The Turkish GP has been moved by one week to October 10, but most likely that race will be canceled after all.

Turkey is on the United Kingdom's red list, which means that the staff of the British teams must be quarantined for ten days when they return.

The Italian Mugello is then the possible replacement.

The Mexican Grand Prix (November 7) and the race in São Paulo, Brazil (November 14) have also been moved by a week.

The gap on November 21, caused by the cancellation of the Australian GP, ​​has not yet been filled.

Most likely, Formula 1 will then settle in Doha.

The Losail International Circuit in Qatar is considered the main contender.

A Formula 1 race has never been held on the circuit, which is mainly known for MotoGP.

This Formula 1 season was originally supposed to consist of a record number of 23 races, but that will eventually become 22. This makes it still the longest season in the history of the premier class.

The current record stands at 21 races, which were set in 2018 and 2019.

The Australian GP disappeared from the calendar earlier this year due to the local situation surrounding the corona virus.

It is not yet certain whether the races in Mexico and Brazil can continue, because those countries are on the United Kingdom's red list.

Also in Austin, where the American Grand Prix is ​​held, the corona situation is not rosy.
