The 2021 Melbourne F1 Grand Prix has been delayed to November.

The Grand Prix will take place on 18-21st of November 2021.

The Victorian Sports Minister said the F1 Melbourne Grand Prix in November would help create the ultimate sports carnival for Victoria.

Victoria’s strict covid rules means the sport was unable to hold the event in March.

The ongoing situation regarding COVID-19 has meant it is not feasible to begin the season in Melbourne,” Formula 1 said in a statement.

“But the good news is that the Australian Grand Prix will now take place from the 18th to the 21st November following an agreement between Formula 1 and the Australian authorities that shows the importance of the race in Australia to Formula 1 and our partners in Melbourne.”
