F1: 2007 Schedule: San Marino & European GP out, Spa in!

San Marino loses Grand Prix race

Next year's Formula One calendar has been trimmed from 18 to 17 races after San Marino and the European Grands Prix were dropped from the schedule.

The Belgian Grand Prix returns after being axed last year while improvements were made to the Spa circuit.

The changes mean Italy and Germany will now only stage one race each.

The programme starts in Australia on 18 March, with the European section opening in Spain on 13 May, and the British Grand Prix on 8 July.

There are five back-to-back races during the season, which ends in Brazil on 21 October.

The loss of the European Grand Prix means Hockenheim and Nurburgring circuits are both vying to host the German Grand Prix.

Imola is left without a race after the San Marino race was axed, with Monza hosting the Italian Grand Prix.

Once again, Indianapolis hosts the US Grand Prix, despite the farce in 2005 when only six cars began the race because of fears over tyre safety.

The Japanese Grand Prix will move from Suzuka to Fuji.

FIA 2007 Grand Prix schedule:


18 March: Australia (Melbourne)
8 April: Malaysia (Sepang)
15 April: Bahrain (Manama)
13 May: Spain (Barcelona)
27 May: Monaco (Monte Carlo)
10 June: Canada (Montreal)
17 June: United States (Indianapolis)
1 July: France (Magny-Cours)
8 July: United Kingdom (Silverstone)
22 July: Germany (tbc)
5 August: Hungary (Budapest)
26 August: Turkey (Istanbul)
9 September: Italy (Monza)
16 September: Belgium (Spa)
30 September: China (Shanghai)
7 October: Japan (Fuji)
21 October: Brazil (Interlagos)

I love rain races!!!!


I was a little upset to hear about Imola getting dropped. I was happy to see about Spa though, and Fuji. I have never seen a race there before. Except on a video game.

Heard the FIA saying something about rotating some tracks, like every other year.
Maybe one will get Turkey's slot next year! FIA didn't like there political podium statement

it does, there would be less a rain threat though if the race could be during the summer months. It rains about 300 days out of 365 in Belgium.

Spa is easliy one of my favorite tracks! Glad it's back. Does anyone know what changes were made? I feel bad for Imola. There's a lot of tradition there. Maybe you guys are right & it will get rotated in every couple of years....

Well, there's a big gap between 15APR & 13MAY. Bernie said if the track up grades to Imola are progressing on time this October, that Imloa will be on for 29APR07
