A leaked version of the provisional calendar for F1’s 2013 season is doing the rounds in the Singapore paddock.
New Jersey is the only new race, taking place in mid-June just a week after Canada, while Valencia has as expected dropped off the calendar which for 2013 features an unprecedented eight back-to-back weekends.
The financially-embattled Nurburgring’s July date is only provisional, and Singapore is also subject to confirmation, with race officials still yet to agree a new contract with Bernie Ecclestone.
Korea’s race is also marked as provisional.
Reports suggest the FIA is likely to ratify the draft schedule next week.
