F1 CEO "excited" as Danish GP plans gather speed

Written by  Jan 11, 2018

Formula 1 CEO Chase Carey says he is "excited" as plans for a Danish Grand Prix on the streets of Copenhagen gain momentum.

Initial proposals for an event taking in landmarks such as the government building and crossing two major bridges were put forward last year and would look to attract fans from the Scandinavian countries, notably Finland and Sweden, as well as the interest created by current Haas driver Kevin Magnussen.

The event is the first which ties in with the vision of owners Liberty Media of festival-style race weekend's in iconic locations and also comes as hopes for a Dutch race, a second US race and a return to the Nurburgring are all being touted.

"We’re excited about the opportunity to explore a potential race here in Denmark," Carey told Reuters on Wednesday. "I think Copenhagen represents the type of location that we think can really provide a great platform."

2020 was the year suggested for the first race in Copenhagen and if it was to get the green light, it would the first time F1 visits the country since 1962.
