Formula 1 Announces The Biggest Season Ever With 2021 Calendar

Formula 1 Calendar 2021

While this year only allowed for an abbreviated season consisting of 17 events, next year will more than make up for it with a record-breaking 23 races. Kicking off in March at Australia’s own Albert Park, the Formula 1 calendar for 2021 currently stretches all the way to early December where the season will conclude at Yas Marina in Abu Dhabi.

Of course, this calendar is only the first draft. As you’ll notice below, the Vietnamese Grand Prix has been axed from April due to the arrest of key officials responsible for its establishment and organisation (the alleged crimes non-related to the F1 itself). A replacement will most likely be selected from one of the tracks fans witnessed this season due to COVID-19. According to BBC, potential candidates include the upcoming Turkish GP, Italy’s Imola, and Portugal’s Portimao.

In October of 2019, the F1 announced an “agreement in principle” to host a round at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami. While nothing has been confirmed just yet, this may also be considered in lieu of Hanoi. Whether organisers would be willing go back-and-forth to hit the US twice in a season is another matter entirely.



Furthermore, while it’s fairly safe to assume they will in fact go ahead, at this point in time, both the Spain and Brazil dates are still within the final stages of negotiation.
