    The record-breaking 23-race Formula One calendar released for 2021 seemed incredibly ambitious when it was announced in October, and now it appears that those fears are going to be borne out. Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) president Jean Todt has now admitted that the season is probably going to be rearranged. Actually, about half of it. Half of it is probably going to be rearranged.

    The ImolaGP in the 2021 F1 calendar is expected to be announced tomorrow at 9 am. Italian reports say that it's going to be the second race in the calendar, so F1 would return to Europe immediately after the BahrainGP.

    Formula 1 has announced the return of Imola to the 2021 calendar after being forced to postpone races in Australia and China, with Melbourne shifting to a November date slot.

    F1 unveiled a 23-race calendar for 2021 in November that was due to start in Australia, but has been forced to make some early changes due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

    It emerged in recent weeks that Australia would not be able to go ahead on 21 March due to the ongoing travel restrictions, while the promoter of the Chinese Grand Prix revealed on Saturday it was seeking a date change.

    F1 issued an updated version of the 2021 calendar on Tuesday morning, confirming Imola will host the second round of the season on 18 April.

    The former host track of the San Marino Grand Prix staged its first F1 race in 14 years last November after being added to the heavily-revised, European-centric schedule.

    The success of the event prompted Imola officials to seek a deal for 2021, with a gap being opened up on the provisional calendar after the planned race in Vietnam had to be abandoned.

    Both Imola and Portimao were seeking to replace Vietnam, but the postponement of both Australia and China has opened up places for both tracks to join the 2021 schedule.

    Although Portimao has not been announced by F1 yet, the track is expected to host a grand prix this year and take the slot vacated by Vietnam as the third round of the season.

    This TBC slot now lies on 2 May, one week before the Spanish Grand Prix in Barcelona.

    Australia has been postponed until 21 November, with its addition to the calendar forcing a number of date changes for the closing stages of the season.

    Brazil has been brought forward by one week to 7 November, creating a third triple-header on the calendar as it follows races in the United States and Mexico.

    The inaugural Saudi Arabian Grand Prix has been pushed back one week to 5 December, while the Abu Dhabi season finale will now take place on 12 December.

    While F1 is working with the promoter of the China race to find a new date, it is understood this would only go ahead if another race is cancelled as the calendar would not rise as high as 24 races.

    "Due to the ongoing travel restrictions in place the 2021 Chinese Grand Prix will not take place on its planned date," a statement from F1 reads.

    "Discussions with the promoter and authorities in China are ongoing with the potential to reschedule the race later in the season if possible.

    "With the scheduled date not being feasible for China, Imola will return to the Formula 1 calendar on the revised date of 18 April.

    Welcome back Imola in spring! And Oz at the end of the season. Like the good old days.

    No big loss if China cancelled.

    Why is even China up there. They should not go back there anymore, considering they started this virus nonsense and paralyzed the whole world.
