It feels all disjointed. Back-to-back races, then a 3 week gap. Not many races in the Summer but then they get jammed in at the end of the year. It's strange and it'll get worse next year when Sochi joins. Teams are getting pushed to breaking point and they need to hire more people.

By my calculations there will be 95 days between the flag in Brazil and FP1 in Bahrain. That is not a lot of time.


I think twenty races should be the very limit, although I have heard some people suggest that there might be 21 or 22 races by 2015.

There'll be 21 next season, assuming Korea still has some money left.

If that's the case (plus the 4 tests) then teams will have to hire more staff.

Great calendar,good that you've dropped Korea.but why just 18 races?

and i think final 3 races can be problematic.teams travel half the globe to get to North America,then they return to Europe and again come back to north America in 2 weeks time,it's not easy for them in terms of logistics.
A craven can be as brave as any man, when there is nothing to fear. And we all do our duty, when there is no cost to it. How easy it seems then, to walk the path of honor.

Potrero de los Funes is in South America, or am I misunderstanding something?

I decided to shorten the calendar to eighteen races as it gives the teams and drivers more time in between races. Especially with in-season testing next year, it's going to be a really packed schedule.

yes it's in South America :) but it doesn't make things easier and still it's a long way from Europe,Why not to put one of the final races before or after Canada?

I don't understand. I think it's logical to have Austin and Mexico City together as they are very close. Potrero de los Funes and Interlagos are also very close.

Yes i know what you mean,but there is a 2 week gap between these final races,back to back races will make things easier for teams.
