F2 to replace Paul Ricard with Zandvoort in 2020, Bahrain joins F3 schedule

The FIA Formula 2 and Formula 3 championships will see changes for their respective 2020 campaigns with the Paul Ricard circuit being dropped in place of Zandvoort in Holland which rejoins the Formula 1 schedule next year.

Bahrain is also set to front the Formula 3 calendar for the first time with the series taking its maiden steps outside of Europe. Formula 2 will also get its own championship underway that same weekend.

Formula 2 will then end its season in Abu Dhabi in conjunction with F1 at the Yas Marina circuit on November 27-29. Between those events, the series will visit Holland, Spain, Monaco, Azerbaijan, Austria, Britain, Hungary, Belgium, Italy and Russia.

The second season of Formula 3 will join Formula 2 at nine of those 12 rounds, skipping Azerbaijan, Monaco and Abu Dhabi.

F3 will skip the Abu Dhabi finale in place of the world-famous Macau Grand Prix which is set to take place at a similar time.

Both calendars are still yet to be approved by the World Motorsport Council.
