Lights out on the 2021 Formula 1 world championship is almost, almost here.

After the coronavirus shortened the 2020 race schedule, F1 racing is back in a furious way come March 28 with a record slate of 23 races, an increase from the 17-race sprint that took place in 2020. Sakhir plays host to the 2021 season debut, with the Bahrain Grand Prix 

The 2020 F1 season was all sorts of memorable: Lewis Hamilton cruised to his seventh world championship, George Russell took a seat behind the wheel of a Mercedes in a glimpse of the future, Romain Grosjean miraculously survived a horrifying crash and Pierre Gasly was the first Frenchman to win a grand prix in nearly a quarter century.

Imola will make a return to the schedule in 2021 in Round 2, less than a year after five drivers did not finish because of a swath of technical failures and an accident sidelined racers. The slate also sees racers jump across the pond again, after all races in 2020 took place in Europe and Asia.

Get ready for lights out in just a few short months’ time. Here’s what you need to know about the 2021 F1 schedule:
