Japan next night race on the calendar if it depends on Ecclestone

By on

As the first night race just begun, Formula One supremo Bernie Ecclestone is already considering to add more night Grands Prix to the F1 calendar. Ecclestone would like to begin with Japan as the next venue that will host a night race.

To see the Grand Prix of Japan, which is scheduled 2 weeks after the Singapore Grand Prix, people in Europe have to get up really early. Ecclestone would like to turn the GP into a night race so that Europe, the biggest market for F1, can watch it in the afternoon as is now the case with the Singapore Grand Prix.
