The 2019 FIA Formula 1 World Championship calendar has been approved by the FIA following a World Motor Sport Council meeting in St Petersburg on Wednesday, 5 December.

The calendar was initially released at the beginning of September, featuring the same races as this year but with small changes in regards to dates; the FIA gave its approval of that version in the previous WMSC meeting in October.

The 2019 season will start a week earlier than it did this year, with the first race of the season in Australia being held on March 17, ending a week later, with Abu Dhabi once again hosting the final race.

Several other changes have been made: Bahrain and China are now not back-to-back, and the triple-header from this year will not make a comeback.  Russia has been placed side-by-side with Japan, replacing Singapore, while Mexico and the United States Grand Prix have been swapped.

The WMSC approved F1’s planned schedule of events at the meeting on Wednesday, making the calendar changes official.
