Two races in Qatar and one in Portimão will now open the 2021 MotoGP season, with the Argentina and Americas grand prix postponed.
A statement on the MotoGP website: “The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and resulting lockdowns and complications sadly oblige the postponement of both the Argentina GP and the Americas GP until the last quarter of 2021, with the Mandalika International Street Circuit in Indonesia being placed as a reserve Grand Prix venue, subject to homologation.”
