Due to the pandemic situation, there are going to be changes with some Grand Prix Races. The Vietnam GP won't have its debut this year, while the Chinese GP was postponed because of the Covid cases in the country.
Moreover, the season didn't start in Australia as it did normally, and that event was moved to November, between the Grand Prix of Brazil and the Saudi Arabian. That's why Bahrain hosted the first race of the year, which many fans have been expecting for a long time.
