THE Belgian Grand Prix will kick-off the third round of triple header races on the F1 2020 calendar this season.
This comes after Lewis Hamilton cruised to victory in the Spanish Grand prix earlier this month, with the Brit star hoping to bag another victory at the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps.
Triple Headers were introduced as a solution to complete the F1 season which came to a sudden halt when coronavirus outbreak hit.
The F1 season usually runs for 22 matches, but this will impossible to meet because of the pandemic.
Despite this, F1 bosses are optimistic that can still acheive a 15-18 race season.
F1 boss Ross Brawn said: “That’s not great, but it’s better than no racing at all.”
