By on Monday, October 21, 2013

2011 German Grand Prix - ThursdayThe Formula Renault 3.5 Series will race at the Nurburgring next season in place of a round at the Red Bull Ring in Austria.

The renovated circuit, formerly the A1 Ring, hosted a round of the championship this season but drops off the calendar after just a single year.

The series will begin at Monza in April and conclude at Jerez in October.

The championship will continue to act as a support package to the Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix in May.

"We’ve put together a calendar that offers plenty of variety and is structured around Formula One circuits and key markets for the Renault brand,” explained Arnaud Boulanger, Director of Motorsport Renault Sport Technologies.

"We’ve gone for the same balance, and the tracks selected will give drivers the best possible preparation for the challenges that await them in their careers. In this our tenth season we felt it was important to combine classic circuits like Spa-Francorchamps with newcomers like Jerez."

Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 and Eurocup Clio will support the championship at all bar Monaco.

McLaren young driver Kevin Magnussen won the 2013 championship on Saturday, ahead of fellow McLaren youngster Stoffel Vandoorne and Red Bull's Antonio Felix da Costa.
