Portimao is to be resurfaced later this summer ahead of October ’s Portuguese GP – adding an extra element of surprise to a venue that Formula 1 teams are unfamiliar with. Pirelli F 1 boss Mario Isola says that the Algarve track would be tough on tyres even without the new surface generating extra grip.

The race track in the Algarve will be re-asphalted for the Formula 1 race in October - this poses a major challenge for Pirelli

Portugal will return to Formula 1 in 2020 Racing calendar and is gearing up for the comeback in October. The Algarve International Circuit will be newly paved in summer. This not only creates a new challenge for drivers and teams, but also for tire supplier Pirelli.

Formula 1 last drove in Portimao in winter 2008/09, since then only Mercedes has been a guest in April 2017 for a test in W06 with George Russell and Nicholas Latifi. The new asphalt belt makes the unknown route an even greater challenge.

Nurburgring, Portimao and Imola event added to 2020 F1 calendar

  Nurburgring, Portimao and Imola event added to 2020 F1 calendar Formula 1 has announced the Nurburgring and Imola will return to the calendar in 2020 after lengthy spells away, with Portimao also added on the revised schedule. The opening 10 European races have already been revealed by championship officials, which includes a first visit to Mugello for Ferrari’s 1000th world championship entry. The Nurburgring last hosted a F1 grand prix in 2013 and will be run on October 7-9, followed by F1’s return to Portugal for the first time in 24 years at the Algarve International Circuit two weeks later.

FIA race director Michael Masi planned a trip to the Algarve in mid-September, when the asphalting work should be finished. Pirelli Formula 1 boss Mario Isola faces a difficult task. Because: "Of all the new routes, Portimao is the one with the greatest difficulty."

The course puts a lot of strain on the tires on the one hand due to the layout, and on the other hand due to the particularly rough asphalt. "They will re-asphalt the route at the end of August, they are planning to completely re-asphalt the route," says the Italian.

"The goal is that the asphalt is very similar to the current one, but we also know that a new asphalt is always different from the old one." Because: "The bitumen content on the surface of the new asphalt is much higher than that of older asphalt."

Hockenheim no longer in the running to host F1 race in 2020

  Hockenheim no longer in the running to host F1 race in 2020 Hockenheim has revealed that it will not hold a Formula 1 race this year because of the strict limits on the numbers of people who would be able to attend. The German circuit had been one of the leading contenders to grab a European race slot this year as F1 chiefs look to fill out their calendar.But despite lengthy talks with F1 owners Liberty Media over potentially hosting a race later this year as part of a triple header in October with Imola and Portimao, Hockenheim has ended talks because it was impossible to guarantee that enough fans would be allowed in to the venue.

Formula 1 is delighted to release the draft calendar of the 2020 FIA Formula 1 World Championship, which features an unprecedented 22 Grands Prix. F 1 's 70th anniversary season gets underway with the Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne on March 15 and, as usual, it will end with the Abu Dhabi Grand

October -November for a race in europe is almost certainly going to risk rain, or hell even snow. Portimao looks absolutely mental in an F 1 car, takes on a new life compared to seeing road cars lapping it.

For this reason, Pirelli will use the three hardest tire compounds (C1, C2 and C3) in Portugal. At the same time, Isola is dealing with another question: "Because of the new asphalt, we will achieve a much higher level of grip, at the same time much less wear."

This creates significantly more heat in the tire tread. "The teams have to keep that in mind during the weekend. But we can't find out until we drive there." The tire supplier in Mugello and Imola gained more experience thanks to test drives with Ferrari and AlphaTauri.

"Mugello is a very demanding track, we know that it could be hot there in mid-September, so we decided to use the C1, C2 and C3 tire compounds there too." Imola, on the other hand, protects the tires a little more. "There we will probably drive with C2, C3 and C4."

In the third race in Italy there is also the fact that there are only two days of driving. "The teams will have fewer free practice sessions, so they have less time to tune the car. This leads to greater unpredictability, which could be good for the show."

The prospects are rather worrying for the engineers. Just like Pirelli the race in Germany. Most recently, Formula 1 drove in 2013 in the V8 era at the Nürburgring. "Back then we drove there with the medium and the soft, but you cannot compare the situation with today, they were different tire compounds, different cars."

According to the Pirelli data, the track in the Eifel is also an average demanding one for the tires. "It could be quite cold there, but the C5 may be a bit too extreme, so we'll probably go for C2, C3 and C4 again."
