Last week governing body FIA announced 22-races F1 calendar for 2014 season, includes Austria, Russia, Mexico and second US Gran Prix venue New Jersey, still schedule not finalize, now waiting for WMSC approval.

“We all recognise that 22 races are beyond the limit, because of the strain that it puts on the team and the entourage that follow F1,” Christian Horner said.

“If you are doing 22 races in economy class, flying around the world, and going a week before the race and coming back a few days afterwards, it is a long, tough season.

“For me an ideal number is 20. That is saturation point. But I can understand why Bernie [Ecclestone] is pushing to get more venues.”

“It is feasible, of course it is feasible, but it is expensive,” he said. “So, let’s see. The calendar has changed a lot over the last few weeks, and I am sure before the end of the season there will be a few more tweaks to it.”

McLaren team Principal Martin Whitmarsh is also says that, need do rub out few circuits, and also he need close the gap between some races.

“It’s a bit of a pain in the neck for everyone, a trip out then back again, but we used to do it,” he said.

“If you assume a number of these circuits fail, that two or three of the dates don’t happen – and you can imagine which three they are – there are some untidy gaps in the season.

“It’s a season that is pretty spread out, then these pretty painful gaps in the middle of them.”
