2016 F1 calendar confirmed, US Grand Prix ‘TBC’

The FIA officially confirms a record 21-round calendar for the 2016 F1 season, but the United States Grand Prix is now subject to contract.
The FIA has confirmed the final calendar for the 2016 Formula 1 World Championship season with only a minor change from September's provisional schedule.

The 2016 season will see a record 21 races take place, with all 2015 events included along with the return of the German Grand Prix at the Hockenheimring and a new event around the streets of Baku in Azerbaijan.

Following a meeting of the World Motor Sport Council, the only minor revision to the schedule sees the Mexican Grand Prix brought forward a week to be held on the 30th October, making it a back-to-back event with the USA Grand Prix, rather than the Brazilian Grand Prix.

However, following the news that the Circuit of the Americas has had a substantial amount of its local funding cut for 2016, the United States Grand Prix is now subject to contract negotiations between the promoter and the ASN (National Sporting Association)

Taipan: It would be a real shame to lose it, one of the best new tracks in years and it's a great, well attended event. Too good to lose, I expect the issues to be resolved. Maybe Rob could make up the short fall in funding?
Well, it was reasonably well attended (although declining) until the Mexican GP got placed 7 days away. The Mexican GP which was developed by the man who got turfed out of COTA and is a good friend of the Bungay boy. I suspect there may be a similar thing going on in SE Asia with Sepang being back-to-back with Singapore now as they are only a couple of hundred miles apart.
