Formula 1 Reveals First Revised Schedule for 2021

Here we go again.

Formula 1 confirmed the rumors and has postponed, due to COVID-19 concerns, both the F1 Australian and Chinese Grand Prix. Australia, which was to have kicked off the season on March 21, has been moved to November 12.

Due to travel restrictions surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, the Chinese GP, which had been scheduled for April 11, has also been postponed. Organizers have requested a date in the second half of the season, but F1 has yet to secure a date for that race.

The 2021 season will now start a week later with the Bahrain Grand Prix on March 28.

The series also added Imola, Italy, to the schedule on April 18, as Formula 1 continues to hold out hopes for a record 23-race season. Formula 1 originally scheduled 22 races for 2020, but the pandemic cut the final count to 17 races.

Formula 1’s lastest schedule still includes one TBA, as the series hopes to races somewhere (Portugal, maybe?) on May 2.
