21-race 2016 calendar ratified by World Motor Sport Council

1 Mins read

The World Motor Sport Council have confirmed the 2016 Formula 1 season will have twenty-one races, although the future of the United States Grand Prix at the Circuit of the Americas remains uncertain.

The American event, scheduled to run on October 23 next year, remains the only race not to be set in stone, with a new contract yet to be signed with the national sporting authority and with F1 Supremo Bernie Ecclestone amid financial uncertainty surrounding the venue.

The only date change from the previous version of the calendar is for the Mexican Grand Prix, which has moved forward by one week from November 6 to October 30.

The round in the Azerbaijan capital of Baku has been confirmed to run on June 19, meaning the event will clash with the 24 Hours of Le Mans, meaning Nico Hulkenberg will not be able to defend his crown even without Porsche slimming their race entry down to just the two cars.
