Final calendar for the 2016 season is now confirmed

FIA Formula One World Championship, Turkish Grand Prix, Istanbul

This afternoon, it was confirmed that next year’s United States and Mexican GPs will be held back-to-back, in the only change to the final version of the Formula 1 calendar ratified by the FIA World Motor Sport Council.

Following its return to the F1 calendar this year, the Mexican Grand Prix moves forward by one week in 2016, from November 6 to October 30.

With the Circuit of the America’s future not looking steady due to local funding cuts, the American Grand Prix is subject to a promoter’s agreement being reached.

As the Mexico City race was originally scheduled for the week before the Brazilian Grand Prix, there will still be six back-to-back events – Canada/Europe (Baku), Austria/Britain, Hungary/Germany, Belgium/Italy, Malaysia/Japan and United States/Mexico.

As previously confirmed, the season will start in Australia on the 20th March and will end in Abu Dhabi on the 27th November; while August represents a summer break between the German GP on July 31 and Spa on August 28.

Here’s the 2016 F1 calendar as follows:-
