When is the next Formula 1 race? F1 schedule, date, start time for 2021 Turkish Grand Prix

Waiting is the hardest part in Formula 1.

After a gripping, dramatic and wet Russian Grand Prix, F1 drivers are taking the next few weeks to towel off before heading to Turkey for the 2021 Turkish Grand Prix.

Lando Norris was oh so close to snagging his first career victory, but Mother Nature had different plans in Sochi: With just laps left in the race, rain stormed the track, leaving Norris in the unfortunate position to decide whether he wanted to pit for wet-weather tires or stay the course and wait out the rain. 

Unfortunately, Norris chose poorly, sliding off the track and allowing Lewis Hamilton to snag the win. Norris finished eighth, with Carlos Sainz and Max Verstappen filling out the podium.

The Turkish GP should be so lucky to carry such drama.

Time to catch your breath. Here’s what you need to know about the next F1 race:
