*Night race

Same as in 2016 also in 2017 we will see 18 race weekends and it will be exactly at the same 18 circuits around the world.

Season kicks off in Qatar in March, as usual recently, and it all ends in the middle of November in Valencia.

When it comes to the race weekends order, there are just small changes.

The Austrian GP is now moved a week after Czech GP. Last year it was vice versa.

Also Czech GP is moved to the start of August. British GP is moved from September to the end of August.

German GP is moved to the beginning of July.

The break between races in Argentina and USA is now 2 weeks long, last year it was just 1 week. It will be interesting to see if some riders will come back to Europe and than back to America or if they stay the whole time in the american continent.
