The Formula 1 Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal has been cancelled for the second year in a row.

Federal, provincial, and municipal representatives scheduled a press conference on Wednesday morning to confirm the event has been cancelled for the second consecutive year because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Formula One race was scheduled to take place June 13 at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. The race was set to be the seventh race on the 2021 Formula 1 calendar. The race will now move to Turkey as a replacement for the second consecutive season. Turkey had not hosted an F1 race since 2011 until it was called upon as part of F1's European-centric schedule in 2020.

The Canadian Grand Prix is a 70-lap race that has been held at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal since 1978. The last edition held in 2019 was won by Lewis Hamilton after Sebastian Vettel received a five-second penalty late in the race.
