Formula 1 has confirmed a change; Canadian GP replaced on F1 2021 calendar by Turkish GP.

F1 says that international travel restrictions in Canada meant it “became impossible for Formula 1 to enter the country without a mandatory 14-day quarantine, leading to the chnage” for the Montreal event.

Turkey returns to the calendar after a thrilling first event in Istanbul in nine years last November, in which Lewis Hamilton was crowned world champion for a record-equalling seventh time.

“While it is disappointing we cannot be in Canada this season we are excited to confirm that Turkey will host a Grand Prix in 2021 after an amazing race last season,” said F1 president and CEO Stefano Domenicali. “I know all our fans are excited by the dramatic start to the season and Turkey is a great circuit that delivers great battles on the track.”

As the new seventh round of the season Turkey will now form a more logistically friendly double header with Azerbaijan, which takes place the week before in Baku.

Designed by the legendary Hermann Tilke, Istanbul Park, the circuit of Turkish Grand Prix, features 14 turns in total but the most notorious among them is perhaps Turn 8, earning itself the nickname of diabolica with its four apexes.

Famous Turn 8 is waiting for; Mercedes (Lewis Hamilton, Valtteri Bottas), Red Bull (Sergio Perez, Max Verstappen), McLaren (Daniel Ricciardo, Lando Norris), Aston Martin (Sebastian Vettel, Lance Stroll), Alpine (Fernando Alonso, Esteban Ocon), Ferrari (Charles Leclerc, Carlos Sainz), AlphaTauri (Pierre Gasly, Yuki Tsunoda), Alfa Romeo (Kimi Raikkonen, Antonio Giovinazzi), Haas (Nikita Mazepin, Mick Schumacher) and Williams (Nicholas Latifi, George Russell), the teams and drivers of Formula 1 2021.

Also, Illusthrone team is so glad to be able to serve through our privileged tailor-made services for F1 teams and guests once more, from airport transfers to close protection; from guidance to helicopter charter in Istanbul, Turkey.
