Several months typically pass between when the FIA releases the provisional calendar for the next year's Formula One World Championship and when it releases the final version. The gap is usually bridged by a fair share of back-and-forth speculation over which races will make the cut, but this year's has looked even more feverish than usual from where we sit, principally for one reason: namely, that the provisional calendar included a new race in New Jersey.
Formula One fans in North America were justifiably excited when the FIA published its provisional calendar for next season. Not only did it include the perennial Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal and the (still new) US Grand Prix in Austin, but also races in both New Jersey and Mexico. But a lot can change in between the provisional calendar and the finalized one. And the latest reports from the F1 circuit indicate that both the grands prix in Jersey and Mexico might not make the cut.
