PARIS (AP) New Formula One races in Austria and Russia were confirmed on Wednesday, while the provisional events in New Jersey, South Korea and Mexico were cut in the revised calendar.
Teams had been angry in October that the provisional calendar included a record 22 races, and the finalized schedule remains the same at 19.
The new Austrian Grand Prix will be on June 22, bringing the teams back to Europe after the race in Montreal. The Russian GP in Sochi, which hosts the Winter Olympics in February, will be on Oct. 12, a stopover for teams from the Japanese GP to the United States GP. They replace the Indian GP and South Korean GP.
