Although it still needs to be formally approved by the FIA World Motor Sport Council on October 12, it's unlikely many changes will be made.

The season will begin in Australia on March 17 and finish on December 1 in Abu Dhabi.

The order of some races have been shuffled around compared to this season. The Singapore GP will now form a back-to-back with Russia on September 22/9, while Mexico will take place the weekend before the United States GP.
