2020 Formula 1 calendar update

In 2020, our detailed Grand Prix travel guides were set to cover all 22 races on the planned Formula 1 calendar, including the debut of the Vietnam Grand Prix and the return of the Dutch Grand Prix. Unfortunately, the rapid onset of the coronavirus pandemic has resulted in a very different calendar. The start of the season was delayed by over three months and many races have been held without spectators.

The following races were cancelled and did not take place in 2020: Australian Grand Prix, Vietnam Grand Prix, Chinese Grand Prix, Dutch Grand Prix, Monaco Grand Prix, Azerbaijan Grand Prix, Canadian Grand Prix, French Grand Prix, Singapore Grand Prix, Japanese Grand Prix, United States Grand Prix, Mexico City Grand Prix and Brazilian Grand Prix.

New races have been staged at Mugello (Italy) and Portimao (Portugal), while Imola (Italy), Nurburgring (Germany) and Istanbul Park (Turkey) return to the F1 calendar after after a multi-year absence. The final 2020 Formula 1 calendar comprises 17 races, finishing with back-to-back events at Bahrain International Circuit and the season-ending race at Yas Marina. As the five new/returning races are only expected to be held this year (and with only a limited number of spectators), we have not produced Formula 1 Travel Guides for these events – but you can learn more about visiting these circuits on GPDestinations.com.
