    Hey everyone!

    I know the 2017 provisional calendar won’t be released till the weekend of the Belgian, Italian, or Singapore Grand Prix this year, so I’d like to know what your versions of the 2017 calendar would look like. I have 2 versions –

    This version has some dates reshuffled:
    1. Australia, 19 March
    2. Malaysia, 26 March
    3. Bahrain, 9 April
    4. China, 16 April
    5. Russia, 30 April
    6. Spain, 14 May
    7. Monaco. 28 May
    8. Canada, 11 June
    9. Austria, 25 June
    10. Britain, 9 July
    11. Germany, 23 July
    12. Hungary, 30 July
    13. Belgium, 27 August
    14. Italy, 10 September
    15. Singapore, 24 September
    16. Japan, 8 October
    17. Azerbaijan, 15 October
    18. United States, 29 October
    19. Mexico, 5 November
    20. Brazil, 19 November
    21. Abu Dhabi, 26 November

    The above version has Malaysia shifted back to the beginning of the season as it has always been from 2001-2015. Azerbaijan is at the second half of the season, twinned after Japan, and Abu Dhabi forms a doubleheader after Brazil.

    Version 2 (same as 2016 calendar):
    1. Australia, 26 March
    2. Bahrain, 9 April
    3. China, 23 April
    4. Russia, 7 May
    5. Spain, 21 May
    6. Monaco, 4 June
    7. Canada, 18 June
    8. Azerbaijan, 25 June
    9. Austria, 9 July
    10. Britain, 16 July
    11. Hungary, 30 July
    12. Germany, 6 August
    13. Belgium, 3 September
    14. Italy, 10 September
    15. Singapore, 24 September
    16. Malaysia, 8 October
    17. Japan, 15 October
    18. United States, 29 October
    19. Mexico, 5 November
    20. Brazil, 19 November
    21. Abu Dhabi, 3 December

    What do you think?

    Australia
    China
    India
    Bahrain
    Abu Dhabi
    Azerbaijan
    Russia
    Turkey
    Hungary
    Austria
    Germany
    Italy
    France
    Monaco
    Spain
    Portugal
    Belgium
    UK
    Canada
    US New York
    US Austin
    Mexico
    Brazil
    Argentina
    Malaysia
    Japan
    Korea
    Singapore

    Not necessarily in that order but pair races up in back to back weekends, means the schedule isn’t too long and there’s less flying backwards and forwards, but at the same time we get to go back to cool places like Istanbul, Portugal and Korea

    A 28 round championship? There is 21 rounds at the moment and that is way too much. Germany won’t be on next year so that is 20. Italy could be dropped so that makes 19. I personally think Bahrain, Azerbaijan, Spain, Russia and Abu Dhabi should be dropped but that won’t happen. I would like to see a European Grand Prix which is rotated every year. Estoril, Imola, Magny Cours, Brands Hatch, Zandvoort would be among the options for me. Next years championship should start in Australia and finish in Brazil. Abu Dhabi is an awful way to finish a championship.

    Your non CVC calendar would mean the races would be held on a Thursday

    1. Australian Grand Prix (Melbourne Grand Prix Circuit) – 19th March
    2. Malaysian Grand Prix (Sepang International Circuit) – 26th March
    3. Japanese Grand Prix (Suzuka International Race Course) – 9th April
    4. Chinese Grand Prix (Shanghai International Circuit) – 16th April
    5. Russian Grand Prix (Sochi Autodrom) – 30th April
    6. Monaco Grand Prix (Circuit de Monaco) – 28th May
    7. Belgian Grand Prix (Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps) – 18th June
    8. British Grand Prix (Silverstone Circuit) – 2nd July
    9. German Grand Prix (Nürburgring) – 16th July
    10. Italian Grand Prix (Autodromo Nazionale Monza) – 30th July
    11. Turkish Grand Prix (Istanbul Park) – 27th August
    12. Indian Grand Prix (Buddh International Circuit) – 17th September
    13. South African Grand Prix (Kyalami Racing Circuit) – 1st October
    14. Brazilian Grand Prix (Autódromo José Carlos Pace) – 15th October
    15. Mexican Grand Prix (Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez) – 29th October
    16. United States Grand Prix (Circuit of the Americas) – 5th November

    I think for the World Championship the perfect amount of races is 16. It should have a fairly wide spread across the world but at the same time retain its European heartland, and travelling should be kept to a minimum.

    After some thinking and tinkering, here is my new 2017 calendar:

    1. South African Grand Prix (Kyalami Racing Circuit) – 5th March

    2. Malaysian Grand Prix (Sepang International Circuit) – 19th March
    3. Australian Grand Prix (Melbourne Grand Prix Circuit) – 26th March

    4. Argentine Grand Prix (Potrero de los Funes Circuit) – 9th April
    5. Brazilian Grand Prix (Autódromo José Carlos Pace) – 16th April

    6. Russian Grand Prix (Sochi Autodrom) – 7th May
    7. Turkish Grand Prix (Istanbul Park) – 14th May

    8. Monaco Grand Prix (Circuit de Monaco) – 28th May

    9. Belgian Grand Prix (Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps) – 11th June

    10. British Grand Prix (Silverstone Circuit) – 2nd July

    11. French Grand Prix (Circuit de Dijon-Prenois) – 16th July

    12. German Grand Prix (Nürburgring) – 30th July

    13. Italian Grand Prix (Autodromo Nazionale Monza) – 27th August

    14. Indian Grand Prix (Buddh International Circuit) – 17th September

    15. Chinese Grand Prix (Shanghai International Circuit) – 1st October
    16. Japanese Grand Prix (Suzuka International Race Course) – 8th October

    17. Mexican Grand Prix (Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez) – 29th October
    18. United States Grand Prix (Circuit of the Americas) – 5th November

    I added Argentina and France to my earlier version to take the schedule up to 18 races (the absolute maximum IMO) and moved some Grand Prix around to give the calendar a bit of a refresh, I think beginning the season in South Africa rather than in Australia may be better because of the time zones, maybe boosting viewing figures. I also put in spaces between the races to represent the weeks where there is no F1.
