The 2016 Formula 1 calendar will see 21 races

The FIA has approved a 21-race Formula 1 World Championship calendar for 2016, locking in several key date changes.

Signed off at an FIA World Motor Sport Council meeting in Mexico, the calendar is unchanged from the draft version released earlier this year.

The new race in Azerbaijan takes a July 17 date and is slated to follow the return of the German Grand Prix at a yet-to-be-confirmed venue.

The April 3 date for Australia ensures the latest season start in almost three decades.

The Australian race will be immediately followed by China, with former second race holder Malaysia moving to September.
