Chase Carey has given Copenhagen the thumbs-up as a potential grand prix venue of the future. The Danish capital is vying to secure a place on the 2020 grid with a city street circuit.
“We are very excited to explore the possibility of a race here in Denmark,” F1 chief executive Carey told BT newspaper during his visit on Wednesday. “We have talked a lot about the importance of our events being at iconic locations that capture the world’s interest, and I think Copenhagen does that,” he added.
However, there are some hurdles. Private investors are still raising money and trying to secure the full support of government and the community.
