An exciting first race of the season in Bahrain. Another 22 races to go. The next race is in Italy in less than three weeks time.

The 2021 F1 Calendar has been updated recently.
The Turkish Grand Prix that replaced the Canadian Grand Prix has been cancelled.
The French Grand Prix has been brought forward from 25th-27th June to 18th-20th June.
The weekend of 25th-27th June there will be a second race in Austria and will be called the Styrian Grand Prix.
I hope this is useful.

Exciting race in Hungary.
There is now a gap before the second half of the season kicks off with the Belgian Grand Prix 27th to 29th August.
Couple of provisional changes to the calendar later in the year.
Here they are:
1st to 3rd October Turkish Grand Prix.
19th to 21st November TBC (possibly Qatar)

This season's Japanese Grand Prix, planned for 8th to 10th October 2021, has been cancelled because of a rise in Covid-19 cases in the country.
The decision was taken by the Japanese government.

The next race is the Belgian Grand Prix 27th to 29th August.
There is a chance that Qatar could host a grand prix on 19th to 21st November, replacing the Australian Grand Prix that was postponed and then cancelled.
