Brazil is expected to be moved to a new circuit at Rio De Janiro which is why that race is not on yet. See the circuit here

However little work has taken part so we might be at Sao another year,


The same goes for the proposed race in Miami.

Although the big rule chnages will take place in 2022, some rules will be changed for 2021. These are as follows:

Financial Regulation:

A budget cap will be introdued at $145m for 21 races, this will increase by $1m for each race over and above 21. Likewise if a race is removed the cap descreses by $1m. Teams are also needing to submit annual expendture and use more commericaly available parts. In preperation for this Mclaren had to lay off some staff.

For breaking the rules teams can be deducted points in the champotinship or worse case be kicked out

Technical Regulations:

The FIA will mandate an outer floor chnage to reduce downforce levels and teams are limited to what they can change. Mclaren will have permission to change several components due to the engine supplier change. DAS is banned.

Sporting Regulations:

with pre-season testing reduced opportunities for young drivers has been revised. Teams will be forced to use a young driver for one or two days at the 3 day in season test. Furthermore teams must run a young driver for at least two FP1 sessions throughout the year, a young driver is defined as a driver who has a grade A licence and has done less than 2 F1 world championship races in their career.

Race weekend structure:

All of Thursday's media activies will be moved to Friday morning with time between the Friday sessions being reduced. Cars will enter parc ferme after FP3 rather than qualying.

So, Its reasonable to expect Hamilton and Stroll will sign for the teams they are in now. So no movement there.

Red Bull I think is Albon v Gasly, unless they want to take a punt on Perez.

Alfa Romeo is anyones guess. Schumacher looks a shoe-in (im guessing they can't announce until he's done enough for licence points in F2) Raikkonen I think he choses if he stays or goes. Of he wants to stay then itll be him and Mick. If he goes then I think Perez or Hulk will get the seat.

AT will be Gasly and Kvyat or Tsuonda. Vips won't have superlicence points and i don't see the point in keepijng Kvyat

Haas: Who knows. They may get rid of the pair of them and pick up Perez if he doesn't end up at AR and a Ferrari junior. Could see both going, Kmag would be for me thje more likjely one to stay.

So in conclusuion Its all up for grabs, im sure Gio is out though and he'll be in a Ferrari Wec car maybe. Or become a hairdresser.

Some other rumours.

George Russell’s Seat could be at risk for 2021.

Nikita Mazepin father looks to be in a Haas buyout which places Marzipan at Haas, this ruins Perez’s Haas chance meaning he could end up at Williams in place of George.

https://f1i.com/news/387250-russell-...n-reports.html

My question here is wouldn’t you chop latifi instead, from what we’ve seen from George him and Russell would be a mighty lineup.

the mazepin to haas is an old rumour. latifi has loads of budget. Perez might end up in mclarens indy team if rumours are to believed, and it isnt guaranteed magnussen will remain (we know grosjean is likely to leave f1 at the end of 2020).
