Follow Viknesh

Motorsports governing body the FIA has revealed its final calendar for the 2014 Formula One season, and the American Grand Prix, which was to be held in New Jersey on June 1, is no longer included. The good news is that the United States Grand Prix, held at Austin's Circuit of the Americas, is still on the calendar.

After a meeting of the World Motor Sport Council in Paris on Wednesday, the FIA decided that the 2014 calendar will have just 19 races, down from a proposed 22 races. That means three proposed races needed to be cut, and one of these was the on again/off again race in New Jersey. Also getting the cut was a proposed race in Mexico as well as the Korean Grand Prix, which was widely expected to be left off the 2014 calendar due to waning popularity.

Two new races are included in the 2014 calendar, however. One will take place in Austria, most likely at the former A1-Ring in Spielberg. The track held the last Austrian Grand Prix back in 2003 and is now known as the Red Bull Ring. The other new race will be the Russian Grand Prix taking place at the newly built Sochi Circuit.

The 2014 FIA Formula One World Championship calendar is confirmed as follows:

16/03     Australian Grand Prix
30/03     Malaysian Grand Prix
06/04     Bahrain Grand Prix
20/04     Chinese Grand Prix
