Formula 1 Grand Prix Calendar 2015

Share on:

The comprehensive breakdown of the Formula 1 calendar for 2015 shows that there will be 19 races across five continents this year after the dramatic late exclusion of the Korean and German Grand Prix’s. Lewis Hamilton will be defending his championship for Mercedes again with Nico Rosberg on his coattails, but can any of the other drivers make an impact? Daniel Ricciardo is the young pretender for Red Bull, Fernando Alonso the elder statesman back at McLaren and four time world champion, Sebastian Vettel starts in his first season with Ferrari.

Australian Grand Prix, Melbourne, 13-15 March

The Australian Grand Prix is aptly held in its Capital City, Melbourne, where Albert Park has hosted Formula 1 races since 1996. With Formula 1 comes glamour and partying, so where better place to kick start the season than hospitable Melbourne? This smooth, but high-speed street circuit uses closed-off public roads and is one of the more scintillating tracks on the calendar.

Malaysian Grand Prix, Kuala Lumpur, 27-29 March

The Malaysian Grand Prix takes place at the Sepang International Circuit in Kuala Lumpur, where atmosphere and humidity always lead to a heated race weekend. Kuala Lumpur is the most populous city in the country and the Grand Prix represents the industrial transition, especially in the auto trade sector that Malaysia is currently experiencing. The Sepang International Circuit has been a regular fixture in the Formula 1 schedule since 1999.

Chinese Grand Prix, Shanghai, 10-12 April

The Chinese Grand Prix in Shanghai returns for its twelfth consecutive year in 2015 and promises to serve up plenty of excitement and exhilaration, just like Shanghai itself. The city is the largest in China, populating over 25 million people and is situated on the banks of the Yangtze River Delta. Shanghai’s modern circuit is known for its stunning architecture and the 5.4 kilometre racing track is shaped like the Chinese character ‘shang’, which stands for ‘high’ or ‘above’.

Bahrain Grand Prix, Sakhir, 17-19 April

The island country of Bahrain was added to the Formula 1 calendar in 2004 and marked the first ever round of the Formula 1 World Championship to be held in the Middle East. The track itself is located in Sakhir, 30km south-west of the island’s capital, Manama. Bahrain has invested heavily in the banking and tourism sectors in a move away from a reliance on oil and has a large expat community that provide a sturdy fan base for F1.

Spanish Grand Prix, Barcelona, 8-10 May

Barcelona is one of the most popular cities in Europe, if not the world and is renowned for its food, culture, beaches and of course, sporting heritage. Despite the overwhelming presence of a certain football team based in the same city, the Spanish Grand Prix has proven popular over the years and has been ever present since 1991. The Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya is tough on tyre wear with few overtaking opportunities, but always provides plenty of entertainment.

Monaco Grand Prix, Monte Carlo, 22-24 May

The Monaco Grand Prix is without doubt the most iconic track on the Formula 1 calendar and will surely always have a place on the schedule, despite the globalisation and modernisation of the sport. It is the most prestigious course and has been the jewel in F1’s crown since 1955. Over the last few decades, Formula 1 has moved away from its rich, ‘playboy’ roots that saw daring and dashing drivers literally risk their lives for the pure thrill of racing- Monaco may just be the last surviving link to a bygone era.

Canadian Grand Prix, Montreal, 5-7 June

The Canadian Grand Prix is held in Montreal at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, which was affectionately named after one of Canada’s most famous sporting sons. As if by fate, Gilles Villeneuve managed to take his first ever race victory in Montreal’s inaugural race, making it a truly memorable home debut for the whole nation, but as we all know, his career and life ended tragically in 1982. His son Jacques also became a prominant F1 driver, becoming the first and only Canadian World Champion when he won with Williams in 1997. Unfortunately he could not repeat his father’s feat of winning in Montreal as a home win eluded him throughout his career.

Austrian Grand Prix, Spielberg, 19-21 June

This will be the second year that Formula 1 has visited the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg (formerly known as the A1-Ring and the Österreichring in previous incarnations) after a ten year absence between 2003-2013. The Austrian Grand Prix has proved controversial over the years with plenty of unpredictable winners. However, it’s famed for Vittorio Brambilla becoming the only driver in history to win a Grand Prix by crossing the line backwards when he span uncontrollably over the line in 1975 and of course Michael Schumacher’s ‘win’ in 2003 when team mate Rubens Barrichello was ordered to let him overtake just metres away from the finish line.

British Grand Prix, Silverstone, 3-5 July

Despite being named the British Grand Prix, the Formula 1 calendar has only ever seen race days take place in England and since its first race in 1950, Silverstone in Northamptonshire has held the majority of those races. A racetrack that remains synonymous with F1 over 60+ years has to develop and evolve with the times and demands and Silverstone has done just that, relocating its pits, adding in a new chicane for overtaking opportunities and upgrading its facilities on and off the track. Despite this, Silverstone is still one of the fastest tracks on the calendar and will be for years to come with its contract currently secure until at least 2027.

