BUDAPEST – Formula One teams have agreed the calendar can expand to a record 22 races next year but without increasing the number of engines allowed, according to Mercedes boss Toto Wolff.
Commercial rights holder Liberty Media had asked the 10 teams, who need to approve any increase beyond the current 21 races, to consider the proposal.
"In a nutshell we've basically agreed to have a 22nd race," Wolff told reporters ahead of Sunday's Hungarian Grand Prix.
Team bosses met at the Hungaroring on Saturday to discuss the matter.
"We've got to let Liberty do their business and the business is to grow Formula One and if they are able to attract promoters, we've got to support them," said Wolff.
