Formula 1 has announced the final four rounds of the 2020 F1 calendar, including a return to Turkey and back-to-back races in Bahrain.
Today’s statement from Formula 1 also confirmed that the Chinese Grand Prix will not take place this season. An official statement about the cancellation of the inaugural Vietnam Grand Prix has not yet been made, though the race is not expected to be held this year and thus today’s calendar can be considered the final version. The announcement from Formula 1 finalizes a radically different calendar to the 22 rounds planned prior to the global coronavirus pandemic, including five new destinations and three back-to-back weekends at the same circuits.
After the Turkish Grand Prix on November 13-15, the 2020 F1 calendar will conclude with three races in the Middle East. Bahrain International Circuit will host back-to-back race weekends; the 2020 Bahrain Grand Prix on November 27-29 and the 2020 Sakhir Grand Prix on December 4-6. It has been speculated that the second race in Bahrain will run on an alternate layout of Bahrain International Circuit, though details have not yet been announced. The 2020 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix retains its place as the final race of the season on December 11-13, two weeks later than originally planned.
