Calendar changes

  • The Finnish Grand Prix was reintroduced to the calendar after a 38-year absence. The venue hosting the round will be the new Kymi Ring, instead of the Tampere Circuit used in 1962 and 1963 or the Imatra Circuit which hosted the round until 1982. The Finnish Grand Prix had been included on the 2020 calendar, but the inaugural race was cancelled in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • The Czech Republic Grand Prix was initially left off the provisional calendar, as the circuit requires mandatory resurfacing for safety compliance, and it was unclear if the necessary work could be completed in time for its typical schedule date in early August. The 11th round of the championship was therefore left open as provisionally pending.[43] On 8 December 2020, Brno city councillors announced that they would opt out of the 2021 calendar, citing financial difficulties due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[44] It will mark the first absence of a Grand Prix in Brno since 1992. The mayor of Brno hopes for the return of the championship in 2022.[45]

Calendar changes as a reaction to COVID-19 pandemic

  • With the uncertainty of the development of the COVID-19 pandemic, championship organizer Dorna elected in November 2020 to nominate three "Reserve Grand Prix Venues" which could be used in the event that local virus containment measures or regulations force the cancellation of a planned Grand Prix.[46]
  • On 22 January 2021, Dorna announced a significant update to the provisional calendar including the following changes:[24]
    • The Argentine and American Grands Prix would be postponed due to the COVID-19 situation in both countries, with potential rescheduling for the final quarter of 2021.
    • A double-header would open the season in Qatar on 28 March and 4 April, followed by Portugal as the third round.
    • The provisionally pending race created by the absence of the Czech Grand Prix was removed.
    • The potential Russian Grand Prix was removed from the reserve list, leaving Indonesia as the sole Reserve Grand Prix Venue.
