F1 CEO Chase Carey said in the statement that a lot of work has gone into getting the season off the ground. “In the past weeks we have been working tirelessly with all our partners, the FIA and the teams to create a revised opening 2020 calendar allowing us to restart racing in the safest possible way,” Carey said. “We are pleased to be able to set out our opening eight race calendar today and look forward to publishing our full calendar in the coming weeks. I want to thank every promoter and partner for their support and ongoing commitment to Formula One. While we currently expect the season to commence without fans at our races we hope that over the coming months the situation will allow us to welcome them back once it is safe to do, but we know the return of Formula One will be a welcome boost to sports fans around the world.”

The eight races will all take place in Europe and the schedule will look as follows:

  • July 3-5: Austrina Grand Prix, Red Bull Ring (Austria)
  • July 10-12: Steiermark Grand Prix, Red Bull Ring (Austria)
  • July 17-19: Hungarian Grand Prix, Hungaroring (Hungary)
  • July 31-August 2: British Grand Prix, Silverstone (Great Britain)
  • August 7-9: Formula One 70th Anniversary Grand Prix, Silverstone (Great Britain)
  • August 14-16: Spanish Grand Prix, Circuit de Catalunya (Spain)
  • August 28-30: Belgian Grand Prix, Spa-Francorchamps (Belgium)
  • September 4-6: Italian Grand Prix, Monza (Italy)

The rest of the calendar is expected to be revealed in the coming weeks, but it is expected Bahrain and Abu Dhabi will be the last two events of the season.
