Leaked (unconfirmed) 2016 calendar


Formula 1 is heading to Baku in July next season, according to a leaked but "not yet" approved 21-race calendar.

Following on from news that next year's Championship will only get underway in April, the latest start to a season since 1988, a full version of the proposed calendar is out.

Formula One Management has been quick to stress that the calendar has yet to be confirmed.

FOM said in a statement: "It would appear that the proposed 2016 calendar has been leaked. This calendar has not yet been approved."

As it stands, the season will kick off in Australia on 3 April before heading to China the following weekend.

There will be a stop off in Baku while Germany is back on, to be held at the Hockenheimring, and it will all end in Abu Dhabi on 27 November.
