The calendar needs to be signed off on by the World Motorsports Council and it is also dependent on what happens with the ever evolving COVID 19 Global Pandemic.

Speaking about the calendar, Formula One CEO Chase Carey said:

We are pleased to announce the 2021 Formula 1 provisional calendar after extensive conversations with
our promoters, the teams and the FIA. We are planning for 2021 events with fans that provide an
experience close to normal and expect our agreements to be honoured. We have proven that we can safely
travel and operate our races and our promoters increasingly recognise the need to move forward and
manage the virus. In fact, many hosts actually want to use our event as a platform to show the world they
are moving forward. We are delighted to see Saudi Arabia become part of the schedule and are equally
excited to return to the venues we hoped to race at in 2020. We want to thank all our promoters and
partners for their ongoing enthusiasm and collaboration and look forward to giving our fans an exciting
season on the track.”
