Chase Carey plays down 2018 'triple header'

Chase Carey plays down the 'triple header' that will take place in Formula 1 next year.

Chase Carey has played down the 'triple header' that will take place in Formula 1 next year.

On the bustling 21-race calendar for 2018, three events - France, Austria and Britain - will be held on subsequent weekends.

Carey, who has replaced Bernie Ecclestone as F1 CEO, said that the back-to-back races are to avoid a clash with the World Cup final.

"It would have been difficult for promoters to have to compete with the final of a World Cup," he said.

"It's important to notice that all of the races of the three are in Europe. I think the calendar is well thought out."

The 2017 championship continues on Sunday with the Azerbaijan Grand Prix.
