F1 unveils revised 2021 race schedule for final months of season with 22 round campaign – .


Schedule changes for the final months of the season have been confirmed, with a campaign reduced from one race to a record 22 events; An event at the end of November remains to be confirmed

Last update: 08/28/21 12:58 PM

The 2021 Formula 1 season will now run at 22 races under a revised schedule for the rest of the year.

As F1 continues to address the challenges posed by Covid-19 around the world, the sport has changed a number of dates following recent cancellations of events in Japan and Australia.

Although the season will now be one race less than originally planned, a campaign of 22 races remains a record for the sport.

What is different about the latest 2021 calendar?

  • Turkey spends a week later on October 10 to create a standalone event
  • Mexico moved back a week to form a new triple with Brazil and an event to be confirmed
  • The TBC race on November 21, possibly in Qatar, to be confirmed in the coming weeks

“We are very happy to announce the updates to the 2021 calendar following extensive discussions with promoters and national authorities,” said Stefano Domenicali, F1 president.

“The pandemic continues to present the season with challenges, but we have proven that we can adapt and we are confident that we can run a record 22 races this year despite a global pandemic.

“I would like to thank the promoters in Brazil, Mexico and Turkey for their patience and flexibility and we will provide details of the final addition soon. This season is proving to be an incredible battle on the track and it is extremely exciting for our fans across the world and we look forward to the intensity continuing in the races to come. “

Turkey, Mexico and Brazil remain on the government’s “red” travel list, but the lists are revised every three weeks, with the next such review taking place in mid-September. Seven of F1’s 10 teams, as well as the sports organization itself, are based in the UK.

The TBC event immediately after Mexico and Brazil means UK-based staff will be able to see the quarantine period there before returning home. Qatar is on the orange list.
