    Here’s how I see the 2014 calendar:
    1. Australia 16 March
    2. Malaysia 23 March
    3. China 13 April
    4. Bahrain 20 April
    5. Spain 11 May
    6. Monaco 25 May
    7. Canada 8 June
    8. New Jersey 22 June
    9. Austria 6 July
    10. Britian 13 July
    11. Germany 27 July
    12. Hungary 3 August
    13. Belgium 31 August
    14. Italy 14 September
    15. Singapore 28 September
    16. Japan 12 October
    17. Russia 26 October
    18. Abu Dhabi 9 November
    19. United States 23 November
    20. Brazil 30 November

    I believe Korea will join India in dropping off the calendar and grandprix.com seem to validate that opinion.

    If your wondering why I have a two week gap between Canada and New Jersey, that’s because the FIA have blocked the date for Le Mans.

    If New Jersey doesn’t happen, then Austria will probably be brought foward to 29 June.

    There’s a few ‘stories’ doing the rounds about this today:

    British GP in early May – surely not? The inclement weather of 2000 shows it could be risky.
    As you say, it does seem a dodgy story.

    @Deej92 It’s not a question of whether the British Grand Prix is likely to be held then – that’s besides the point.

    The point is that the original article merely suggested what the calendar might look like. It does not claim it is a real calendar leaked by the FIA. It is quite clearly labelled in the original article as a “possible 2014 Formula 1 calendar”.

    The people who are pretending it has come from the FIA are Motorsport.com (not to be confused with the monthly magazine MotorSport) and it is clearly not true.

    I challenged them about this in the comment section beneath their article (headlined “Valencia left off FIA Formula One 2014 calendar”) but they just deleted the comment and left the article as it is. I’ve since left another…

    Ah yes I see the comment. They should be embarrassed with that article.

    I find the calander of F1 VERY frustrating!! I know F1 is very different but I book in a family holiday 12 months or more out and its all fine, you call a hotel in Malaysia to book “when the F1 is on please get me a room” and no good!!

    I have just anticipated and booked the hotel in the airport (opposite track) in Malaysia 2014- if F1 confirm, I win, if not it cost me- but I take a chance!!

    Is there a deadline for it to be announced? Like many, I’ve made hotel bookings. They’re cancellable, so not as cheap as advance purchase rooms but at least I won’t lose money on them. But if I want to use frequent flier points to travel to races, I need as much notice as possible.

    Yes and no. The FIA’s World Motorsport Council needs to approve of the calendar before it becomes official, but they only meet a few times throughout the year. So while there is no fixed date by which Bernie must have a calendar in place, he only has a handful of opportunities to get it approved.

    Personally, I wouldn’t expect to see a calendar until the Singapore Grand Prix at the earliest.

    Looks like Charlie Whiting walked Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez yesterday with 2014 Mexican GP organizers:

    Here’s Adam Cooper’s blog about it. But if you do read it, be warned. Your heart will sink when you read the 5th paragraph.

    That’s pretty much the calendar that was published at Monza.

    Will the teams accept a season of more than 20 races when considering the max 5 engines/season rule?

    Or will they demand rule change and Bernie to pay for the extra engines?
