14-day quarantine period for anyone arriving in the country. The situation will make it difficult for F1, which would have run a few days before in the Azerbaijan Grand Prix. In Turkey, the situation is similar, but tight schedules, with races in sequence in France and Austria, make programming difficult.
According to Steiner, in an interview with the Autosport website, the difficulties with the long-lasting and Kovid-19 epidemic are causing problems for team employees who are away from their homes.

The Haas chief said, “Anything is possible, but there is a limit to what you can tell people to do. We need to be respectful because some people haven’t been at home for six weeks. I don’t think it’s is reasonable.”
“I mean it’s good to work, but at a certain point it’s not like your schedule is left. Last year it was difficult and this year, especially at the end, it’s complicated with all those breeds. That we have to do. ” We do. But we don’t have to overdo it, I don’t consider it an option, just move on for the next two months and then go home “, the leader continued.
The Formula 1 season of 2021 still promises some ungrateful trips for teams and drivers, such as three rounds planned on different continents, as well as a separate trip to Australia – initially scheduled to open the championship. – and a runtime competition to close the Middle East.
