The 2014 Formula 1 season was confirmed by the FIA World Motorsport Council on Wednesday and as expected Korea, Mexico and the planned Grand Prix of America in New Jersey have dropped off the calendar.

While Korea’s withdrawal is understood to be because of financial difficulties, there is still hope that Mexico will make its long awaited return in 2015, Mexico having last hosted a Grand Prix in 1992.

For the New Jersey event, the picture remains unclear, as this is the second time that the grand prix has dropped from the race calendar, reputedly through financial worries.

The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix was originally scheduled for October 26, but will now take place on November 23, allowing the US Grand Prix to be moved forward to November 2.

Brazil will no longer host the finale as originally planned and is instead moved to November 9, when the Abu Dhabi race was supposed to take place.

The 2014 season therefore stays at 19 races, with some changes to the running order.
