Formula One bosses have announced that Turkey will fill the void left by the Singapore Grand Prix on 3 October.

The night race in Singapore was cancelled earlier this month following a series of Covid-19 travel restrictions in place in the city state.

Turkey's Istanbul Park - despite itself being axed earlier this year after the country was placed on the red list - is now set to take its place.

It is understood F1 chiefs expect Turkey to be moved to the amber list by October.

The Turkish GP is also pencilled in a week before the scheduled Japanese Grand Prix on October 10, with most members of the travelling circus due to go straight there, rather than head back to the UK, after Istanbul.

However, Suzuka chiefs are keen to see how this summer's Tokyo Olympics play out before they take a firm decision on their race.
