March 28, 2021 - December 12, 2021 - The 72nd Formula One World Championship now commences with the Bahrain Grand Prix and concludes in Abu Dhabi in December. The Australian and Chinese Grand Prix have been postponed due to Covid restrictions.

The Formula One World Championship, the premier class of motor racing, is organised by the governing body of international motorsport, the Federation Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA).

British driver Lewis Hamilton will surpass the record of Michael Schumacher if he secures his eighth Formula 1 championship title.

The schedule comprises 22 Grands Prix around the world but retains a spare date on May 2 for a potential 23rd race after the Vietnamese GP was omitted from the calendar following the arrest of a key race official on corruption charges. The case is not related to his involvement in the Grand Prix.
