Azerbaijan in 2016…could New Jersey join too?

With the announcement of a Mexican Grand Prix, there is also more discussion of new races to the Formula 1 calendar including the Grand Prix in Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan. According to Forbes, the grand prix will take place in 2016.

The race was originally slated for 2015, just like Mexico, but it seems the group will wait a year and get the details in order.

There is some talk about the New Jersey Grand Prix in Weehawken as well with Bernie Eccelstone saying:

“Somebody said to me the other day that New Jersey seem to have got their act together now and that they have got the money and are all in good shape. Whether or not that is true I don’t know. The soonest it could come on the calendar is 2016.”

We’ll see if that happens as it has already been added and taken off the calendar twice.
