Perez to partner Verstappen in 2021 with Albon relegated to the reserve driver role. Not suprising really, they gave a couple of Red Bull drivers a shot to try and push Max along with no success so why not try an established driver. Goes somewhat against the whole RBR philosophy of bringing a young driver through the ranks but Max needs someone with him up the front.
Also with all the speculation about Toto looking at different options it's been confirmed he'll head up Mercedes for the next three years.

I think it's an optimistic calendar; we may well end up seeing things being similar to this year in the end as international travel restrictions will remain in place. Time will tell.....

Might be out of luck for Australia this year...
Local news are reporting it might be delayed. Not sure when it can be delayed to, though.
April 25 is listed as being tbc. Maybe they could hold it then - so I could go to the ANZAC Day Game at the MCG, then onto the F1, maybe followed by a free dinner at Vue de monde - yes I know I'm dreaming :)

Call me a cynic but feels like just playing things out for the media to create some excitement? ;)

Judging by most of last season - there will be more excitement about Hamilton signing/not signing for Mercedes than for most of the races for the season.

I was interested in the earlier comments about "pushing Max Verstappen" along for the 2021 season, I thought he drove the wheels off a distictly underpowered and un-competative 2020 Red Bull car that (like all the rest of the field) weren't really even in the same league as the works Mercedes team. The next most competitive car to the 2020 Mercedes car was the 2019 Mercedes car also known as the Racing Point/"Pink Mercedes".
