2014 Formula 1 schedule finalised without Korea, New Jersey, Mexico

Formula 1's definitive calendar for the 2014 season has been confirmed by the FIA World Motor Sport Council

2014 Formula 1 schedule finalised without Korea, New Jersey, Mexico

As expected, Korea, Mexico and the planned Grand Prix of America in New Jersey have dropped off the 22-race provisional calendar published by the FIA in September.

It is understood that financial problems have led to Korea losing its slot after four years on the schedule, while there are still hopes Mexico can return to F1 for the first time since 1992 in 2015.

The future of the New Jersey race is uncertain as this is now the second time the race has been removed from the calendar having dropped out of the 2013 season.

This means that the 2014 season will be held over 19 races, with several changes made to the running order late in the season because of the loss of races.

The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, originally scheduled for October 26, has been moved to the end of the season and will now be held on November 23.

This has allowed the United States GP at Austin to move forward a week to November 2, while Brazil, which was originally the season finale, is moved forward from the date now occupied by Abu Dhabi to November 9.

Mercedes ended Friday practice at the Hungaroring with a clear gap to Red Bull thanks to Valtteri Bottas’s pace in topping FP2. But there are other reasons why the Black Arrows squad feels satisfied with its progress so far at a track many Formula 1 observers reckon favours Red Bull overall

How Red Bull endured its second car crash in two weeks

OPINION: Red Bull was justified to be upset that Lewis Hamilton survived his British GP clash with Max Verstappen and went on to win. But its attempts to lobby the FIA to reconsider the severity of Hamilton's in-race penalty were always likely to backfire, and have only succeeded in creating a PR disaster that will distract from its on-track efforts

The ‘screaming’ F1 engine future that may not be out of reach

OPINION: It wasn't just the Verstappen/Hamilton clash that had the Red Bull and Mercedes bosses at loggerheads at Silverstone, with the nature of Formula 1's 2025 engines also subject for disagreement. But hopes to have loud, emotive engines that are also environmentally friendly don't have to be opposed

OPINION: Changes to the layout of Abu Dhabi’s circuit aim to reverse the trend of insipid Formula 1 races there - the promoter has even described one of the new corners as “iconic”. And that, argues STUART CODLING, is one of this venue’s abiding failings

Last year's Formula 2 runner-up Callum Ilott could be on his way to becoming the first Briton to contest a grand prix in an Alfa Romeo since Reg Parnell in 1950. But, says OLEG KARPOV, the Ferrari Driver Academy protege is having to temper his ambition at the moment – outwardly at least…
