F1 Considers Second 2021 Race for U.S. Following Singapore Grand Prix Cancellation
Icon SportswireGetty Images
- The F1 Singapore Grand Prix has been canceled, leading to speculation that a second race in the United States could make sense to Formula 1.
- The F1 race at Austin, Texas, is scheduled for Oct. 24. The Oct. 17 date on the F1 schedule is currently open.
- Indianapolis is also rumored to be in the discussion as a possible site for a Formula 1 make-up race this fall.
Singapore’s loss could be a gain for the United States.
More to the point, with the announcement that the F1 Singapore Grand Prix has been canceled for 2021, an opening has popped up that could mean a second race in 2021 for the United States.
Formula 1, which is determined to get in 23 races, continues to struggle with its calendars because of the COVID-19 pandemic and travel restrictions and quarantine requirements in multiple countries. It is far more difficult this year than last because of the constantly-shifting rules and the paperwork involved in moving the F1 circus from country to country.
“We thought that this year would be tough at the start of the year and then get easier as the situation improved,” said F1’s sporting director Steve Nielsen, “But the reality is that it is getting more and more difficult.”
This is because of the different variants that mean that countries are protecting their borders from foreign visitors. Most of the races now and being run only thanks to government exemptions.
The one place where restrictions are more limited is he United States, where things are returning to normal more rapidly than elsewhere, even if deaths are still running at more than 500 a day. In Australia, for example, the whole state of Victoria (where Melbourne is located) was locked down last week because of 60 cases. You can all it over-reaction if you like, but Australia’s death total in the last 15 months has been only 910 people.
However, it means that the rescheduled Australian Grand Prix and several other races probably won’t happen. F1 is particularly worried about Australia, Brazil and Japan. And there are also question about Mexico. There are races in China and Turkey waiting in the wings to step in if gaps appear, but that still will not get the sport to 23 races.
In Baku, site of this weekend’s F1 Azerbaijan Grand Prix there were rumors that we might see two races this year in the United States, as a result of the ongoing problems. One suggestion is that F1 could go to Indianapolis and use the road course, while another idea is to have two races back-to-back at Circuit of the Americas in Austin.
F1 chief executive Stefano Domenicali would not confirm nor deny the stories.
“We’ll see what happens,” he says. “Things are changing all the time.”
The F1 United States Grand Prix at Austin is scheduled for Oct. 24. Singapore was slated for Oct. 3. Japan is currently scheduled for Oct. 10.
Oct. 17 is currently an open weekend on the F1 schedule.
The appetite to go to Indy is not great in F1 circles. It is not a destination city in the same way as Miami or Las Vegas, but if there is the possibility to have a race and there is money to pay for it – there are no free races this year – then F1 will certainly look at it.
The sport is keen to embrace those who have had their interest in F1 sparked by the Netflix Series “F1 Drive to Survive” and want to know more about F1. This new interest is being seen in F1 viewing figures in the U.S., which are on the rise.

Singapore GP cancelled for second year in a row

The Singapore Formula One Grand Prix has been cancelled for the second year in a row due to the COVID-19 pandemic, race organisers said in a statement on Friday.
The BBC and Sky television had earlier reported the Oct. 1-3 night race at the Marina Bay circuit was off due to immigration restrictions.
“To cancel the event for a second year is an incredibly difficult decision, but a necessary one in light of the prevailing restrictions for live events in Singapore,” said Colin Syn, deputy chairman of Singapore GP Pte Ltd.
“We would not be able to deliver a full event experience fans have come to expect over the years, while safeguarding the health and safety of our fans, contractors, volunteers and staff.”
The race attracts tens of thousands of fans from around the world, with concerts and other entertainment around the sidelines.
Tickets for this year’s race had yet to go on sale.
Singapore follows Canada off the calendar and is unlikely to be the last to fall victim of the pandemic with Japan, Brazil, Mexico and Australia all looking uncertain from the original list of 23 rounds.
Australia has already been rescheduled to November but travel to the country is heavily restricted.
