F1 2016 calendar:  Leaked schedule of 21 races
Formula 1 supreme Bernie Ecclestone is not denying the accuracy of a “leaked” F1 2016 calendar.

On Wednesday, organizers of the Australian grand prix triggered the story by announcing that the Melbourne opener next year will be held in early April.

“It’s fantastic that Melbourne will again play host to the opening round of the FIA Formula One World Championship,” Andrew Westacott, Australian Grand Prix Corporation CEO, told Australian media.

“Over the past 20 years Melbourne has become synonymous with the start of a new Formula One season, and we look forward to again welcoming all the teams and drivers to our great city in 2016.

“The new date will see an earlier start time, and fans can expect the same great on-track action and off-track entertainment across the four days.”
