F1's 70th anniversary season gets underway with the Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne on March 15 and, as usual, it will end with the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix at the Yas Marina Circuit on November 29. But after months of hard work, the 2020 calendar has been released. The season will begin in Australia in mid-March and conclude in Abu Dhabi at the end of November. That has been avoided, with the race occupying a similar date to 2019. F1 also notes that contracts for the Italian Grand Prix at Monza have yet to be finalized, so that could be subject to change. F1 has also confirmed that there will be two three-day tests prior to the start of the season, with both taking place at Barcelona.

Vietnam joins the calendar as the third round, in early April, with the Netherlands returning at Zandvoort after a 35-year absence. There is huge engagement and people want to come and see Formula 1. The biggest change is the addition of a Vietnam Grand Prix, a street race will take place on April 5th in the country's capital city of Hanoi. These are expected to include the addition of a number of reverse grid qualifying races as an experiment ahead of the 2021 F1 revamp, but these proposals will only be signed off by a later electronic vote. Along the way there will be seven back-to-back race weekends and two exciting new additions. Next year will see 20 races returning, after many agreed fresh deals, with one departing, one rejoining after 35 years and one sparkling new venue.

It will lead to more work for everyone in F1 and we are all conscious of the extra load it places on team personnel, our own staff, and all of our stakeholders from an operational and logistical point of view. And, currently being finalised is an extension to the contract with the Italian Grand Prix, which next weekend celebrates its 90th anniversary. Grand Prix racing will also return to Zandvoort for the Dutch Grand Prix for the first time since 1985, which will surely be met with huge Max Verstappen support.

The option of placing France in a triple header, as it was in 2018, was discussed but F1 was keen to avoid that given the toll it took on those working in the sport. Formula 1 has released the provisional calendar for the 2020 season, which features a record 22 races. Liberty Media also agreed extensions this year with event organisers in Britain, Italy and Mexico. We take a look at the changes that have been made from 2019 - which new races are coming in, what next for Germany after it lost its slot, the first clash in four years with the biggest sportscar race in the world, and how F1 is fitting more races than ever into the same March-to-November timeframe.
