The Turkish Grand Prix was added to the Formula One calendar but unfortunately was cancelled only two weeks later, replaced by the second race in Austria.
From June 11th to 13th, Turkey joined the F1 calendar to replace the cancelled Canadian Grand Prix due to travel restrictions in Canada.
However, after Turkey was included in the British "Red List of Countries with High Travel Risks", it ceased operations.
Instead, the Styrian Grand Prix will be held at the Red Bull Ring from June 25th to 27th. The race has been postponed for one week, from June 18th to 20th, which means that the race will now be held for three consecutive weekends: the French Grand Prix at Paul Ricard, the Styrian Grand Prix and Austria on the same track.
Formula One Chairman Stefano Domenicali said: "We have been looking forward to the race in Turkey, but the current travel restrictions mean that we will not be able to get there in June."
F1 again proved its ability to respond quickly to incidents and find solutions. We are very happy to win the Austrian double crown, which means we have 23 games this season.
F1 has many agreements designed to minimize risk of the spread of Covid-19 and claims that 17,000 tests were conducted this year, with only 15 positive cases, accounting for 0.1%.
It said "will continue to work hard to ensure the safety of our employees and the communities we visit".
Several F1 racing experts hope that Turkish free media sports owners will not replace Turkey with another event. The team has discovered a mix of a record 23 race schedule and travel restrictions experienced by employees after returning to the UK.
Some nobles believe that if the sport has never experienced such a long season, then there is no need to participate in so many competitions.
