Towards a calendar of 22 Grands Prix

Due to the pandemic, F1 executives had to revise a schedule which this year was to include a record 22 stopovers.

It will ultimately only contain 17 and all races planned in America have been canceled.

However, the same number of events is envisaged in 2021, according to information obtained by Le Journal of Montreal.

This new calendar will be submitted to the authorities concerned next week as part of the World Council of the International Federation, which will take place virtually.

Montreal is obviously on the list and will keep its mid-June date as usual. It should be mentioned, however, that everything is subject to confirmation in the face of the COVID-19 situation.

Favorite Portugal in Vietnam?

We have also learned that only one Grand Prix registered in the initial 2020 calendar could disappear next year, that of Vietnam, whose inaugural event never took place this year.

To compensate for this loss, F1 could then turn to one of the destinations that was not on the first calendar (disclosed last November) of the current season. The Portuguese Grand Prix would be in the best position to secure this coveted place.

This time, it’s on the Portimão track, in the Algarve region, that the F1 cars will be racing, from October 23 to 25.

And probably for years to come.
