The FIA has formally confirmed Formula One calendar for the 2016 season.

During the FIA’s World Motor Sport Council meeting in Paris, maximum number of races in the season is increased from 20 to 21, so the next season will feature more races than any other n the history of the series.

Only one new Grand Prix is featured in the calendar – in Azerbaijan capital Baku. But, start of the race there should be scheduled to avoid conflict with the conclusion of the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

After year of absence, German Grand Prix is returning with a race at Hockenheim, while the venues for the start and finish of the season are same. Formula 1 season 2016 kicks-off in Melbourne, while Abu Dhabi will host ultimate round.

Antoher interesting point in the new calendar is that we will have six back-to-back racing weekends. Only matter which is still opened is the venue of United States Grand Prix as it is subject to agreement with the promoter.
