Paris - Formula One’s governing body has officially signed off on the 21-race calendar for the 2019 world championship following a World Motor Sport Council meeting on Friday.
The calendar essentially confirms the provisional schedule released by F1’s owner Liberty Media in August.
The season will begin on March 17 at the Australian Grand Prix and finish on December 1 in Abu Dhabi. Europe gets 11 races while five will be held in Asia, four in the Americas and one in Australia.
China, however, will play host to Formula One’s milestone 1000th grand prix, scheduled for April 14.
