No major changes

The 2019 calendar features the same 21 races as this year, with a planned race on the streets of Miami put back until at least 2020 and negotiations ongoing for other new additions to the calendar. Race dates are also largely unchanged in 2019, though the Mexican and United States rounds have switched dates. The 2019 Formula 1® calendar doesn’t feature a triple-header like this year, but there will still be five back-to-back race weekends.

New contracts for Japan and Germany

Formula 1® has agreed new contracts with race promoters at several of the sport’s most iconic venues. The Japanese Grand Prix at Suzuka Circuit is secure until at least 2021, with local car manufacturer Honda also coming on board as title sponsor this year for the 30th anniversary of the race. The German Grand Prix (main picture above) will also remain on the calendar next year thanks in part to a new deal with Mercedes-Benz, which has agreed to become the title sponsor of its home race.

1000th Grand Prix

The third race of the 2019 season will mark an important milestone; the 2019 Chinese Grand Prix will be the 1000th Formula 1® race staged since the advent of the modern World Championship in 1950. Expect Formula 1 to mark this milestone with some special celebrations in Shanghai next year.
