Fans feeling the need for speed will have 17 races to get their fix.
While the F1 season officially got underway at the Austrian GP on July 5, the schedule for the remainder of the year is starting to fill out, with 17 races officially on the calendar for the 2020 season, with Abu Dhabi officially ending the year once again.
Originally scheduled to feature a record 22 races, the F1 season was lopped to just 13, given the coronavirus pandemic’s effect on the sports world. Formula 1 wasn’t immune to it, either, with 15 races canceled, postponed or pending for the remainder of the year.
Originally, the Dutch Grand Prix was slated to make a return following an absence of 35 years, but the GP has unfortunately been banged, one of seven races officially canceled on the year. But making its return in the shortened season is the Bahrain Grand Prix at Istanbul Park Circuit, the first time the course is being run since 2011.
Five more races have been postponed, but with no makeup dates, if any, announced.
In its truest form, the 2020 F1 season is going to be a sprint, and everything you need to know about the shortened schedule can be found below.
