So Tennis open in Australia put back already. Must put Opening GP in Aus in doubt .....Australian Government insisting on 2 weeks quarantine- easy for a tennis player not so easy for an F1 Team....

Easy may be the wrong word. Easier maybe.... but living restricted to the confines of your hotel room for 2 weeks is not an easy challenge to anyone.

I've said it before. Melbourne won't happen.

I'm waiting for a Sepang (or Kyalami!) announcement for a replacement

No doubt we now know FOM can handle the logistics of a Covid season but surely it is still too early to return to a pre covid type schedule.

Wait untill the teams are eligible for their vaccine shots before scheduling the farthest of the fly aways.

It was great while it lasted, but unfortunately the locals weren’t interested enough and the lack of atmosphere let it down a bit

I would love to have Sepang back. The race there in 2012 was one of my favourite Grands Prix of all time.

Don't forget they're also looking for somewhere to replace Vietnam (listed as TBA or TBD in the 2021 calendar).

I'm not entirely certain Portugal or Imola could afford it this year, but they got a race.

That's because F1 needed to have 17 (if I'm not mistaken) races to fulfil its contractual obligations with broadcasters and tracks in Europe offered a safe option. Next year's different, unless major lockdown happens again.

Yes indeed, but I took the proposal to run in SA to be on the basis that another year of covid would necessitate "emergency" measures. If all is normal of course I'd expect the business model to revert and places like SA etc. won't get a look in.

It's not like there's much atmosphere in Sochi, Bahrain or Abu Dhabi
