Turk F1 G.P. Cancelled.

F1 announce race calendar changes as Turkish Grand Prix is cancelled​

Turkish GP cancelled six weeks after F1 put it on the calendar.​


Formula One has announced they are to cancel the Turkish Grand Prix, which was due to take place over the weekend of June 11-13 this season, due to new COVID-19 travel restrictions being announced, instead being replaced by a second race in Austria.

Formula One say the weekend will now remain free, with the French Grand Prix moving a week earlier than originally planned to June 18-20 with the Styrian Grand Prix in Austria added to the calendar on June 25-27.

That creates a new France-Styria-Austria triple header, with the Austrian Grand Prix staying in its original July 2-4 slot, keeping to the original 23 races planned for the 2021 season.

Amazing. . . .they stop the F1🏎️ where each driver is totally wrapped into a rocket type pod but they were happy to do the Cycling Marathon a couple of weeks back where all these sweaty huffing and puffing MAMILs were spreading hot breath everywhere along the roads and through towns and villages.

just saying. . . . 🚲

Oops! That was a misheard bit of information!

It seems (according to the BBC) that there will be a second Austrian race this year due to cancelling Istanbul.

This means there will now be races on three consecutive weekends - the French Grand Prix at Paul Ricard, followed by the Styrian Grand Prix and then the Austrian Grand Prix, both at the same track. The French F! has been moved to 18-20 June and the Styrian F1 is 25-27 June.

The Turkey weekend slot will remain free.
