2017 season F1 calendar

This week the FIA's World Motor Sport Council gathered together to sign off on the official sporting calendars for the coming season, and F1 in 2017 is starting to take shape. The season starts in late March and goes through to November 26th, visiting 20 venues across the globe along the way. The notable exception this year is that the German Grand Prix has dropped off the calendar after failing to come to an agreement with the sport's promoters.

Other notable tweaks this year include Bahrain and China swapping positions at the start of the season, the Australian opener taking place a week later than in 2016, and July dropping back to just three races rather than the bumper four that occurred this year. October remains a bumper month, though, with four fabulous races leading us towards the 2017 season conclusion.
