21 races scheduled for Formula 1 2019
Formula 1 has revealed a draft 2019 calendar, featuring 21 races – the same as this year, however, without the mid-season tripleheader.
The 2018 tripleheader included the races in France, Austria and England, which were run in 2018 on June 24, July 1 and July 8, respectively. In 2019, the race at Silverstone, England will be pushed back one week.
The season will begin in Melbourne, Australia on March 17th and finish on December 1st in Abu Dhabi.
The Singapore GP will now form a back-to-back with Russia on September 22/29, while Mexico will take place the weekend before the United States GP. Plans for a Miami Grand Prix in Florida have been tabled until at least 2020.
Speaking after the release of the calendar, F1 commercial chief Sean Bratches said he was delighted that contracts had been extended with Germany and Japan in the past week.
“The renewal of the Japanese Grand Prix and the confirmation of the German Grand Prix are both examples of our direction to place fans at the heart of Formula 1, a vision shared with all our promoters,” he said.
