New dates proposed for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix 2020

The final race of the Formula 1 season traditionally takes place in Abu Dhabi at the end of November or beginning of December.

This year, the season has been put on hold due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, but a proposed schedule for the season has been drawn up.

Here in the Middle East it's looking like there will be a double-header of races in Bahrain over two weekends (November 27 to 29 and December 4 to 6).

Following that, the final race of the season is proposed for Yas Marina Circuit on December 11 to 13 (though there's usually a full week of activities around the on-track action).

The dates have not been confirmed by Formula 1 and race organisers yet but according to a report in Autosport, the dates of the new 19-event championship are close to being signed off.

Should this version of the calendar be approved, Bahrain could be one of three destinations to host two Grand Prix races this year, the others being Austria and Great Britain.

Great Britain's races have already been approved for Silverstone Circuit, while Austria's are almost signed off.

Races are part of the FIA Formula 2 Championship and FIA Formula 3 Championship would also take place in Abu Dhabi.
