F1 will be happy with final calendar

Bernie Ecclestone claims "everyone will be happy" when he finalises the 2016 calendar.

However, some drivers are worried about the recent trend, with Germany missing in 2015 and the F1 supremo warning that historic Monza could be next.

"Silverstone, Spain, Italy, Germany -- they're the foundations of this sport," reigning world champion Lewis Hamilton is quoted by DPA news agency in Barcelona.

When asked about the endangered Monza, Fernando Alonso added: "The German grand prix is also very important and it's not there this year anymore, so who knows?"

New hosts on the recently-leaked, 21-date 2016 calendar are Mexico and Azerbaijan, with some reports saying Ecclestone is under pressure to drop at least one of the existing races.

But the 84-year-old Briton insisted in Barcelona: "Don't worry. Everyone will be happy."
