F1 2019 calendar gets final approval from FIA

Jonathan Noble

The 21-round schedule will begin in Australia on March 17, and finish with the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on December 1.

The third round of the season, the Chinese Grand Prix in Shanghai, on April 14, will be the 1000th world championship F1 race to have taken place.

F1 has steered clear of the triple-header that took place this year, following complaints from teams about how tiring the run of back-to-back events in France, Austria and Britain was.
