The calendar chaos of this season has had Codemasters on the back foot when it comes to the official F1 game. While F1 2021 is now out, there are still plenty of questions about what tracks will eventually be added to the title.

F1 2021 tracks

F1 2021 launched with 21 tracks. They are:

  • Bahrain International Circuit - Bahrain
  • Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya - Spain
  • Circuit de Monaco - Monaco

Of course, several of these tracks have since fallen off the 2021 calendar due to coronavirus. Canada, Australia, and Singapore will not be hosting a race this year, while Imola, Portimao, Jeddah, and Turkey are all coming into the calendar as replacements.

Replacement track DLC

Codemasters has announced that a trio of new tracks will be coming to F1 2021 as a free post-release DLC. This is due to the fact that building the track and surroundings, as well as training the AI on it, takes an awfully long time.

The tracks included are Imola, Portimao, and the Jeddah street circuit.

Istanbul Park is not coming to F1 2021. This is because it didn't officially enter the calendar until after the Codemasters cut off time. Barring any further announcement from Codemasters fans should not expect Istanbul Park to feature in F1 2021.
