Draft F1 2014 calendar released, includes 21 events

21 races slated for 2014, although three - in Korea, Russia and Mexico - are subject to confirmation, while New Jersey is not listed at all...
The F1 2014 World Championship calendar could feature as many as 21 races next season according to a draft version leaked ahead of this weekend's Italian Grand Prix.

Three new events are listed, namely in Austria, Russia and Mexico, although the latter two are still subject to confirmation. The event in Korea is also included only provisionally.

New Jersey, which was postponed until 2014 some twelve months ago, and which has been the subject of recent speculation again, is not on the draft, even though the organiser Leo Hindery Jr insisted he was confident it would happen less than a week ago.

Like has become the norm, the 2014 season is due to kick off in Australia, with the British Grand Prix returning to July - a week later than in 2013 - and the season concluding again in Brazil on November 30. The dates for all the returning events are all more or less the same as this season, with the exception of Korea, which has been moved from October to April, now included as part of the opening flyaway events.

The race in Austria will take place on June 22, with Russia and Mexico pencilled in respectively for October 19 and November 9.

India is dropped and slated to return in 2015, as reported back in July.

Yes Tilke tracks definitely generally suck IMO as well. Lots of stop-go, extremely long straights that are meant to facilitate overtaking but only really do that with the help of DRS... But Vettel likes them though. If you look through the years these tracks are mainly where he gets the points on Webber. At the old tracks with a bit of flow (silverstone, spa, suzuka) Webber usually beats or matches him but these Tilke tracks Seb just rides the curbs really harder and thrashes the thing around a bit and it works for him. CotA, Sepang and Turkey is/was ok. The rest of them suck, particularly Bahrain and Valencia but Shanghai, Yeongeam and India aren't far behind in suckage level.
