F1 2021 calendar: Date, start time, TV channel for each Formula 1 race

It’s the light on the 2021 Formula 1 World Championship.

After the coronavirus shortened the 2020 racing schedule, F1 racing is furiously back, with a record-breaking 23 race list in 2021 – a drastic increase from the 17-race sprint that took place in 2020 Sakhir hosts the 2021 season debut, with the Bahraini Grand Prix opening the season.

Imola will make a return to the calendar in 2021 in the second round, less than a year after five drivers failed to finish due to a series of technical failures and an accident that put the riders to the difference. The slate also sees runners jumping across the pond again to compete in two races in North America this year, with each 2020 race taking place in Europe or Asia.
