Formula One has just announced its calendar of events for next year.

There will be 23 grand prix races, the longest season in Formula One history.

The first is scheduled to be held in Melbourne, Australia, on 21 March and the last in Abu Dhabi on 6 December. Melbourne plans to hold the race with fans.

Saudi Arabia will make its debut with a street race in Jeddah, which is scheduled for 28 November.

The inaugural race in Hanoi, Vietnam, was a casualty of the Coronavirus Pandemic in April this year, and will not now take place next year, as rescheduled for 25 April, because one the key race officials, involved in staging the event, has been arrested on corruption charges! This race will be held instead in Europe; Italy, Portugal and Turkey being the main contenders to fill the gap.

The calendar, of course, is subject to there being no further Pandemic disruptions.

Certainly, something to look forward to in the New Year and let us see whether Lewis Hamilton can gain another World Title in the new season.
