Brawn wants quality over quantity if F1 calendar is extended

Formula 1 sporting manager Ross Brawn believes that a couple more races could be added to Formula 1's current race schedule.

Liberty Media reiterated recently its aim of adding more events to the sport's calendar, and centered around what  CEO Chase Carey calls 'destination cities', like New York or Las Vegas.

But Ross Brawn insists that the focus should be on quality rather than quantity.

"More important than the number is the quality of the races?" Brawn told Austrian broadcaster ORF.

"There's no point having many races that are boring. Our priority is to improve the quality of the existing races and to add only more quality races to the calendar.

Most teams aren't all that enthusiastic about a extension of F1's race calendar as it would entail an extra burden in terms of travel and logistics.

"The teams already have a challenge with the current 20 races, but I think we have the capacity for one or two more if the quality is high," Brawn added.
