Provisional 2014 Calendar Released

A provisional calendar for the 2014 F1 season was released today. The big changes are the dropping of the New Jersey Grand Prix with the proposed addition of three new venues.

The Austin Grand Prix at the Red Bull Ring is already confirmed as a new race on next year’s calendar alongside the addition of a Russian Grand Prix at Sochi and a Mexican Grand Prix in Mexico City.

The provisional schedule has Australia penciled in as the season-opening race on March 16th, and ending with the Brazilian Grand Prix with a date set for November 13th.

New Jersey has been dropped from the calendar but this does not come as a surprise following the street circuits suspension from this year’s season following construction issues. Ecclestone maintains that the organisers, despite their objections, do not have the money to hold the race.

The twenty-one race season for next year would be the longest to date, but South Korea appears to be in doubt due to poor reception by fans both in Korea and abroad, since its first race in 2010. Minimal ticket sales could see the track disappear off the calendar, before the construction of the Yeongam marina city, based around the track in a copy of the Yas Marina circuit in Abu Dhabi, has even neared completion.

Ecclestone will now be seeking approval for the calendar, which can be seen below.
