Great Britain’s Lewis Hamilton begins his quest for a record eighth drivers’ championship as the 2021 Formula 1 World Championship racing season begins Sunday, March 28, at the Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix.

After the coronavirus pandemic forced race cancellations and postponements in 2020, F1 is back to racing a full international season. The Australian Grand Prix, which traditionally is Formula 1’s season-opening race, has been postponed until November. The Chinese Grand Prix originally scheduled for April has been canceled.

Highlights of the schedule include the return of the Monaco Grand Prix May 23, the Canadian Grand Prix June 13, the United States Grand Prix October 24, and the Mexican Grand Prix October 31. The season concludes December 12 at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

ESPN networks have live and tape-delayed coverage of F1 practices, qualifying and races all season long. ESPN is again teaming with Sky Sports and Formula 1 to bring Sky Sports’ award-winning presentation of Formula 1 racing to American viewers.
