The 2017 Formula One calendar has once again been modified, here is the final list. During the 2017 season, drivers and teams will be tested through a 20-race calendar. Now, Formula One will not clash with the Le Mans 24 Hours event, along with other important updates.

Here is the finalised 2017 Formula One calendar:

  • Melbourne, Australian GP - March 26, 2017
  • Shanghai, Chinese GP - April 9, 2017
  • Bahrain, Bahrain GP - April 16, 2017
  • Sochi, Russian GP - April 30, 2017
  • Barcelona, Spanish GP - May 14, 2017
  • Monte Carlo, Monaco GP - May 28, 2017
  • Montreal, Canadian GP - June 11, 2017
  • Baku, Azerbaijan/European GP - June 25, 2017
  • Spielberg, Austrian GP - July 9, 2017
  • Silverstone, British GP - July 16, 2017
  • Budapest, Hungarian GP - July 30, 2017
  • Spa-Francorchamps, Belgium GP - August 27, 2017
  • Monza, Italian GP - September 3, 2017
  • Singapore, Singapore GP - September 17, 2017
  • Sepang, Malaysian GP - October 1, 2017
  • Suzuka, Japanese GP - October 8, 2017
  • Austin, US GP - October 22, 2017
  • Mexico City, Mexican GP - October 29, 2017
  • Sao Paulo, Brazilian GP - November 12, 2017
  • Abu Dhabi, Abu Dhabi GP - November 26, 2017

Unfortunately, Formula One officials have confirmed that the German GP has been dropped. Hockenheim GP was reintroduced into the F1 calendar during 2016 on a special deal. The circuit organisers and F1 officials could not come to a reasonable deal.

During the 2016 season, Formula One teams had to work hard during seven back-to-back races. For 2017, they have reduced back-to-back races to five times. This surely will ease the pressure on teams, drivers, and technicians, who are under immense pressure.
