As announced at the time, the championship will start on March 26 in Portimão and end on November 26 in Valencia , in the longest season in the history of the competition. Otherwise, this agenda highlights the tendency to seek to open markets to countries located further to the East.
Apart from the last-minute additions of India and Kazakhstan, above all the exclusion of the race based in Alcañiz stands out, which, in this way, will leave the Iberian Peninsula with four appointments (Portugal and the three Spanish). In parallel, the three-week break after the French Grand Prix (May 14) is also striking. At this point it must be taken into account that this gap will be ‘compensated’ with the first triplet, which will include the races in Italy (June 11), Germany (18) and the Netherlands (25).
The first stop in Spain will take place on April 30, in Jerez , while the second, in Montmeló , will be considerably delayed and will not take place until the beginning of September.
In any case, if there is something that deserves special attention, it is the overcrowding of races after the summer break. It is worth noting that the teams will face three trebles, with a rest week between the first (Australia, Indonesia and Thailand), and the second (Malaysia, Qatar and Valencia).
