New Jersey gets a last minute slot for next season’s F1 as the sport’s governing body, FIA, announces the calendar.

At the start of the month the FIA displayed their draft for next season’s race calendar with New Jersey no where to be seen on the list.

A few weeks on from the worries of New Jersey being scraped for good, Port Imperial Street will be one of the 22 venues of next season after so much delay.

Other Grand Prixs such as Russia, Austria and Mexico help complete the 22 race calendar.

Austria was given the thumbs up during the summer break making it the first Austrian Grand Prix since 2003 in which the seven time world champion, Michael Schumacher was victorious.

The Russian Grand Prix will be staged in Sochi which will just be months after the city will be hosting the 22nd winter Olympic games.

Exciting times for McLaren’s Sergio Perez and Sauber’s Esteban Gutierrez as both drivers have the possibility of racing on home turf. The Mexican Grand Prix is believed to take place in the capital, Mexico City.

The last race in Mexico goes way back to 1992 when Nigel Mansell won at the circuit with Michael Schumacher securing his first podium finish, the first of plenty.

The FIA have moved the South Korean Grand Prix from it’s usual slot in October to April 27th.

With it being a record 22 Grand Prixs in a single Formula 1 season, logistics is going to be a challenge for all 11 teams. Especially at the end of May and the first week in June with Monaco, New Jersey and Canadian Grand Prix planned to take place in a three week gap.

Next year’s British Grand Prix is booked for the 6th of June which is a lot more earlier for Silverstone going back to the last few years but only a few weeks earlier than usual.

Before the end of the current season things are hotting up for next year’s Formula 1 with next season’s cars being transformed to follow the new rules set by the FIA and to have 3 Grand Prixs added to the calendar, a lot of things to get excited about next season.

 

Watch out for Jamie’s insights of the Austrian, New Jersey, Russian and Mexican Grand Prix!
