The organization of Formula One World has unveiled this Tuesday the revised schedule for season 2021, what leaves the Bahrain Grand Prix as the opening date of the season between March 26 and 28 and Australia delays to November.

The Travel restrictions also affect the Chinese Grand Prix, which may not be held on the scheduled dates. The promoters will evaluate with the authorities the possibility of fitting that race into the calendar, if possible.

After these changes, the number of races planned for the 2021 season remains at 23.
