The 2015 Formula 1 World Championship will be contested over 19 events after it was confirmed the German Grand Prix has been dropped from the schedule.

It is the second event to be dropped from the provisional calendar after the Korean Grand Prix was removed, though the inclusion of the Mexico Grand Prix will see the same number of events occur in 2015 as it did in 2014.

The loss of the German race means the Hungarian Grand Prix will take place three weeks after the British Grand Prix and lead into a month-long summer break until the Belgian Grand Prix.
