F1 have announced a new revised calendar for the rest of the 2021 season, with the calendar losing a race to make it 22 events rather than the proposed 23. This number is still record-breaking for F1 though!
Key changes to the calendar include moving the Turkey date from the start of October and bringing it forward a week to the 8th-10th of October. Mexico will also be the start of a new triple-header.
