Formula 1’s 2019 calendar, as well as a host of technical and sporting changes to the rules, were formally approved by the FIA’s World Motor Sport Council on Friday.

Following a meeting in Paris, the 21-round schedule for 2019 was unchanged from the provisional schedule that had been released by F1’s owners Liberty Media back in August.

The season will start in Australia on March 17, and finish with the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on December 1.


NEW RULES

As well as the new calendar, the WMSC approved a raft of changes to the F1 rules for 2019previously .

Following approval by F1’s Strategy Group and the F1 Commission, the new rules include:

a new position for the rear view mirrors and rear wing to help with rearward visibility
the location of on board cameras will also be changed to get a clearer view over the halo
rear endplate lights will be added to the rear wing
minor modifications will be made to the halo fairing to help with driver extraction

Other rule changes are:

Drivers will now only be allowed to overtake after a safety car period once they have crossed the start-finish line. Previously they had been allowed to do so at a safety car line
Teams will now be responsible for initial scrutineering of their cars and must declare that their cars comply with all safety related matters
A chequered light panel will be used at the end of the race alongside the traditional flag
For 2020, the team personnel curfew will increase from eight to nine hours.

Is this abdication of Scrutineering down to team level? Without independant scrutineering, that sounds like a recipe for many a cheat going on
