The 2020 Portuguese Grand Prix will take place on October 25 in Portimao which is a town in the Algarve region of southern, Portugal.
This will be the 12th round of this year's Championship and it is set to take place at the Portugal Autódromo Internacional do Algarve.
The Portuguese Grand Prix is making its Formula One return after 24 years away and it is being revived in 2020 for a one-off event. 
The last race was held in 1996 and it was won by Jacques Villeneuve of Williams-Renault.

Villeneuve was followed by his teammate Damon Hill and Ferrari's Michael Schumacher respectively.   
The most recent race in the 2020 season was the Eifel Grand Prix which was won by Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton.
Max Verstappen of Red Bull and Renault driver Daniel Ricciardo finished second and third respectively. 
Hamilton is sitting at the top of this year's Drivers’ Championship standings having impressively won seven races.
His teammate Valtteri Bottas is placed second on the Drivers' Championship standings, while Verstappen is sitting on the third spot.

Racing Point driver Sergio Perez finished fourth at the Eifel Grand Prix and he now is placed fifth on the World Drivers' Championship standings.
The Mexican star feels that a mid-race Safety Car scuppered his chances of securing the ninth rostrum of his career.
“I’m gutted because I felt the podium was in our hands,” said Perez. 
“I think without the Safety Car the podium was going to be ours. We were catching very fast Daniel. 
"He was going to struggle at some point with his tyres but then the Safety Car came.”
Mercedes are still placed at the top of Constructors' standings followed by second-placed Red Bull and third-placed Racing Point.
