21 March at-risk race due to travel restrictionsF1 unveiled an ambitious 23-race schedule for 2020
Because of rising coronavirus issues, the 2021 Australian Grand Prix will have to be postponed. Due to strict travel restrictions, the race is at risk.

A record-breaking 23-race programme was planned by Formula One bosses, but that is now in doubt – although there are hopes of moving the Australian GP to a new date later in the year, with the new opener likely being the Bahrain Grand Prix on March 28. “In 2020, we proved that we can safely return to racing and we have achieved in March what many thought was impossible. We’ve set our calendar for 2021 and are looking forward to F1’s return this March.” Later this month, an official announcement on the race this year is awaited.
