Formula One CEO Chase Carey is still committed to a 25-race calendar in future and has warned events with “unattractive” deals signed under the previous regime that their places on it are at risk.

Liberty took control of F1 at the beginning of 2017 and has sought out new venues to host races in the future.

The idea of 25 races in a season is unpopular with drivers and teams and it would likely be introduced with a significant tweak to the existing weekend format.

So far the only new race added is the 2020 Vietnam Grand Prix, which will take place in the city of Hanoi.

A proposed Miami Grand Prix has been postponed until 2020 at least, while there is speculation of a return to racing at Dutch circuit Zandvoort.

Carey and F1’s commercial director Sean Bratches have previously indicated a willingness to keep the championship’s traditional races, but many of these are still tied up in deals negotiated by former boss Bernie Ecclestone.
