Formula One teams are set to ask Bernie Ecclestone to review his recent reshuffle of the 2012 calendar.
Ecclestone, the sport’s commercial ringmaster, provided teams with a provisional revamped schedule, but it is understood that teams have concerns about the final part of the season.
Ecclestone’s plans include three back-to-back events in quick succession – Japan and Korea, Abu Dhabi and Bahrain, and the United States and Brazil.
Renault team boss Eric Boullier suggested that teams are concerned that having that many races on different continents in such a short time could be a logistical nightmare.
“We plan actually to ask for a rethink for the logistics,” said Boullier, “It is to make it a little bit easier for the task force and a bit cheaper by way of moving logistics differently.”
“We have a thought between us already and we would like to suggest a couple of ideas,” he said.
“We are not involved in the final decision of the calendar, but I understand it is not definite so we have room to ask for discussion and to make suggestions.”
McLaren boss Martin Whitmarsh added: “The calendar is tough, but I understand it is going to change again. So, until we have the final calendar, there is no point complaining about a provisional one.”
