The organizers of the Australian Grand Prix in the Formula One World Championship have decided to cancel the race officially, for the second consecutive season.

The cancellation of the Australian Grand Prix for the second year in a row came due to the strict restrictions imposed on entering the country, in light of the continuous evolution of the Corona virus and the emergence of new strains.

“We regret to announce that the 2021 Australian Grand Prix has been canceled due to logistical constraints and challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic,” Australian Grand Prix organizers said in an official statement.

The organizers added: “The current COVID-19 pandemic, travel complications and logistical constraints mean that it is not possible to guarantee that the race will take place at this time, and accordingly it will not be on the 2021 schedule.

” Stefano Domenicali, chief executive of Formula One, said that despite his frustration, he was confident of keeping the current season’s 23-race schedule despite the cancellation of the Australian Grand Prix.

“We have a range of options going forward to make up for the Australian Grand Prix, and we will be working on that in the coming weeks.

” It is noteworthy that the Australian MotoGP World Championship, which was scheduled to take place on October 24, was also canceled for the second year in a row for the same reason.

The MotoGP organizers decided to move the Malaysian Grand Prix by a week, to replace the Australian Grand Prix, and add another race in Portugal to the season’s schedule, on November 7
