20-race 2015 calendar surfaces at Monza
A preliminary calendar for 2015 is doing the rounds in the Monza paddock.
The schedule, first published by Speed Week after seeing it at the scene of the Italian grand prix, features all 19 grands prix that are on this year's calendar, plus Mexico, with the old Mexico City layout set to host a race in late October.
"The track only needs to be resurfaced," Bernie Ecclestone told reporters earlier at Monza.
But according to Speed Week, many of the dates on the provisional 2015 calendar - currently featuring an unprecedented 20 races - are in fact not set in stone.
Organisers of the Australian grand prix, however, are already advertising next year's Melbourne race, reportedly to open the world championship as usual, for March 15.
And the report said Abu Dhabi will once again host the finale at the end of November.
