2018 F1 calendar announced by FIA – Germany and France return


Formula 1 will have three consecutive races for the first time next year as the FIA has announced its 2018 calendar will include the French, Austrian and British Grands Prix on successive weekends.

With the return of the French GP at Circuit Paul Ricard and the German round at Hockenheim, the 21-race calendar was approved at the FIA’s World Motor Sport Council meeting in Geneva, Switzerland.

The Azerbaijan GP moves from June to April, before Spain, while the Russian GP has switched from April to September, before the Japanese round; the Malaysian GP has dropped off the calendar after 19 years.

The 2018 Le Mans 24 Hours was also approved for June 16/17 and will not clash with F1. The rest of the World Endurance Championship schedule is yet to be announced.

The FIA says that the races in China and Singapore are subject to commercial rights holder confirmation and its next World Motor Sport Council meeting, to be attended by 110 National Sporting Authorities, will take place in Paris on September 21 2017.
