The Korean Grand Prix became a surprise addition to the 2015 calendar during the World Motorsport Council meeting. An updated schedule has removed the controversial 21st GP, but the story doesn't end there.

Although the evnt is gone, take a look at the top of the revised schedule from the FIA HERE. It still says that there will be 21 races in 2015, which is the most in Formula One history, by the way. 

Inside the sport, you can't talk about a 21st race without talking about the four power unites allowed for the entire season, which is tough as it stands, before you go throwing Korea into the mix.

The question remains with this revised calendar, which contradicts itself, will the GP take place in 2015? From what insiders are saying, I wouldn't bet any substantial sum of money on it...
