The FIA has published the official 2015 F1 calendar which includes 20 races.
The same 19 races which were held this year remain on the calendar, with the the Mexican Grand Prix at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez the only new addition to the calendar. The race, which was last held in 1992, means the schedule will run to 20 events for the first time since 2012.
Four pairs of races will run on consecutive weekends: Malaysia and Bahrain, Germany and Hungary, Singapore and Japan, and USA and Mexico. As expected the Indian Grand Prix does not feature and the planned race at New Jersey, which was originally given a place on the 2013 schedule, has also not been allocated a space.
The schedule was confirmed at a meeting of the World Motor Sport Council in Beijing.
