The governing bodies have come with a provisional calendar for the 2021 season.
The first race, as usual, will take place in Albert Park in Australia in mid-March. Whereas, the last race is set to take place in Abu Dhabi in mid-December. Saudi Arabia will also host the first-ever Formula 1 race.
Chase Carey, Chairman, and CEO of Formula 1 said: “We are pleased to announce the 2021 Formula 1 provisional calendar after extensive conversations with our promoters, the teams, and the FIA. We are planning for 2021 events with fans that provide an experience close to normal and expect our agreements to be honored.
“We have proven that we can safely travel and operate our races and our promoters increasingly recognize the need to move forward and manage the virus. In fact, many hosts actually want to use our event as a platform to show the world they are moving forward.
“We are delighted to see Saudi Arabia become part of the schedule and are equally excited to return to the venues we hoped to race in 2020. We want to thank all our promoters and partners for their ongoing enthusiasm and collaboration and look forward to giving our fans an exciting season on the track.”
