Seven dates moved as FIA confirms revised 20-race F1 schedule

As expected the World Motor Sport Council has issued a definitive 2017 F1 schedule that features just 20 races, with the German GP missing after Bernie Ecclestone failed to do a deal with either Hockenheim or the new Nurburgring owners.

Because Germany has gone Hungary has moved back a week as expected to the former German date, and Austria and Silverstone have now also moved by a week, which in turn allows Baku to move to avoid a clash with Le Mans. Thus unlike this year Baku will not involve a frantic rush straight from Montreal.

As predicted Malaysia and Singapore have swapped since the provisional schedule was issued, so that they run like this year, with Singapore on its own and Malaysia back-to-back with Japan. Similarly Mexico has been moved back a week so that it is back-to-back with Austin, as was the case this year.
