Earlier, the new street race amid the New York skyline was the subject of constant 'on again, off again' speculation, culminating in an early draft of next year's calendar omitting the famous name.

But El Mundo Deportivo, a Spanish sports newspaper, has now published a new tentative 2014 schedule, based on information that was doing the rounds in the paddock at the weekend in Singapore.

The new calendar boasts no less than 22 races, with Monaco, New Jersey and Canada all set to take place back-to-back-to-back in the middle of the year.

Asked, however, how many of the 22 races will really take place next year, F1 chief executive Bernie Ecclestone told Auto Motor und Sport: "Let's say 20 or 21."
