The 2019 Formula 1 calendar has been made official by the FIA following a meeting in Paris between the World Motor Sport Council (WMSC) on Friday. The schedule was officially signed off and locked into place, with the season once again commencing in Australia.

The season will kick off on March 17, one week earlier than 2018. For the third time in F1's history, the calendar will feature 21 races across five continents. The triple-header that occurred this year between France, Austria and Great Britain has been discontinued.

The 2019 schedule will also feature the 1000th F1 Grand Prix since the inception of the world championship back in 1950. As expected, China will host the milestone race.

As it has done since 2014, Abu Dhabi will host the final round of the season.  Singapore will be hosted back-to-back with Russia, while the race Mexico will take place one weekend before the US Grand Prix. Japan also remains on the calendar, securing a new contract following the expiration of its current deal this year.

  • A pretty good calendar I'd say. Though again a bit disappointed that one of the most boring tracks host the finale.

      Yep but somehow I can’t see the title decider coming down to the last race next year either so bit of a ‘whatever’ event and the Singapore, Russia, Japan yo-yo seems a bit crazy.
