The 2016 calendar revised and corrected

This morning, the organizers of the Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne indicated that the inaugural event of the 2016 World Championship would finally be contested on March 20, instead of April 3 as initially planned. This new feature was part of a set of upcoming decisions coming from the World Motor Sport Council in Paris.

The reworked version of the calendar also shows a one-month summer break between Germany (July 31) and Belgium (August 28). The race in Malaysia, usually contested at the start of the year, should take place on October 2.

The other major modification will be applied for the European Grand Prix in Baku, Azerbaijan which will be held the same weekend as the 24 Hours of Le Mans (June 18-19). The start of the race should however be scheduled so as not to conflict with the Le Mans event, but should prevent Nico Hulkenberg to defend his title in Sarthe. The season will end on November 27 in Abu Dhabi.

Provisional calendar 2016:

March 20: Melbourne, Australia
April 3: Bahrain, Bahrain
April 17: Shanghai, China
May 1: Sochi, Russia
May 15: Barcelona, ​​Spain
May 29: Monte Carlo, Monaco
June 12: Montreal, Canada
June 19: Baku, Azerbaijan
July 3: Spielberg, Austria
July 10: Silverstone, Great Britain
July 24: Budapest, Hungary
July 31: Hockenheim, Germany
August 28: Spa-Francorchamps, Belgium
September 4: Monza, Italy
September 18: Singapore, Singapore
October 2: Sepang, Malaysia
October 9: Suzuka, Japan
October 23: Austin, United States
November 6: Mexico City, Mexico
November 13: Sao Paolo, Brazil
November 27: Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates
