Two races will make its Formula One debut next season – Zandvoort in the Netherlands, and Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. While Zandvoort would be a home race for Red Bull driver Max Verstappen, Saudi Arabia has been embroiled in a social media backlash due to their poor human rights record. The oil-rich country is making an earnest effort to improve themselves, and the hope is of a good penultimate race of the season.
The F1 2020 Calendar saw a lot of additions and deletions due to the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic. Races in Australia and the Americas has to be cancelled, while the likes of Silverstone, Austria and Italy hosted multiple races. It remains to be seen if races which did well this season like Imola or Portimao can stake a claim for the slot left empty by Vietnam.
