Update: On Aug28, the FIA published an update to this season’s calendar: the next 3 races (Netherlands, Italy, Russia) are unchanged; Turkey moves from Oct03 to Oct10 (which was Japan’s slot); USA remains as-is; Mexico moves from Oct31 to Nov07; Brazil moves from Nov07 to Nov14; the Nov21 weekend still says To Be Confirmed but the rumours are this will be Qatar; Saudi Arabia and Abu Dhabi are unchanged.

  1. As expected, the FIA announced “Qatar to join F1 calendar in 2021”.
    “Qatar’s Losail International Circuit will hold its first ever Formula 1 Grand Prix on November 19-21, with the country set to host the 20th event of the 2021 season, as well as signing an additional 10-year deal to host F1 from 2023.”

    1. Thanks to the BBC for explaining “Qatar will not host an F1 race in 2022 to focus on staging the Fifa World Cup.” “This year’s Qatar Grand Prix will be a floodlit night race starting at 18:00 local time.”
      Unsurprisingly there’s some concern about adding Qatar to the calendar:

      Amnesty International said Qatar’s human rights record was “extremely troubling” and in a statement urged F1 to “insist that all contracts pertaining to this race contain stringent labour standards across all supply chains”.
      It added that “drivers and their teams should be prepared to speak out about human rights in Qatar in the lead-up to the race, doing their bit to break the spell of sportwashing and image-management”.

      In response to Amnesty, F1 said: “For decades Formula 1 has worked hard be a positive force everywhere it races, including economic, social, and cultural benefits.
      “Sports like Formula 1 are uniquely positioned to cross borders and cultures to bring countries and communities together to share the passion and excitement of incredible competition and achievement.”
      “We take our responsibilities on rights very seriously and set high ethical standards for counterparties and those in our supply chain, which are enshrined in contracts, and we pay close attention to their adherence.”
