Jordan Calls for Reduced F1 Calendar

Friday August 31st, 2001

Team boss Eddie Jordan has called for a reduction in the number of races on the Formula One calendar in an effort to prevent young drivers from suffering 'burn-out'.

Jordan, responding to suggestions that the calendar may be increased from its present 17 races, said that the decision to have so many race weekends has backfired on the FIA, the sport's governing body.

"There is a view that perhaps we should have more races," Jordan said today in Belgium during a press conference. "I would like less races because it is just such a huge task. The amount of work to be done is enormous and the people it hurts most is the young drivers.

"This, perhaps, when it was decided, was not fully thought out and it has possibly backfired on all of us."
