F1 2015 Revised Calendar – No German GP

The revised 2015 F1 Calendar was released yesterday after it was announced the German GP has been scrapped due to financial troubles in Germany. It is still uncertain if Hockenheim will have the race in 2016 but couldn’t afford a race this year due to a drop in ticket sales. Only 55,000 tickets were sold in 2014 – which is weird when a German car is dominating the sport – they’re clearly missing Schumacher.

Below are the session start times for the 19 Grands Prix on the Calendar:

Spain – Q: 13.00 & R: 13.00

Monaco – Q: 13.00 & R: 13.00

Canada – Q: 18.00 & R: 19.00

Austria – Q: 13.00 & R: 13.00

Britain – Q: 13.00 & R: 13.00

Hungary – Q: 13.00 & R: 13.00

Belgium – Q: 13.00 & R: 13.00

Italy – Q: 13.00 & R: 13.00

Singapore – Q: 14.00 & R: 13.00

Japan – Q: 07.00 & R: 06.00

Russia – Q: 12.00 & R: 12.00

USA – Q: 19.00 & R: 19.00
