Formula 1 lowers the Turkish GP and adds a second race in Austria

The Formula 1 management dropped today to the Turkish Grand Prix of its 2021 calendar due to restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic and added a second race in Austria, thus maintaining the planned number of 23 dates.

“With new Covid-19 travel restrictions, it is no longer possible to race in Turkey from June 11 to 13,” the category reported on its website about the competition that was scheduled at the permanent Istanbul Park circuit.

As a result of this cancellation, the French Grand Prix, scheduled at La Castellet, was brought forward a week (from June 18 to 20) to make room for the Styrian Grand Prix, which will take place between June 25 and 27. month at Spielberg, home of the Austrian GP the following weekend.

The Styrian GP debuted last season due to forced restructuring by the pandemic and was won by six-time world champion, Britain’s Lewis Hamilton, with Mercedes.
