French GP back to July

The latest version of the Formula 1 calendar is expected to be different from the one published by the FIA back in October. The teams discussed the calendar during yesterday's meeting in London but it seems that they are currently sworn to secrecy over the dates – for reasons which are not entirely obvious. Not all the details are clear but we believe that the calendar which will be published on Friday will include the United States GP on June 19, just a week after the Canadian GP. The German GP looks to be on the move from July 17 to July 24 in order to fit in the British and French GPs on July 3 and July 10. It is not clear which race which will be on which weekend but what is clear is that Formula 1 is not going to be taking any holidays in July as there will be four races in five weekends. There will be a three-week gap before the Turkish GP in the middle of August. More at Grandprix.com
