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.
Victoriaâ€™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.”
