The Turkish Grand Prix will return to the 2021 F1 calendar this season with the race at Istanbul Park set to take place in early October.
The race will replace the Singapore Grand Prix, which will no longer be taking place this year due to logistical concerns due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Turkish Grand Prix was removed from the calendar originally due to international travel restrictions, but is now down for October 3, on the schedule.
