F1 confirms Qatar GP on 2021 calendar as part of long-term deal
The night race at Losail International Circuit has been in the planning stages for some months, but the announcement had to wait for the commercial arrangements to be finalised, and will take place on the 19-21 November.
The negotiations led to a long-term deal to run an event in Qatar for 10 years from 2023 to 2032.
There will be no grand prix in 2022 as the country will focus on hosting the FIFA World Cup that will start exactly a year after the first F1 race. The event will then return in 2023 at a yet-to-be-confirmed venue, with a new circuit now in the planning stages.
