It has emerged that Valencia has again been left off Formula 1′s provisional 2014 grand prix calendar.

Absent from this year’s schedule, the street race was set to return next year according to a new agreement with Barcelona to annually alternate with the Spanish Grand Prix.

But tickets for the 2014 Spanish Grand Prix at Barcelona went on sale in June.

Spain’s El Mundo newspaper now claims that Valencia is absent from the provisional 2014 calendar, which has not officially been published.

Leaks from an unofficial draft of the schedule, however, are doing the rounds.

The Madrid-headquartered newspaper said: “The [Barcelona-Valencia] alternation is not signed and Catalunya has been planning its (2014) race for more than a month.”

According to the leaked calendar draft, Barcelona will host the Spanish Grand Prix on May 11 next year. (GMM.)

    Thank god. Even playing it on F1 2012 is boring as hell. Too bad Hungary stays.

    Valencia shouldn’t be on the calendar.

    Hungary is a fantastic track. If you don’t like it, it just means you suck at driving. Valencia, on the other hand, is the most boring track in the history of F1. And that’s saying something.

    Good. Can give way to far better tracks.
