A schedule published by the FIA on its website indicates there will not be a grand prix in South Korea in 2015.
The race was surprisingly included on the 2015 F1 calendar which was revealed following an FIA World Motor Sport Council meeting in December.
The race’s inclusion increased the number of events to an unprecedented 21, but the fact it was scheduled to take place one week before the Spanish Grand Prix raised doubts over whether it would take place. The organisers of the Korean Grand Prix, which was held between 2010 and 2013, expressed surprise at its return to the calendar.
Now the event, which was previously listed as “subject to confirmation” is missing entirely from a 20-race schedule which has appeared in a (PDF) document on the FIA website.
In all other respects the new calendar matches the one which was published in December.
