F1 gets the green light to start the season with the Austrian double GP



F1 star Daniel Ricciardo on farm life in lockdown

The race at the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg will be the first of the F1 double header, with the second staged the following weekend.

Both races will be held behind closed doors without spectators, it was confirmed in a statement released to CNN.

Austrian Health Minister Rudolf Anshober said the two races had been approved after Formula One organizers had “presented a comprehensive professional security plan” to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

“In addition to strict hygiene measures, the plan also provides routine tests and health checks for the team and all other employees,” he added.

The relatively remote location of the Red Bull Ring and the closest local airport have made it an ideal place for F1 in its current state, while the infection rate and number of deaths of less than 700 in Austria are relatively smaller than other European countries.

Started chaotic

The green light to start the action will be of assistance to the organizers and the F1 team after the start of the 2020 season thrown into chaos with the last minute cancellation of the Australian Grand Prix in March, just hours before training is scheduled to begin.

Melbourne is the first of 10 races that were canceled or postponed, but F1 boss Chase Carey said he believed the 15-18 race season could still be completed.

When it starts, Lewis Hamilton will bid for a seventh world title equivalent to an F1 record but hopes to race in front of his home crowd in the double header of the British Grand Prix at Silverstone after the Austrian race remained in balance.

In a sign of hope, the British government gave a go-head Saturday to restart competitive sports from the earliest Monday.

“It’s up to each individual sport to decide exactly when to continue the competition. They know their best sport. But football, tennis, horse racing, Formula 1, cricket, golf, rugby, snooker, and others are ready to return to (Screen TV soon, “said Oliver Dowden, Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sports.

But the British government insisted that all arrivals in the country undergo a two-week quarantine period could have an impact on the plans for the British Grand Prix, unless there were exceptions.

While F1 action has been limited to virtual racing, behind the scenes there has been a major upheaval with Carlos Sainz replacing Sebastian Vettel at Ferrari for 2021 and Daniel Ricciardo leaving Renault for McLaren.

The smaller team is also under huge financial pressure, with Williams announcing earlier this week that they are ready to sell after losing 13 million pounds (15.7 million dollars) last year.

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.



Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
