The Canadian Grand Prix has been canceled again due to the corona pandemic.
Formula 1 does not want to be quarantined for fourteen days upon arrival in Montreal and has canceled the race.
The Turkish Istanbul Park has been designated as a replacement.
The main stumbling point at the Canadian GP was the quarantine obligation that the hundreds of Formula 1 employees wanted to avoid.
They should actually live in isolation for fourteen days, but suggested creating a bubble and testing it continuously.
That was not an option for the health authorities, and the race was canceled.
Formula 1 is now moving to Istanbul Park, keeping the season from 22 races.
Last year, the Turkish circuit also came into the picture when the Formula 1 calendar had to be changed due to the corona pandemic.
Lewis Hamilton then captured his seventh world title there.
It is the second year in a row that the Canadian GP has been removed from the calendar. Last year, the race at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve was also canceled due to the corona pandemic, as did twelve other races, including the GP of the Netherlands at Circuit Zandvoort. The season therefore consisted of only seventeen races.
