The FIA has confirmed the final 2017 F1 calendar which will feature 20 races, one fewer than this year.
The German Grand Prix, which was held at the Hockenheimring this year, will not take place in 2017.
Another significant change on the calendar is the moving of the race in Baku, which no longer clashes with the Le Mans 24 Hours. The race will also drop the title ‘European Grand Prix’ and adopt the title ‘Azerbaijan Grand Prix’ instead.
The Austrian, British and Hungarian Grands Prix will also take place one week later, taking advantage of the space freed up in the calendar by the loss of Germany’s race.
The fall in the number of races also affects the number of power units each driver may use during 2017. The rules permit five power units in a 21-race season, but no more than four without penalty in a 20-race championship.
