Is this the new date of the Australian Grand Prix?

Lawrence Stroll reported last week that the Australian Grand Prix is unlikely to take place on the scheduled date of 21 March. According to the Australian news, a new date has now been set for November.

New date for Australia

According to 10 News First Melbourne, the Australian Grand Prix will not be held on 21 March, but on 21 November. This would mean that the Australian Grand Prix will be the third last race of the season.

According to the German media SpeedWeek.com, China also has problems organising a Grand Prix in 2021. Both countries have strict rules when it comes to entering the country because of the coronavirus.

Start of season in Bahrain

People who want to enter both Australia and China must first be quarantined for two weeks. This makes Bahrain seem like the ideal start of the season.
