If new restrictions are introduced on travel between Portugal and Britain, where most teams are based, F1’s plans to race in Portugal could be disrupted.

After the postponement of the Australian Grand Prix, which made the desert race the opening round of the 2021 season, F1 has already moved pre-season training to Bahrain. The series may again use the Outer Circuit, which was pressed into service when Bahrain held two races at the end of last season, if a second race is scheduled at the track.

The addition of the second race in Bahrain, one week after the March 28th season-opener, would have other effects on the calendar. Imola’s race on April 18th would likely be delayed by one week to allow teams sufficient travelling time.

Details of the plan were first reported by Grand Prix Radio in the Netherlands.
