The FIA has confirmed the 21 race calendar for the 2018 Formula 1 World Championship, which includes a first-ever triple header following a World Motor Sport Council meeting in Paris.
Malaysia drops out of hosting a grand prix, while two traditional venues – France and Germany – return to the calendar. The latter after a ten-year absence and the former after a year’s hiatus.
As expected, the only change from the provisional calendar released in June is the swapping of the dates of the races China and Bahrain, which will be early back-to-back Sundays.
The triple-header will span three weekends for the races in France, Austria and Britain.
The season starts with the Australian Grand Prix on 25 March and ends exactly eight months later with the season finale Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on 25 November.
The 2018 FIA Formula 1 World Championship Calendar is:
|27 May||Monaco||Monte Carlo|
|24 June||France||Le Castellet|
|08 July||United Kingdom||Silverstone|
|28 October||Mexico||Mexico City|
|11 November||Brazil||Sao Paolo|
|25 November||United Arab Emirates||Abu Dhabi|
