MEXICO RETURNS ON 20-RACE 2015 F1 CALENDAR
12 September, 2014

The Formula 1 calendar will expand to a record-equalling 20 races next season with Mexico returning in November after a 23-year absence, the governing FIA said on Friday.

The 1 November race in Mexico City will be paired with the U.S. Grand Prix in Austin, Texas, the previous weekend. Mexico last appeared on the calendar in 1992.

The Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne will start the season as usual on 5 March while Abu Dhabi will again end the championship on 29 November.

There was no mention in the International Automobile Federation (FIA) statement, issued after a World Motor Sport Council meeting in Beijing, whether that would continue to be the case in 2015.

There will again be a two-week break between Australia and the second round in Malaysia, rather than putting them on as back-to-back events.

However there will be four ‘pairs’ of races on successive weekends, with Malaysia and Bahrain running back-to-back before Germany and Hungary, Singapore and Japan and then United States and Mexico.

Japan has been paired with Russia, making its Formula One debut in Sochi next month, on this season’s calendar.

As expected, the Indian Grand Prix which was dropped at the end of 2013 failed to make a return while there was also no room for a proposed race in New Jersey after successive postponements.

Formula One last had 20 races in a season in 2012, with some teams reluctant to go over that number. (Reuters
