BUDAPEST: Formula One teams are set to ask Bernie Ecclestone to review his recent reshuffle of the 2012 calendar. Ecclestone, the sport’s commercial ringmaster, provided teams with a provisional revamped schedule, but the teams have concerns about the final part of the season. Ecclestone’s plans include three back-to-back events in quick succession — Japan and Korea, Abu Dhabi and Bahrain, and the US and Brazil. Renault team boss Eric Boullier suggested that teams are concerned that having that many races on different continents in such a short time could be a logistical nightmare.
