Formula One 2021 Calendar confirmed as Portimao occupies final spot
Formula One have finally finalised the 2021 calendar with a record breaking 23-races occupying the intense season which will start in Bahrain on March 28.
Pre-season starts next Friday as cars and drivers venture out on the Bahrain International Circuit on March 12 to bed in their 2021 contenders ahead of the season-opening Bahrain Grand Prix two weeks later.
Due to Covid-19 protocols in the ongoing global pandemic, the planned Australian Grand Prix (which was set to open up the 2021 season) was reshuffled later down the line in the F1 calendar. This allowed Bahrain to take its place as the opening venue.
The third round of the F1 season was the final race to be confirmed with many speculating it will come down to Portugal’s Portimao track to occupy the final space as F1 intended to select the Mediterranean country for the third race, earlier this year. The same track which saw Lewis Hamilton secure his record breaking 92nd race win.
It has been confirmed by F1 that Portimao will occupy the third round of the championship in May to finalise the 2021 calendar.
Hopefully the season will go ahead as planned around the ongoing Coronavirus Pandemic.
