The 2021 Formula 1 calendar was made official less than a month ago and with great difficulty given the precise moment from a health standpoint. With the dates published, it was hoped that the development of the epidemic would not disrupt the calendar again as it did in 2020. Unfortunately, the first bad news arrived. Seemingly , 2021 Australian Grand Prix can be postponed. The first race of the new F1 season is expected to take place on March 21, but it looks like the date could be postponed later, likely towards the end of the season.
The postponement must be announced at the end of the month. L ‘Australia imposes strict rules To control the spread of the epidemic, specifically these rules that provide for mandatory quarantine, would jeopardize the regular performance of the GP. And with the new English variant of the virus The Australian government likely would not intend to risk it even if Formula 1 adopted strict safety protocols.
If the Australian Grand Prix is truly postponed, the inaugural race for the 2021 Formula 1 season will take place on March 28 in Bahrain. Today it is difficult to understand when to change the location of the Australian appointment because the calendar is so busy. As mentioned at the start, the Melbourne race can be moved at the end of the year. At this point, all that remains is to wait for official news from the organizers.
The hope, of course, is that the 2021 Australian Grand Prix has been postponed not only the first of many given the current development of the pandemic.
