Formula One: Australian Grand Prix set to be cancelled again

The lucrative race in Melbourne, one of the highlights of the Australian sporting calendar, was called off at the last minute in March 2020, just as the Covid-19 pandemic was taking hold. Given the quick turnaround between races on the F1 calendar, any quarantine period in Melbourne would force drivers to miss other races. The preceding Brazilian Grand Prix takes place on 7 November, with the race weekend at Albert Park to start on 19 November. Dan Andrews, the premier of Victoria, said holding major sporting events like the Grand Prix was ‚Äúvery challenging‚ÄĚ given Australia‚Äôs slow vaccine roll out.
