2021 - Second half of the Season Schedule and Covid
Second half of the season schedule is becoming squishy with Covid. Races at risk:
1. Australia (canceled) - no replacement yet.
2. Netherlands (at risk)
3. Japan (at risk)
4. Brazil (at risk)
Not listed but also have to be considered at risk
Possible replacements - Qatar, 2nd U.S. race in Austin, 2nd race in Bahrain

Japan is now cancelled. Don't understand it - they had the olympics.
But that puts Turkey at risk. Turkey is on the red list. Turkey only worked if Japan was on the schedule - because basically their time in Japan took care of the UK quarantine requirements and coming back from Japan they only had to take a covid test.
Mexico and Brazil are also on the red list.
F1 said they will be releasing a revised schedule in the coming weeks (I assume maybe next week).

It really sucks not knowing how long the season will be, and how much it will be modified. I really don't have a big problem if they double up races, but missing out on good tracks sucks as well.
