Formula One is heading back to Turkey in October.
It has just been confirmed that Istanbul is replacing the Singapore GP, which was cancelled due to Covid-19 restrictions.

GET TO KNOW THE TRACK
Once known as the fearsome Osterreichring, Red Bull Ring was redeveloped after the Austrian energy drinks giant bought the track in 2008.
A £60million revamp shortened the circuit into a fascinating, and quick, 2.683-mile ride.
This circuit is one of the most vertically undulating on the F1 calendar, climbing 65 metres from the start/finish line to the back straight after the tight Turn 3.
Three long straights connect the first sector to a sharp right-hander at Turn 4, before the technical high-speed loop of Turns 6, 7 and 8.
Finally, a lap coming in at only a few seconds over a minute swoops through the double right-hander of Turns 9 and 10.

Hello and welcome to Red Bull Ring, where Max Verstappen is out to press home his world championship lead with a spot of home team advantage this weekend.
The Styrian Grand Prix is the first of a double-header in Spielberg following the abandonment of races in Turkey and Canada.
And this track tends to produce a cracker with Valtteri Bottas and Lewis Hamilton sweeping to victory in last season’s opening weekends.
Verstappen was knocked out of the 2020 opener with an electronics issue, ending his run of consecutive wins here.
The track formerly known as A1 Ring returned to the Formula One calendar in 2014 and awarded victories to Mercedes for four years in a row.
In 2018 and 2019, Verstappen took the win before Bottas picked up his second victory here last year and Hamilton won the subsequent Styrian GP.
With the reigning champ 12 points off the pace atop the drivers’ standings, get ready for a fiercely contested race around the hills of southern Austria.
