The provisional calendar will include four new Grand Prix venues including the Sepang International Circuit in Malaysia.

For the fourth year in a row Qatar will host the opening round starting February 27th.

The biggest shock of the calendar belongs to the penultimate round which will be hosted by Charlotte Motor Speedway. Traditionally a NASCAR track, the circuit previously hosted supercross series from 1996-1998.
