4 Factors that make or break a circuit’s place on the F1 calendar

4 Factors that make or break a circuit’s place on the F1 calendar: Formula 1 has come a long way since its inception in 1950. But despite being great, the majority of these circuits never returned as venues for the pinnacle of motorsport. On top of that, circuit owners need to pay hosting fees, which according to Forbes averaged at £22.9m ($28.7m) in 2019. But, as a greater emphasis on circuit safety has been placed in recent years, many of these great tracks have disappeared from the calendar. According to FIA regulations, circuits should be no longer than 7 km and no shorter than 3.5 km. This means circuit owners need to build venues and facilities that allow teams and businesses to host events that are engaging and exciting.
