F1: Turkey replaces Canada on 2021 schedule due to travel restrictions
The Turkish Grand Prix, where Lewis Hamilton won the title last year, is back in 2021 following a decision on the Canadian Grand Prix.
There will be no Canadian Grand Prix in Formula One in 2021, with the series instead heading to Turkey in June.
Montreal had been set to host the event across 11-13 June, but travel restrictions relating to the coronavirus pandemic have dictated a change in plans.
The Azerbaijan Grand Prix is scheduled for the week prior and Canada currently imposes a mandatory 14-day quarantine.
Canadian GP also cancelled last season
The covid-19 crisis saw last season's Canadian Grand Prix cancelled, too, but F1 has agreed a two-year extension, meaning the race will return in 2022.
In the meantime, the Turkish Grand Prix has been restored to the calendar.
It was on the slate in 2020 and saw Lewis Hamilton's latest title triumph confirmed with victory in Istanbul in November.
