The 2016 season of Formula One has just about ended and we've all seen Nico Rosberg being crowned as World Champion and yes we'll have to wait till the last week of March for the next season of this racing championship. But there's good news as the official calendar for the 2017 F1 season is already out and well, there are a few changes made in this one.
The 2017 Formula One features a new date for the Grand Prix in Baku, which has been moved to avoid a clash with the Le Mans 24 Hours. Baku hosted its debut race in 2016 and it was on the same weekend as the 84th edition of Le Mans. In fact the Azerbaijani organisers were keen to avoid a similar clash for 2017 which is why we see the change. Initially the weekend scheduled for this was June17-18, but now it has moved to a week later.
Since the Baku race weekend has been shifted to a later week, the Austrian Grand Prix and the Grand Prix have also been moved a week back from their original scheduled dates. What goes missing in the calendar is the German Grand Prix and well we might not see a Malaysian Grand Prix in 2018. For now though the Singapore GP will be prior to Malaysia and the Canadian and Brazilian Grand Prix are also on track.
Here's the entire calendar for you.