A Formula One spokesman said the sport had alternatives to fill the gap.
“We continue to work with all promoters during this fluid time and have plenty of options to adapt if needed,” he said.
Turkey, which had been due to replace Canada but was then also scrapped, would be a possible stand-in with talk also of China making a return and a second potential race in the United States.
Austin, Texas, is due to host the U.S. Grand Prix in late October but could step up with a double-header although there has also been speculation that Indianapolis is under consideration.
That might appeal to the sport’s U.S.-based commercial rights holders Liberty Media.
Formula One faces a separate challenge with the Dutch authorities telling Formula One that all working staff attending the race at Zandvoort in September must be vaccinated against COVID-19.
Red Bull team boss Christian Horner said that could pose a problem for younger team members still waiting for a jab.

Singapore GP cancelled, second US race among alternatives · RaceFans
The Singapore Grand Prix will not take place for the second year in a row due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The race’s cancellation was confirmed in a statement issued by the promoters on Friday.
“We understand that our fans were looking forward to another edition of the Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix” said the deputy chairman of Singapore GP Pte Ltd Colin Syn.
“To cancel the event for a second year is an incredibly difficult decision, but a necessary one in light of the prevailing restrictions for live events in Singapore.”
“We would not be able to deliver a full event experience [that] fans have come to expect over the years, while safeguarding the health and safety of our fans, contractors, volunteers and staff,” he added. “Ultimately, we have to be responsible, cautious and prudent as safety is our number one concern.
“We are grateful for the support of Singaporeans, stakeholders and local businesses who have helped contribute to the success of the night race. Needless to say, we look forward to the safe return of Formula 1 racing against the spectacular Marina Bay skyline.”
2021 F1 calendarNo tickets for this year’s race, which was due to take place on October 3rd, had been put on sale. The promoter said all ticket holders for the 2020 race who deferred their attendance to this year will receive full refunds.
RaceFans understands Formula 1 is considering a number of possible replacements for the race. One option begin considered, in order to ensure the 2021 F1 calendar retains all 23 scheduled rounds, is an extra race in the United States of America.
A second US race would most likely take place at the Circuit of the Americas, which is already due to hold one round on October 24th. The additional round would take place a week before that. This solution would involve moving Japan’s round of the championship forward by a week into the slot originally held by Singapore.

Another alternative could see the Chinese Grand Prix, which was originally due to take place in April before it was cancelled, being reinstated to the calendar in place of Singapore’s round. This could also involve an exchange of dates with Japan’s race.
A further possibility could see the race move to Turkey, which held a round of the world championship last year. The Istanbul Park circuit was previously slated as a replacement for the cancelled Canadian Grand Prix this year, but was pulled from the calendar after the British government imposed new travel restrictions on the country.

F1’s Singapore GP cancelled for second year in a row
you by the
2021 race was to be the last under a four-year extension signed in 2017.
- Posted: June 7 2021
- By: Tom King
- Title sponsor last month reported a loss of US$3.2 billion
- F1 considering a number of replacements for the race
Formula One’s Singapore Grand Prix has been cancelled due to safety and logistic concerns connected to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
The race was scheduled for 3rd October and would have served as the 16th round of the global motorsport series’ 2021 championship.
According to BBC Sport, Formula One is considering Turkey, China and a second race at Austin in the USA as replacements for the Singapore event.
In a statement on behalf of race organisers Singapore GP Pte Ltd, deputy chairman Colin Syn said: “Given the evolving and unpredictable pandemic situation around the world, it has become increasingly challenging to stage a complex multi-faceted event for tens of thousands of local and overseas spectators.
“We understand that our fans were looking forward to another edition of the Formula One Singapore Grand Prix. To cancel the event for a second year is an incredibly difficult decision, but a necessary one in light of the prevailing restrictions for live events in Singapore.”
The organisers also said any decision to continue hosting the Singapore Grand Prix beyond this year will rest on the direction of Formula One and not the pandemic.
