Highlights

  • The 2020 F1 season was originally scheduled to start on March 15
  • The 2020 F1 season is expected to have about 15-18 races
  • FIA is expected to annouce the remaining races in the following weeks

The 2020 Formula 1 season will indeed happen this year with the first eight races confirmed by the organisers. F1 chief executive Chase Carey outlined the first part of a revised calendar of races, all of which will be held in Europe. Originally intended to begin on March 15 in Australia, the world championship was hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic that forced several rounds to be either delayed or cancelled. The revised calendar now marks July 5, 2020, as the start of the 2020 F1 season with the Austrian GP at the Red Bull Ring and will be followed by another round on July 12, 2020, also held at the same circuit. The second round in Austria will be called the Steiermark Grand Prix.
