Brawn: No triple-headers after 2018

Ross Brawn is hoping to avoid any triple-headers in the future, stating that 2018's one and only is the result of the football World Cup.

Next season the Formula 1 teams will have the daunting task of racing in France, Austria and Britain one weekend after the other.

It is a packed schedule as the calendar has been extended to 21 races.

However, sporting boss Brawn says it is more to do with the World Cup than F1's only schedule.

He told German broadcaster Sky: "The World Cup presented us with a very unusual problem.

"The final is in the afternoon and it would have been very unfair to have run a race on that weekend.

"We could only solve that by having three races in a row but it's not something we want to repeat in the future. 

"It was an emergency measure."