Ong Ling Lee, director of sports for the Singapore Tourism Board, added: “Since 2008, the Formula One race has generated benefits for both Singapore and the Formula One franchise, with many local businesses actively involved in race preparations and operations. We are working closely with Singapore GP, Formula One and other government agencies to determine the future of the race.”
Last year’s night race was also cancelled due to the Covid-19 outbreak, while this year’s event was scheduled to be the last under a four-year extension signed in 2017.
National carrier Singapore Airlines signed on as the title sponsor of the Singapore race in 2014, and has since renewed the deal every two years.
According to The Straits Times, Singapore Airlines’ deal for the first two years was believed to be worth between US$10 million and US$15 million annually, and reported at US$10 million a year for the next two years. The value of the 2018/2019 contract has not been disclosed.
The event’s title sponsor last month reported a loss of US$3.2 billion, its second consecutive yearly deficit. Without a domestic market, Singapore Airlines has been one of the hardest hit carriers in terms of passenger traffic.
The last Singapore race in 2019 pulled in a three-day total attendance of 268,000 fans, the second highest attendance after the 300,000 that attended the first race in 2008.
As the only night race and Asia’s only Formula One street race, the Singapore Grand Prix has grown to become a marquee event on the race calendar.
Tickets for this year’s race had not been released for sale, pending the decision on the event’s feasibility.
F1 race in Singapore canceled over pandemic concerns
Published 1:30 p.m. ET June 4, 2021
SINGAPORE (AP) — Formula One on Friday canceled the Singapore Grand Prix for the second year in a row because of the coronavirus pandemic.
The street course race in Singapore under floodlights had been scheduled for Oct. 3.
Singapore has largely relied on tight entry restrictions and contact tracing to keep infections low during the pandemic. Organizers said they would not be able to deliver “a full event experience fans have come to expect over the years, while safeguarding the health and safety of our fans, contractors, volunteers and staff.”
“We understand that our fans were looking forward to another edition of the Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix,” said Colin Syn, deputy chairman of the Singapore GP. “To cancel the event for a second year is an incredibly difficult decision, but a necessary one in light of the prevailing restrictions for live events in Singapore.
The pandemic has already caused numerous changes to the 2021 calendar. The season-opener in Australia was postponed from March to November and the Canadian Grand Prix set for June 13 was canceled. Two other races in China and Turkey were postponed indefinitely.
As speculation mounted earlier Friday about Singapore’s imminent removal from the schedule, reports indicated F1 might schedule a second event in the United States this season. The series is scheduled to race at Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas, on Oct. 24.
The 2021 Singapore Grand Prix was scheduled to race Oct. 3 between the Russian and Japanese grand prix. The current schedule has a two-week window between the Oct. 10 race in Japan and the Oct. 24 race in Austin. After the Texas race, F1 travels to Mexico City the following week.
COTA Chairman Bobby Epstein told The Associated Press discussions of a second race in the U.S., or a second race at COTA, are “paddock rumors.”
Indianapolis Motor Speedway hosted F1 from 2000 to 2007 and new track owner Roger Penske wants the series back at the speedway. Penske told AP “we’re not in any position at the moment” to host F1 in 2021.
Indianapolis last weekend hosted 135,000 spectators for the Indianapolis 500 for the largest sporting event in the world since the start of the pandemic.
In the pandemic-shortened 2020 season, Formula One held consecutive races at Austria’s Red Bull Ring, Silverstone in England and the Bahrain International Circuit. In each case, the season calendar was arranged to allow two weeks at each track.

Report – Singapore Grand Prix cancelled for 2021
The Singapore Grand Prix will not be returning to the Formula 1 calendar for 2021 after all with the event cancelled for another year.
This news was reported by BBC Sport, who state that Formula 1 bosses are now assessing their options to replace the race, which was set to be Round 16 of the Formula 1 season.
Singapore has long since enforced strict rules on immigration, as well as their detailed test-and-trace system, and so the Singapore authorities have ruled that it is not possible to hold a Grand Prix this season.
Shortly after official confirmation arrived that there would be no 2021 Singapore Grand Prix.
“To cancel the event for a second year is an incredibly difficult decision, but a necessary one in light of the prevailing restrictions for live events in Singapore,” the statement read.
“Ultimately, we have to be responsible, cautious and prudent as safety is our number 1 concern.”
One of the potential replacement options which was mentioned recently was Mugello, with mayor of Scarperia and San Piero Federico Ignesti, the municipality where Mugello Circuit is located, confirming that the venue was “ready” to negotiate with Liberty Media if they wanted to open talks.
2020’s Tuscan Grand Prix marked Formula 1’s first visit to the track, a chaotic race from which Lewis Hamilton emerged victorious.
BBC Sport do not though list Mugello in their pool of potential replacements.

Instead, they state that the Turkish Grand Prix is one of the races being considered. This was initially confirmed as the replacement for the cancelled Canadian Grand Prix, but the Turkish GP then met the same fate shortly after due to rising Covid cases in the country.
Another potential replacement listed is the Chinese Grand Prix, which was cancelled for 2020 and then did not feature on the provisional 2021 calendar.
A double-header at the Circuit of the Americas in Texas is also mentioned, and this is the option which BBC Sport say is “especially appealing” to Liberty Media.
“If that happens, the first race would likely be on 15-17 October, the weekend before the US Grand Prix, which is on 22-24 October,” the report states.

90,000 Tour to Formula 1 in Singapore, prices for 2021
In September, the Formula 1 Night Race will burst into Singapore again with a breakneck speed, slowing down only on corners (and there are 23 of them on the Singapore track!), Attracting crowds of fans to the place of the event, camera lenses and tons of festive events!
Tour dates in 2021: October 3rd. Due to restrictions in 2021, the Formula 1 Grand Prix in Singapore will be held without spectators!
Tour cost: on request.
The first Formula 1 Night Race was held in Singapore in 2008. Its uniqueness was that the race took place at night on the roads of Singapore, i.e. in the very center of the city.
The spectacle was truly amazing. The energy of the fans, the roar of the turbines, the magnificent lighting of the track, the festive atmosphere, live music concerts in between races, the fans sitting here on the grass surrounded by a dazzling night city, eternal summer – for 3 days of the race, Singapore turned into a place of mass a place where people from different countries of the world gathered to watch the next arrival of their idols.
Conversations did not stop – enthusiastic faces, smiles, fun, excitement – Singapore “buzzed” not only from the frantic speed of Ferraris rushing along its tracks – it “buzzed” from the frenzied energy of fans, which suddenly burst into the life of the city for 3 days . ..
Formula 1 Night Race Singapore
Yes, it was a global event. Running a race under a dark sky with daylight on the race track against the backdrop of major landmarks and Singapore’s tallest skyscrapers was an outstanding idea, and the race was a worldwide success with three awards at once.
In September, the Formula 1 Night Race will break into Singapore again at breakneck speed! Ferrari will again accelerate through the city streets of Singapore under the light of modern searchlights at speeds up to 300 km per hour! More than 40 international celebrations will take place in Singapore during the race, and 60 bars and restaurants on the race grounds will offer all fans entertainment for all tastes.
This year, the race organizers will make it even more interesting and exciting, as even minor shortcomings of the previous performance will be corrected.Some sections of the route will be expanded, and the first, second and third main turns will undergo reconstruction, significantly expanding their safety zones. Thanks to this, the riders will allow themselves to take more risks, which means more overtaking to the joyful cries of fans jumping from the stands.
Formula 1 Night Race Singapore
General track information:
- Track length: 5067 km.
- Number of laps: 61.
- There are 23 turns on the track (13 left, 10 right).
- Estimated lap time – 1 minute and 30 seconds.
- Speed in the slowest corner – 75 km / h, in the fastest – 250 km / h.
This year, the race organizers are offering all fans a large selection of tickets. Basically, the price of race tickets varies depending on the viewing area of the track on which the races will take place.
