Formula 1 has announced the revised calendar for the delayed 2020 F1 season. At the moment only the first eight races have been confirmed which consists of the first leg that will be held in Europe. The first eight races will take place in Austria, Hungary, United Kingdom, Spain, Belgium and Italy. The season was delayed due to the growing pandemic of the coronavirus which forced many races to be cancelled like Australia, Monaco, China, and also the Dutch Grand Prix. The season was put on hold as the world tried to gain normalcy in the post-COVID-19 era and we now have confirmation of the first leg of the season and when they will take place.

The first race will be the Austrian Grand Prix which will be held on July 5, followed by the first-ever Steiermark Grand Prix held at the same Red Bull Ring track the following week meaning there will be two races at the same circuit. The next race will be held at the Hungaroring for the Hungarian Grand Prix the week after that.

After a week’s break, F1 will head to Silverstone for the British Grand Prix followed by the “70th Anniversary Grand Prix” both held at the same track.  After Silverstone, the remaining three races will include the Spanish Grand Prix at the Circuit de Catalunya, Barcelona followed by the Belgian Grand Prix at Spa and the eighth race on the Calendar is the Italian Grand Prix at Monza.
