Start, Formula 2, Silverstone, 2020

Formula 2 and Formula 3 have confirmed their schedules for next year, which will take place alongside separate rounds of the 2021 F1 calendar.

F1’s two official feeder series will switch from double to triple-header race weekend formats next year. In order to reduce costs among teams which race in both championships, they will no longer appear together at the same F1 rounds.

The F2 season will therefore begin in Bahrain in March and be held over eight rounds, concluding in Abu Dhabi in December. It will only appear at three European venues – Monaco, Silverstone and Monza – and support F1’s new race on the streets of Jeddah in Saudi Arabia.

The F3 season will start two months later than F2’s at the Circuit de Catalunya, and will be held almost entirely on European circuits. Its sole venture beyond the continent will be to the Circuit of the Americas in Texas for its October season finale.

“The provisional 2021 F2 calendar is a mixture of European and overseas circuits, with venues that have always been very popular amongst the drivers and the fans alike,” said F2 and F3 CEO Bruno Michel. “The addition of Jeddah in Saudi Arabia makes it all the more exciting.

“I’m quite interested to see the F3 cars run at Zandvoort and Austin. These are two exciting new venues for us. We will also go back to Le Castellet where we saw great racing in previous years. F3 may no longer be racing on the same weekends as F2, I am pleased to confirm that all F3 events will take place alongside Formula 1.”
