Interlagos expected to return in Formula 1 2021 Calendar

Interlagos expected to make a return to Formula 1 2021 calendar along with Catalunya, though the race at Hanoi is yet to be confirmed.

In a report published by the Race Fans, the Brazilian Grand Prix at Interlagos is set to make a comeback in Formula 1 calendar next year, with the Coronavirus pandemic cancelling the 2020 race.

Though it was also rumoured that there will be no race at Interlagos in 2021, as the current contract was set to expire at the end of the year, and with F1 allegedly being out of favours with the officials at Interlagos, it seemed quite possible to shelve the race.

Adding further, the race track planned to be built at new circuit in the Deodoro area to shift F1 Grand Prix from the current venue has been delayed.

Along with Interlagos, Catalunya also marks its presence, as the 23-race season will require extra effort with minimal exhaustion to contest for the desired position.

Hanoi track not included in the draft

The maiden F1 world championship race at Hanoi was destined to be organized in April, but it got cancelled amidst the rising numbers of Covid-19  and lockdown imposed after that.

However, the new doubt over its future is believed to stem from the recent arrest of Hanoi People’s Committee chairman Duc Chung, who was closely involved in the running of the race.

Though, in this calendar, the report states that the Hanoi track can be added as space has been left for a race at a ‘to be confirmed’ venue following the Chinese Grand Prix.

Meaning, there could be a sincere addition of Hanoi to Formula 1 character, with F1 set to release lengthy Formula 1 calendar for 2021.
