Next year's provisional calendar has been released. There are some new countries, which are likely but yet confirmed to host a Grand Prix. And, some may lose their Grand Prix status as with San Marino and Hungary.
"Formula One is already hugely popular in China. This is going to get unprecedented attention," stated Joe Lim, China's Zhuhai International Circuit Director. China will be hosting its first Grand Prix ever at the Zhuhai facility which holds 100,000 spectators. A US Grand Prix goes, once again, missing from the calendar.
