Paris - A 21-race season awaits in 2018, with a triple-header
featured for the first time ever on a Formula One calendar - but two races
are in doubt.
The return of France and Germany, plus the omission of Malaysia, will
see the calendar extended slightly from 2017 and a busy summer is in
store as a result.
The French Grand Prix has been pencilled in for June 24, with the
Austrian Grand Prix to follow seven days after and then the British
Grand Prix is scheduled for June 8 - marking three races in as many
The other key stand-out is that the Chinese Grand Prix (April 8) and
the Singapore Grand Prix (September 16) are listed as provisional and
could be in doubt.
There is no change to the first and final destinations on the F1 calendar as Australia and Abu Dhabi keep their respective roles.
The first race of the 2018 season begins on March 25 and the final race is on November 25.
