Different native occasions are additionally a consideration as whereas some are effective to be grouped with F1 others should not for numerous causes.
After which you might have different issues to think about, Particularly with races on non permanent circuits that want time to be construct up and tore down as there could once more be native issues across the disruption that must be taken into consideration.