Hungarian Grand Prix, Budapest, 24-26 July

Hungary was granted its place on the F1 calendar in 1986 when organisers decided they wanted to host a race behind the Iron Curtain and it finally got its spot when negotiations for a track in Moscow broke down. Although a tight circuit through the streets of Budapest was first suggested, the location was eventually set in a nearby valley, offering perfect natural vantage points for spectators. The Hungaroring has witnessed some fantastic races over the years; breathless spectacles matched only by the city in which it resides.

Belgian Grand Prix, Spa-Francorchamps, 21-23 August

Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium is steeped in history and is simply one of the greatest tracks that Formula 1 has ever seen. It hosted its first non-Championship race all the way back in 1924 and the narrow street circuit was both extremely fast and incredibly long, measuring a phenomenal 14.9km in its original format. Spa’s ‘old circuit’ was still 14km long when it staged its final Grand Prix in 1970, but when it was reintroduced in 1983, it had been markedly reduced. Its current layout still uses much of the original track and still lays claim to being the longest circuit on the calendar at just over 7km in length.

Italian Grand Prix, Monza, 4-6 September

The Italian Grand Prix was one of the inaugural Formula One championship races in 1950 and has been held at Monza race track every year since, with 1980 being the only exception when the Grand Prix was held at Imola. The stirring track has a banked oval and is encircled by grand old trees, creating a real amphitheatre that has provided so much drama over the years. The Italians call it ‘La Pista Magica’- the Magic Track, the rest of us simply draw breath and call it Monza.

Singapore Grand Prix, Singapore, 18-20 September

The inaugural Grand Prix in Singapore in 2008 made history as the first ever night race in Formula 1 history, providing a totally new dynamic for the viewers at home and a different set of challenges for the drivers on track. The circuit follows public roads around Marina Bay and is renowned for its safety cars, with at least one deployed in each of the seven races held there so far. Singapore is more than just a Formula 1 race, it is a festival of the senses.

Japanese Grand Prix, Suzuka, 25-27 September

Suzuka was originally built as a test track for Honda in 1962 with an interconnecting theme park, the big wheel of which still dominates the skyline in today’s races. Formula 1 first came to Suzuka in 1987 and it has only missed two races since then when the Toyota-backed Fuji Raceway hosted the event in 2007 and 2008. Historically the Japanese Grand Prix has been one of the last races of the season, meaning it has been the venue for many title-deciding races, with a total of 13 World Champions being crowned there.

Russian Grand Prix, Sochi, 9-11 October

This will be just the second year that the Russian Grand Prix has been held in the Black Sea resort of Sochi after its inaugural race in 2014. The circuit is integrated around the streets of the Olympic Park which was purpose built to host the 2014 Winter Olympics. Although the track is new to the Formula 1 calendar, the drivers have already expressed their delight at the high-speed nature of the circuit that also contains some great corners.

The United States Grand Prix has taken place all over the country over the years, featuring in Detroit, Dallas, Indianapolis, Phoenix, Florida, California, New York, Las Vegas and now Austin, Texas. The Circuit of The Americas is the first purpose-built Formula 1 race track though and has proved popular with both fans and drivers alike since its inaugural race in 2012, leading many to believe that the U.S could finally have found a more permanent home for its F1 races.

Mexican Grand Prix, Mexico City, 30 October – 1 November

The Mexican Grand Prix returns to the Formula 1 calendar in 2015 after a 23 year absence, heading back to Mexico City and the Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez. The circuit has hosted all of the previous Mexican Grand Prix’s since 1962, whether it be under this name or its previous; Magdalena Mixhuca. After an injection of both private and government money, the facilities have been upgraded, while the notoriously bumpy track has been entirely resurfaced.

Brazilian Grand Prix, Sao Paulo, 13-15 November

The Autódromo José Carlos Pace (otherwise known as Interlagos) has been a constant fixture on the calendar since 1990, although the Brazilian Grand Prix stretches all the way back to 1973. The only time the race has moved away from Sao Paolo is when it moved to Rio de Janeiro for several years in the late 70s and 80s, mainly due to the incongruous image of the slums on the doorstep of Sao Paolo’s racetrack. Nevertheless, after a $15m redevelopment, the race returned to the place that Brazil’s iconic driver Ayrton Senna called home.

Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, Yas Marina, 27-29 November

The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix at Yas Marina has featured on the F1 calendar since 2009 and is the perfect climax to a sporting season like no other, visiting 19 locations across the four corners of the globe. The newly built circuit is set on the waterfront and provides a hugely satisfying juxtaposition between natural beauty and modern redevelopment. The circuit also houses a 5* hotel, a 60-metre solar powered Sun Tower and covered grandstands that protect spectators from the desert sun.
