Formula 1 continues to work on a plan B if the top class cannot drive in Great Britain in July due to the quarantine regulations that apply there. In addition to Hockenheim, which is currently considered a favorite, Budapest is now also under discussion as an alternative for Silverstone. The goal is two races on July 26 and August 2.
The 2020 season is scheduled to start on July 5 and 12 with two races in Spielberg, and Formula 1 wants to hold two more races immediately after a week-long break. Silverstone was originally intended for this purpose, but in the UK all travelers entering the country will first have to be quarantined for 14 days.

Formula 1 had hoped for a special permit for their circus, but this does not seem to exist. Hockenheim and Budapest would be a logical choice as a replacement because both countries have a direct border with Austria. Short distances are important in the corona crisis in order to keep entry and exit as uncomplicated as possible.
There should be a break after the races in Spielberg and Hungary. During this time, the members of the British teams could go to the mandatory quarantine in their home country before setting off for the next race. This could then take place in Hockenheim if you first drive in Budapest.
An insider from a team explains to 'Motorsport-Total.com' with regard to the calendar: "Everything is still pretty open. The only thing that is clear is that all teams want to drive again and will do everything necessary - including quadruple headers and several months without returning home if necessary. As long as it’s safe. "
