After several moments of uncertainty, Formula 1 and the Portuguese government agreed on what to do with the 2021 Portuguese Grand Prix, that will take place over 66 laps of the 4.684-kilometre Autodromo Internacional do Algarve.

Despite of the treacherous and precarious situation, due to the increasingly threatening COVID-19 pandemic, F1 and the organizers of the Portuguese Grand Prix are happy to have found an agreement that will invlove security measures to respect citizens and offer them entertainment in this difficult time.

Some well-informed sources say that the Portimão Grand Prix will occupy the third spot of the 2021 F1 calendar, on May the 2nd, immediately after the Bahrain Grand Prix (March 28) and the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix (April 18).

The teams will be formally informed of the addition in the calendar during an F1 Commission meeting, that will take place on Thursday, set, also, to finalize the calendar plans, and to debate and vote on a host of important topics for the sport.

It will take a lot of prudence and good observance of the rules, because of the new quarantine restrictions that have been introduced in the United Kingdom.

This will also make it difficult for the teams to come back home before and after the Spanish GP, because whoever arrives in England from anywhere outside the UK, Ireland, the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man will need to self-isolate for 10 days.

So the teams will have to make an extra effort to stay in Europe longer than expected, to be able to compete in all the GPs without problems.

It's a confirmation that will make F1 fans very happy, after the emotions of last year's GP, where Lewis Hamilton became Formula 1’s most successful driver of all time in terms of victories and with Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc taking home his stunning P4 (for a not very lucky team last year) in qualifying with the same position at the end of the race.
