The tragic Formula 1 2020 season is about to begin, with official FIA confirmation of eight races, starting on 5th of July 2020.

Thanks to the COVID-19 global pandemic, the 2020 season of Formula 1 has been non-existent since the cancellation of the Australian Grand Prix on race day, the 15th of March 2020 at the Melbourne Grand Prix Circuit.

Since then, thousands of Formula 1 fans have been waiting in anticipation for an official announcement of the continuation of the 2020 Formula 1 season by the FIA, but as the months went by, more and more races got postponed, and then eventually cancelled due to multiple countries going into lockdown and implementing social distancing restrictions.

But recently, the FIA announced that the first race of the season will go-ahead on the 5th of July 2020, as Austria hosts its Grand Prix at the infamous Red Bull Ring under strict conditions.

The second race will happen at the same track a week later. Thereafter, the Hungarian Grand Prix will host its first race of the season on the 19th of July. Then, Formula 1 will make its way to the United Kingdom at Silverstone on the 2nd of August, and again on the 9th of August. Then, Spain will host it's Grand Prix on the 16th of August, followed by Belgium on the 30th of August and, lastly, at Monza in Italy on the 6th of September 2020.
