MONZA, Italy - A preliminary calendar for 2015 was doing the rounds in the Monza paddock during the 2014 Italian F1 GP.
The schedule, first published by Speed Week after seeing it at the scene of the Italian GP, features all 19 grands prix from the 2014 calendar, plus Mexico, with the old Mexico City layout set to host a race in late October.
NOT CAST IN STONE
Bernie Ecclestone told reporters earlier at Monza: "The track only needs to be resurfaced."
But, according to Speed Week, many of the dates on the provisional 2015 calendar - currently featuring an unprecedented 20 races - are in fact not set in stone.
Organisers of the Australian GP, however, are already advertising next year's Melbourne race, reportedly to open the championship series, as usual, for March 15.
And the report said Abu Dhabi would once again host the finale at the end of November.
