The race in Montreal was cancelled due to travel restrictions.
And now, after Istanbul's Ataturk Stadium lost the Champions League final to Portugal, the Turkish GP has been replaced by a second race in Austria.
The race at the Istanbul Park Circuit was due to take place between June 11 and June 13.
The two races in Austria will go ahead between June 25-27 and July 2-4.
As part of the reshuffle, the French Grand Prix will now move one week FORWARD to the weekend of June 18-20.
An F1 statement read: "Following discussions with the promoter in Turkey and relevant stakeholders, it will not be possible to have the race between 11th-13th June.
"The promoter has requested that we look at the potential opportunity for the race to be rescheduled later in the season if possible, alongside China who made the same request earlier this year.
"We can confirm that there will now be two races in Austria, back to back.
