Turkish Grand Prix to replace Canadian Grand Prix on 2021 F1 calendar amid rise in coronavirus cases

It is the second successive year the Montreal event has been cancelled because of the coronavirus pandemic. Turkey returns for a second successive year as a stand-in race because of disruption caused by the pandemic. F1 president Stefano Domenicali said: “While it is disappointing we cannot be in Canada this season, we are excited to confirm that Turkey will host a grand prix in 2021 after an amazing race last season. This year, F1 has planned a record 23-race schedule with all the usual events, and the addition of a new event in Saudi Arabia, but the abandonment of Canada raises further questions about other long-haul races later in the season.
