F1 2021 Calendar: Portimao and Imola are in line to return to this season’s calendar, one for Vietnam and the other if the Chinese GP is canceled.
The F1 2021 Calendar is facing issues even after the debut Vietnam GP has been canceled. The season-opening Australian GP is expected to be postponed due to logistical constraints arising out of the pandemic. If this happens, then Sakhir in Bahrain will kick off the brand new full season.
The latest is that the Australian GP will be moved to a later date because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Bahrain’s GP could be the F1 2021 season premiere. If that happens, the tests will probably be there too.

Apart from China, there is a possibility of the Chinese Grand Prix getting canceled yet again. This is primarily due to Covid-19 infection rates rising in Europe and adjoining areas. If this happens, then Portugal’s Portimao and Italy’s iconic Imola are in line to replace Vietnam and China.
The Australian leg at Albert Park is likely to be postponed to November. This is when the American legs of Brazil, the USA, and Mexico are scheduled for, followed by the season-ending Saudi Arabian and Abu Dhabi GP. Saudi Arabia will be making its debut in Formula this season, amidst a human rights crisis.
