2016 Formula One calendar finalised

A single amendment to 2016 Formula One calendar has been agreed by the FIA World Motor Sport Council.

This involves the Mexico Grand Prix, which is brought forward by a week (thereby returning the event to its originally proposed date).

Unfortunately, serious doubts remain about the USA race. That's because Texas has reduced annual funding to the Circuit of the Americas from $25.0M to $18.5M, leaving the promoters with a huge budgetary deficit.
