Formula 1: Drive to Survive – Behind-the-scenes documentary series covering the 2018 season of the world’s biggest racing competition

The Formula 1 2020 season may be cruising towards a commanding Lewis Hamilton title victory, but the underlying drama continues to provide fans with a wide range of sub-plots to invest in.

McLaren and two other teams are separated by just seven points in the F1 constructor standings as the midfield battle continues to swing back and forth.

Racing Point made up plenty of ground at the weekend as Sergio Perez racked up a solid fourth-place finish in Russia, while Daniel Riccardo has been driving well for Renault, pushing his car to its limits in recent weeks.

Hamilton continues to dominate the F1 driver standings, while Mercedes’ iron grip of the F1 constructor standings remains stronger than ever, but there is still plenty to enjoy beyond the main headlines.

Teams will now take solace with a mini-break before returning to action at the Nurburgring next time out.

Check out everything you need to know about the F1 restart including full race calendar and TV details below.

What about the rest of the F1 2020 calendar?

Like all sports, the F1 2020 calendar took a lockdown-related battering, with numerous races cancelled and almost all remaining Grands Prix rescheduled.

The confirmed races are all based in – or close to – Europe, making the complex logistics easier to navigate than the final stretch of the calendar – a world tour ranging from Singapore to Brazil, from Russia to Mexico.

It has been a relatively smooth ride, albeit complex, for Formula 1, meaning the case may build for more races further afield, by which point the progress of the virus may have hopefully slowed.

When will the Formula 1 season end?

The final race of the season is set to take place in Abu Dhabi on Sunday 13th December.

This will allow a long off-season, more than enough races in 2020 to provide a solid championship calendar, while also minimising risk by not traversing the entire globe in search of race tracks due to double-headers.

It remains to be seen how the 2021 season will play out, but you can expect a more familiar calendar now that the peak of the crisis appears to have subsided.

What will happen with F1 2021? News and rumours

We’ll keep you posted throughout the season with the latest news and rumours about the 2021 season. For now, the season is expected to start as usual in February with 18 races on the billing and several more to be announced.

As for drivers, Sebastian Vettel will leave Ferrari to be replaced by Carlos Sainz Jr. That opened the door for Daniel Ricciardo to switch from Renault to McLaren ahead of 2021.

There are likely to be plenty more twists and turns before next season comes around, but for now, we can soak up the 2020 season in all its modified glory!
