FIA Formula 2 Testing Dates for 2021
The 2020 season has just finished, however, the plans for the 2021 campaign are well under way.
Following news of both the weekend format changes next year and the expected calendar for the eight round season, we are please to confirm the set of dates with the testing schedule.
In 2021 Formula 2 will have two testing events over two separate months.
First, will be the traditional three day pre-season event we saw last year in Bahrain on 9-11 March 2021.
This will see the Formula 2 teams start their championship challenge where they left off in the Middle-Eastern sun.
The First round of the season is at the Sakhir Circuit on 26-28 March 2021. (Check out the full 2021 calendar)
Due to the new format of a race weekend set out by the FIA next year we see a big gap between races one and two.
This change enables FIA Formula 3 and the W-Series to alternate during the full Formula 1 schedule at seperate Grand Prix weekends. (Check out the new 2021 weekend format)
To therefore fill this gap we see a new second test date in the 2021 year during the month of April. This event will be over the three days of 21-23 April 2021 at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.
This ensures that the Formula 2 drivers and teams have some track action ahead of the second round in Monte Carlo, Monaco on 20-22 May 2021.
Great news that we have an additional event to watch, now we wait for news of the 2021 Formula 2 driver line ups over the winter.
