Abu Dhabi will be hosting the 2020 end-of-season race next month, as organisers have pushed ahead with a tumultuous season that was in disarray due to the coronavirus pandemic. The Australian season-opener was cancelled only days before the flag dropped in Melbourne on March 15.
However, the season finally got going and, as Lewis Hamilton closes in on a record seventh Drivers’ Championship title, Yas Island will witness the drama unfold on December 13.
In the calendar published by F1, the Vietnamese Grand Prix date on April 25, has been left blank, leading to questions if it will ever take place after its inaugural race in 2020 was cancelled. Saudi Arabia is scheduled to host its debut GP in the penultimate race on November 28 of a record 23-race schedule.
