Instead, another stage will be held in Austria.

The Formula 1 World Championship in Turkey has been cancelled. This was reported by the press service of "Formula 1".

The Turkish Grand Prix was scheduled for June 11-13 in Istanbul. At the end of April, he replaced the event in Canada, which was canceled due to the coronavirus for the second year in a row. In connection with the cancellation of the Turkish stage, it was decided to hold the French Grand Prix a week earlier (June 18-20), and in Austria two stages in a row will be held (June 25-27 - Styrian Grand Prix, July 2-4 - Grand Prix Austria).

"We were all looking forward to racing in Turkey, but the current travel restrictions mean we won't be able to race there in June," said the F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali. “Formula 1 has shown once again that it can react quickly and find solutions, and we are delighted that we will have two Grands Prix in Austria, which means that there will be 23 races left in our season.”

“I want to thank the promoter and the Turkish authorities for their efforts in recent weeks, as well as the promoters from France and Austria for their speed, flexibility and enthusiasm in implementing this decision,” added Stefano Domenicali.

Previously, Great Britain included Turkey in the red list of countries. Upon returning from there, you must spend 10 days of quarantine in a special British hotel at your own expense. Seven out of ten championship teams are based in the UK, in which case they would not be able to get to the next round in France, which was scheduled to be held June 25-27.

The calendar of the current season includes 23 races. The fifth stage will be held from 20 to 23 May in Monaco.
