Liberty Media have some big plans for the F1 having already released the new ‘F1 TV’, an online subscription service that helps viewers get involved with the sport a little better, giving them access to practices, press conferences and the option to view the races from 20 different camera angles.
Along with this digital TV revolution that Liberty is trying to bring about, it is also working towards adding two street races for the 2019 F1 season.
The Formula One management has apparently already agreed upon two new street races in Vietnam and Florida for the 2019 season(according to reports in Auto Motor und Sport).
A six kilometre circuit has already been approved by the FIA in the Hanoi region in Vietnam. And while the Vietnam circuit talk has been on for sometime, the second circuit is a rather new one, which is a 17 corner, 5.2 km long track on the streets of Miami, Florida.
The circuit has been approved by FOM and is in accordance with Liberty Media’s intention of increasing the number of races in the United States of America.
Architect Hermann Tilke has been given the job of constructing the circuit and will be on the job once an official confirmation is in place.
If these two new venues and the Argentine Grand Prix is in place, the 2018 season could be a 24 race season.
However, 24 races could really stretch all the teams and hence a few of the venues from the 2018 year could be dropped, IF these new three venues are given the green light.
The German GP could take 1-year break as usual and with no Brazilian racer on tour, Interlagos could also lose out on holding a race from next season.
