New Jersey featured on 22 race provisional F1 calendar

The proposed Grand Prix of America at New Jersey has been featured on the World Motor Sport Council’s provisional calendar for the 2014 Formula One season, marking a huge step forward for the second race in the U.S.

The previous ‘draft’ schedule that was circulated at the Italian Grand Prix did not feature the race, but this was purely because the organizers at GP America had failed to submit their application to the national authorities. However, a spokesperson for the race confirmed to NBC Sports in Singapore that the required paperwork had been handed in.

As a result, the race has been given a tentative date of June 1 for 2014, being the middle weekend of a triple-header of races that will see the F1 circus visit Monaco, New Jersey and Montreal all in the space of twenty-one days.

The season will start – as tradition dictates – in Australia on March 16, coming to a close on the final day of November in Brazil. It will be by far the longest Formula One season to date in terms of both races and actual days.

The calendar features three other new races besides New Jersey: Russia, Mexico and Austria. F1 last visited Mexico in 1992, with Austria’s final grand prix being hosted in 2003.

In a couple of other minor changes, Bahrain moves to the third round of the season, swapping places with China, whilst the Korean Grand Prix swaps its fall date for one at the end of April.

It is worth noting that Korea, New Jersey and Mexico are all ‘provisional’, with the circuits still requiring approval.
