F1 releases 2015 calendar featuring 21 races, Korea? Again?

Share This Post

Truth be told, a 21-race calendar is not really something the teams want to see but that’s what has been approved by the FIA’s World Motor Sport Council this week. Perhaps they know something we don’t about the return of the Korean Grand Prix and the likelihood of the race actually happening.

The FIA have a lot of things to consider and local sporting events as well as global events and circuit availability all play a roll but the races aren’t grouped like you would normally suspect them to be for travel. Weather plays as  role as well and so much so that the FIA’s Accident Panel investigating the Japanese Grand Prix incident involving Jules Bianchi recommended that they avoid rainy seasons in particular locations.

The calendar includes the Mexican Grand Prix as well as the much-maligned Korean Grand Prix.
