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.

Singapore's October 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 October 10.
