In the round-up: Sebastian Vettel says drivers cannot wield any influence over whether Formula 1 returns to circuits such as Mugello.

What they say

Vettel was asked whether the Grand Prix Drivers’ Association can apply pressure to F1 to keep Mugello and other tracks which have been added to the 2020 F1 calendar on the schedule:

I think that’s not part of our discussions, even. I think there’s other tracks that we would like to join the calendar because we love driving those tracks but it’s not discussed because in the end, there’s other interests that determine whether there will be a race held in that place or not.

Speaking of Mugello, I think the drivers like it but obviously I don’t know if it is in the cards in the future, if it is realistic. This I don’t know and we’re not we’re not part of that conversation.
