FIA reveals 21-race 2017 Formula 1 calendar

The FIA has announced the 2017 Formula 1 World Championship calendar, featuring only minor adjustments from this year's schedule

FIA reveals 21-race 2017 Formula 1 calendar

The season will again feature 21 races, starting in Australia at the end of March and ending in Abu Dhabi eight months later.

There are small alterations to the order of some events compared to the 2016 calendar.

China and Bahrain swap places, with the Shanghai race moving up to the second slot on the calendar after Melbourne.

Malaysia moves forward from this year's early October date to mid-September, swapping places with Singapore - which is now back-to-back with Japan.

A fortnight gap is created between the United States and Mexican Grands Prix, but there is now just a week between Mexico and Brazil.

The Canadian, German and Brazilian GPs are all listed as subject to confirmation, with Hockenheim slated as the German venue even though 2017 would ostensibly have been the year the race returned to the Nurburgring under their alternating deal.

F1 again clashes with the Le Mans 24 Hours, which takes place on the same June weekend as the European GP in Azerbaijan.

How Red Bull's dynamic leader shaped its F1 philosophy

The death of Dietrich Mateschitz last month has not only deprived Red Bull of its visionary founder, it has shorn Formula 1 of one of its most influential benefactors. Mateschitz himself was famously media-shy, preferring to let the brand do the talking on his behalf. And, while it’s now normal to speak of Red Bull F1 titles and champions made, Mateschitz never assumed it would be easy or even possible – as ANTHONY ROWLINSON discovered during this previously unpublished interview from 2006…
