Only putting this here as we are still in 2014 but it relates to next year...

The FIA have released a bumper calendar for the 2015 season, comprising 21 grands prix including Korea and Mexico.

While for Korea it is a surprise recall to the Formula 1 calendar having been dropped following the 2013 race, Mexico's return after after 20 years out was expected.

Korea, which has yet to be confirmed, will slot in on 3 May, back-to-back with Barcelona's Spanish Grand Prix, while Mexico will feature in November, the second in a back-to-back with the United States Grand Prix.

As expected, the season will begin in Australia and end eight months later in Abu Dhabi.

15 March Grand Prix of Australia
29 March Grand Prix of Malaysia
12 April Grand Prix of China
19 April Grand Prix of Bahrain

So McLaren have finally made up their minds and re-signed Button for two seasons alongside Alonso.

I think it is the best driver line up McLaren could have, just hope the car with the new Honda engine will show promise although podiums and wins might be too much to hope for from the 2015 season

Straight from the horse's mouth, apparently Honda expressed a preference for the McLaren drivers. They also expect the engine to have enough power, but initially there might be reliability issues during the first season with the new power recovery systems.

Recently bought a copy of the 2014 season review and I personally feel it is a rather impressive albeit lopsided DVD title. Disc one has highlights of all 19 rounds running to 4 hrs 15 mins whilst disc two only offers a fairly insubstantial 43 mins of bonus features. I personally would have preferred if they had spread the content evenly over both discs with half the race highlights and half the bonus features on each disc. Having said that very impressed to see the short item of a thermal imaging camera at work on Kimi's Ferrari tyres during the opening laps of the Spanish GP.
