Formula 1 will hold 20 races for 2013 season, its confirmed F1 commercial right holder Bernie Ecclestone on Saturday.

Some reports recently surrounding that F1 boss may possibly to extend 2013 F1 schedule, he freshly states that 2013 calendar that is much related to this year.

But he not declare next season dates, hopeful that the season will kick off in Australia on March 17 and have its finale in Brazil. This comes despite rumor that the race in Austin could be moved to the end of the calendar.

F1 boss said that European GP was being wiped out, as part of its race-share contract with Barcelona, while the New Jersey race was penciled in – despite him having questioned its future recently.

“It’s 20 races,” said Ecclestone. “All the same more or less.” When Reporters asked if New Jersey was going to be part of the 2013 schedule, he responded: “It is supposed to be.”

And also he added that discussions were continuing with German GP chiefs to try and decide the economic issues that have hit the track – but he ruled out any talk of buying the circuit outright.

“We are talking to them, so will see,” he said. “We need to keep the German race – so we have to do the best we can.

“We will try and save it – but I don’t think the property is for sale.” When asked what would happen if the Nurburgring’s complexities meant the 2013 race could not go ahead, Ecclestone said: “We will be at Hockenheim.”
