F1: 2014 Formula 1 Schedule and Results

19 races.  5  former champions.  New engines, a new track, and a new driver on the grid.  Massive rule changes, major team changes…

Monte Carlo

The flagship site for Formula 1

The 2014 Formula 1 season launches on March 16th in Australia (watch the countdown here) and finishes in Abu Dhabi on November 23rd.   The 19 race worldwide tour remains one of the most grueling in sports, and includes a brand new race, the return of a circuit that last saw action in 2003, and the marquis events that have defined the sport.

The new race is at the Sochi International Street Circuit where the inaugural Russian Grand Prix will be run.  At the site of the current Sochi Olympics, the track will run around and through the Olympic venues similar the the popular Montreal and Melbourne sites.

The returning race is the Austrian Grand Prix in week 8 which was last run in 2003 and won by Michael Schumacher.   The Indian grand prix and Korean grand prix were dropped from the schedule and have undoubtedly started planning their return.  A couple of venues that were on the provisional schedule, New Jersey / New York and Mexico, were not included in the final schedule, but will make another run at 2015.   There was talk of expanding the schedule to 20 plus events for these venues which was met with a chorus of mixed feedback from all sides.    Fans in those regions were excited to be the epicenter of the sport for a week.  It was always a question, however, whether the already demanding schedule was even feasible logistically.  I’m sure that debate will come up every year.

Former F1 champions Fernando Alonso (’05, ’06), Kimi Raikonnen (’07), Lewis Hamilton (’08),  Jensen Button  (’09),  and Sebastian Vettel (2010, 11, 12, & 13) lead a veteran field welcoming rookies Kevin Magnussen (McLaren) and Danil Kvyat (Toro Rosso) to the grid.

With game changing new rules and two new tracks, and a growing audience in the US, it is good timing for the field, including new entrants, to make a move.