Below is a brief description of the grandstands with the prices of admission tickets.
Remember: no matter what tickets you buy, you will have a lot of unforgettable emotions! Each ticket provides access to the race territory for three days of the race.
Formula 1 race map showing stands
Very active action will unfold from this stand. There will be an opportunity to see cars entering several corners of the track at once, as well as an active struggle for leadership, since it is on this section of the track that the riders are provided with the best opportunities for overtaking.
It is here that you can personally see how sharply and quickly the speed drops from 300 kilometers per hour to 110 kilometers per hour.
The grandstand is located in the most historic and central part of the city – right along the Padang field, where the independence of Singapore was proclaimed.
Spectators will be able to see the cars, picking up speed sharply, exiting the corner at number 9 and speeding along the building of the former City Court and the building of the City Council.
Also, this grandstand is in maximum proximity to the entertainment that will be presented during the race of the Formula 1 race. Countless outlets offering a huge selection of food, drinks and souvenirs can all be found here.
ESPLANADE WATERFRONT GRANDSTAND
This grandstand will be located along the Esplanade Theater and Concert Complex, giving all spectators unhindered access to all the festive performances that will take place nearby in the open air.
Excellent visibility of cars exiting turn 16 and accelerating towards Marina Waterfront, entering the next turn.
Also on this section of the track, the racers will demonstrate the excellent operation of the braking systems on their cars – here they will have to brake frequently and sharply!
This podium will offer night views of the business center with its majestic skyscrapers that adorn all Singapore tourist photos, as well as Marina Bay, where the first casino in the city-state will appear.
Despite the fact that this part of the track is not considered the “fastest” section – last year it was here that Nelson Pickuet crashed his car.
More Formula 1 food, beverage and souvenir outlets will be installed in this stand area.
These tickets offer access to the race area without being tied to a specific stand.
These are the so-called “walking tickets” that allow you to move along the track, choosing the best place for yourself to see the race.
Attention: in some areas of the route, access with such tickets is limited.
Formula 1 Night Race Singapore
Officially: Formula 1 canceled the Singapore stage for 2021 | | Queen of Motorsport
Singapore Formula 1 Grand Prix will not take place for the second year in a row as the World Cup organizers insist that immigration restrictions imposed under the protocols against the COVID-19 coronavirus mean this is no longer possible.
However, this world championship is looking for alternative locations to fill the Singapore race spot on the 2021 calendar, which was originally scheduled for October 3rd.
Singapore, which canceled the 2020 phase, has imposed strict immigration restrictions in hopes of limiting the spread of the coronavirus, especially from external sources, as domestic transmission remains incredibly low, with an average of 20 new cases daily. Thus, the restrictions for hundreds of Formula 1 employees are unlikely to be relaxed.
F1 is considering several alternatives to replace the race, including a race in Turkey. Istanbul Park was supposed to host the stage on June 13, but it was dropped after the country was added to the UK red list.As a consequence, the French race was postponed one week in advance and the second Austrian race was added to the calendar.
However, it is hoped that the number of cases will be reduced by October, allowing the country to rejoin the calendar after a successful return in 2020.
If this is not possible, Formula 1 could consider hosting a second race in the United States, with race weekends in a row on the Circuit of the Americas on October 17 and 24. Liberty Media, which promotes sports in the US, has announced a 10-year contract for the Miami Grand Prix starting in 2022.
F1 has not traveled outside Europe or the Middle East since the start of the coronavirus pandemic. The stage in Japan, slated for October 10, remains under threat, although officials in the country are currently focused on organizing the upcoming Olympic Games.
Covid-19 cases remain high in Mexico and Brazil, but the authorities in these countries are known to be keen to welcome the World Cup and keep personnel away from the population.
Brazil hosted the upcoming America’s Cup last minute this week, as the country struggles to cope with a sharp rise in the number of cases.Australia’s tough travel restrictions mean the delayed November phase remains in jeopardy.
