The 2014 Formula 1 calendar appears still to be in a state of flux and is yet to be finalised.

Initially, when the new agreement between Red Bull magnate Dietrich Mateschitz and Bernie Ecclestone was announced, it was said next year’s Austrian Grand Prix would take place on July 6.

Then it emerged that the date had been brought forward by a week, to June 29.

“This is no problem,” a local hotelier told Kleine Zeitung newspaper. “We had expected this, so we just move all the bookings in parallel.”

APA news agency now reports that yet another change to the provisional Austrian Grand Prix date for 2014 has been made.

The race at the refurbished Red Bull-Ring has now sped forward by another week, to June 22.

“According to what we know now,” a Red Bull spokesperson confirmed, “the race will – at a probability of 99 per cent – take place on the weekend of June 22.” (GMM.)

    Hopefully someone with half a brain makes a sensible schedule!!!!!!!

    Too many 3 week breaks and the antiquated holiday month of August is just plain stupid in this age.

    2014, starting early with more testing, ok, sure, keep the August break…. but seriously, 2 races in 7 weeks is just LAME!!!

    Start from one part of the world and move down, i.e. Australia to Asia, then the Middle East and Europe, then North America, then move down through to Mexico and go to Brasil to finish it off. Saves plane fuel, makes scheduling better, and simplifies the whole circuit of races for the year.
