Formula 1 confirm races at Mugello and Sochi

Mugello circuit

Formula 1 has confirmed two further rounds in September at Mugello and Sochi as the 2020 calendar continues to take shape.

The series will travel to Mugello in Tuscany for the first time, with the race scheduled for 11-13 September to coincide with Ferrari’s 1000th race in Formula 1.

The additions mean that the 2020 calendar now includes 10 confirmed races, with the Russian Grand Prix at Sochi scheduled for September 25-27.

“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,” said F1 chairman Chase Carey.

“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 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.”
