Following Formula 1’s announcement of their opening eight races of the revised 2020 calendar, Formula 2 and FIA Formula 3 confirmed that their 2020 season will also start on July 03-05 at the Red Bull Ring and will continue alongside F1 in the succeeding seven rounds.

Both championships were planned to start their 2020 campaign at Sakhir, Bahrain on 20-22 March, but was put on hold due to the global COVID-19 pandemic.

Since then, F2 and F3 have monitored the situation alongside Formula 1 who has been working closely with promoters, authorities in Europe and the FIA to put in place a revised calendar that allows a return to racing in a safe way for the visited communities and the paddocks.

The championships currently expect the events will take place without fans, with the hope to have them included in future rounds later this year.
