FIA will try to avoid Le Mans/F1 clash in 2021

Next year's Le Mans race is provisionally scheduled for June 12-13

Formula One's governing body, the FIA, will do what it can to avoid a calendar clash in 2021 between the 24 Hours of Le Mans and a grand prix, president Jean Todt told reporters at the 88th edition of the event. This year's F1 calendar had listed the Canadian Grand Prix on the same June weekend as Le Mans before the COVID-19 pandemic tore up the schedules, with the Montreal race ultimately cancelled. Le Mans will be the highlight of a reduced six-round World Endurance Championship (WEC) season
