Bernie Ecclestone says that there may be 20 dates listed for next year but he will not be putting on 20 races next year, although he will not be drawn over whether the calendar will have 17, 18 or 19 races. Ecclestone told the BBC that the dates are yet to be set because of a variety of problems which need to be sorted out, including clashes with the Soccer World Cup and the Commonwealth Games.

"It won't be 20, I can assure you," Ecclestone said. "18, 19, 17 - who knows?"
