Calendar changes

  • The Malaysian, Spanish and, controversially, Monaco Grands Prix were removed from the calendar. The Malaysian round had only been reintroduced in 2019, while the Spanish Grand Prix had been held, at different venues, since 2002. The Monaco Grand Prix, however, had been held every year since the formation of GPVWC, with the only exception of during the curtailed 2001 season.
  • The Dutch, French and Russian Grands Prix were reintroduced. The French race was last held in 2018 while Russia had been absent since the end of 2017. The Dutch Grand Prix, together with Zandvoort, was last held in 2012, despite an aborted attempt to hold the Grand Prix at Assen in 2016.
