No German Grand Prix on F1 2017 calendar while Azerbaijan avoids Le Mans
The German Grand Prix was formally dropped from the 2017 Formula One calendar on Wednesday, while the renamed Azerbaijan Grand Prix has been given a new date to avoid clashing with the Le Mans 24 Hours sportscar race, Guardian reports.
The absence of a weekend in Germany was expected, with Hockenheim reluctant to host the race in successive years for financial reasons despite it being a home event for dominant Mercedes and the new champion, Nico Rosberg.
Races in Brazil and Canada, whose fate had also been left open on the draft calendar, were confirmed on a 20-race final version published by the governing FIA. Mexico’s race is again paired with the US Grand Prix in Austin, Texas, in October rather than with Brazil.
