Formula 1 Statement on 2021 Japanese Grand Prix

Updated on 27/08/2021

Following ongoing discussions with the promoter and authorities in Japan, Formula 1 could not receive the permission for its personnel to enter Japan from the Government by the due date. As a result of this and the ongoing COVID-19 situation in the country the 2021 race in Japan will not take place.

Formula 1 is now working on the details of the revised calendar and will announce the final details in the coming weeks. Formula 1 has proven this year, and in 2020, that we can adapt and find solutions to the ongoing uncertainties and is excited by the level of interest from locations to host Formula 1 events this year and beyond.
