Following the latest meeting of the men-in-sharp-suits-sitting-at-a-big-table committee, we finally get our first glimpse of the 2017 F1 calendar.

I have the USA GP in my sights for next year, but that's no more than wishful thinking at this stage. 

  • 26 March – Australia (Melbourne)
  • 9 April – China (Shanghai)
  • 16 April – Bahrain (Bahrain)
  • 30 April – Russia (Sochi)
  • 14 May – Spain (Barcelona)
  • 28 May – Monaco (Monte Carlo)
  • 11 June – Canada (Montreal)*
  • 18 June – Azerbaijan (Baku)
  • 2 July – Austria (Spielberg)
  • 9 July – United Kingdom (Silverstone)
  • 23 July – Hungary (Budapest)
  • 30 July – Germany (Hockenheim)*
  • 27 August – Belgium (Spa-Francorchamps)
  • 3 September – Italy (Monza)
  • 17 September – Malaysia (Sepang)
  • 1 October - Singapore (Singapore)
  • 8 October – Japan (Suzuka)
  • 22 October – USA (Austin)
  • 5 November – Mexico (Mexico City)
  • 12 November – Brazil (Sao Paulo)*
  • 26 November – United Arab Emirates (Abu Dhabi)

As we saw last year though, the dates can certainly move around. You might want to make those travel plans in pencil rather than pen is all I'm saying.
