The San Marino and European Grands Prix have been axed from next year's Formula One calendar, which has been trimmed from 18 to 17 races.

The completion of improvements at Spa means the Belgian Grand Prix will return to the circuit after a year's absence.

Beginning in Australia on 18 March, with the European section opening in Spain on 13 May, the season will end in Brazil on 21 October.

The absence of the European Grand Prix means Hockenheim and Nurburgring circuits will both fight it out to host the German Grand Prix.
