Formula 1: 2020 schedule revealed, features all-time record 22 races

The 2020 Formula 1 schedule has been revealed, and it features an all-time record 22 races, including two additions to the schedule.

The 2020 Formula 1 schedule has been finalized and revealed, and it features more races than a Formula 1 schedule has ever featured in the history of the sport.

A total of 22 races are on next year’s schedule, breaking the previous record of 21 that was set in the 2016 season and then tied in the 2018 and 2019 seasons.

Of the 21 races on this year’s schedule, the only one not set to return is the German Grand Prix at the Hockenheimring. The two additions to the schedule were the Vietnamese Grand Prix at Hanoi Street Circuit and the Dutch Grand Prix at Circuit Zandvoort.

Like this season, there will be no tripleheader on next year’s schedule like there was last season with races in three consecutive weeks. However, there are set to be back-to-back race weekends on seven occasions throughout the course of next season.

The 2020 season is scheduled to get underway and end on the same weekends as this season, and with the same races.

Once again, the Australian Grand Prix is scheduled to kick things off on Sunday, March 15 at Melbourne Grand Prix Circuit, and the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix is scheduled to close out the season on Sunday, November 29 at Yas Marina Circuit.

The only race on this 22-race schedule for next year that is still subject to the signing of a contract is the Italian Grand Prix at Autodromo Nazionale Monza. However, a deal is expected to be reached to keep this race and this track on the schedule.

Here is the record-breaking 2020 Formula 1 schedule.
