Fewer events, but more races in Formula 2 and Formula 3

For cost reasons, there will be fewer racing events in Formula 2 and Formula 3 on the calendar in 2021. However, the number of races per event will increase: from two to three.

In recent years, it has been customary for a Formula One Grand Prix in Europe to be the opening act of Formula 2 and Formula 3 races. The two classes are considered to be the opportunity for the drivers to the king class of motorsport, the Formula One.

From twelve to eight

In order to reduce travel costs, the number of events in Formula 2 will go back from 12 to 8 in 2021. The total number of races remains the same with three per weekend. There are seven more events on the programme in Formula 3.

Due to the increase in the number of races at the weekend, Formula 2 and Formula 3 are separated from each other. In turn, they are added to the F1 weekend. The introduction of new cars in both racing classes has been postponed. The current cars will remain in use until 2023.
