LONDON (REUTERS) - The Turkish Grand Prix will take the place of Singapore's cancelled Formula One race on this year's calendar in October, the sport announced on Friday (June 25).

Singapore's Oct 1-3 night race was cancelled this month due to immigration restrictions related to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Turkey's race at the Istanbul Park circuit will slot in a week before the Japanese Grand Prix which remains scheduled for Suzuka on Oct 10.
