The same thing happens when they share dates with IndyCar. Nothing new.

Yeah but that's open wheel vs sports car racing.

This is sports car racing vs sports car racing.

Overall disappointing I'd say. Would have preferred the European races sandwhiched between the flyaways with Austin and Sao Paolo earlier in the year and the Asian races at the end. Not having Sebring is criminal but it was expected so I won't harp on it. Wish they would go somewhere else instead of Bahrain but I guess C.R.E.A.M. really is the order of the times.

Also, the Silverstone round will be a joint even with the ELMS.

Looks good imo, the placement of Austin makes sense, the schedule also allows teams to do Sebring as well.

I think we'll have a bunch of takers as it will be the last time P1s can enter Sebring.

Bahrain as season finale isn't more or less boring than Shanghai, at least the night race should have a nice atmosphere.

Typical FIA degrading of the venues. Oh well, good to see the cars at Spa and LM.

The same doubts were voiced this year and yet the field has remained pretty much stable aside from the unfortunate OAK situation and Pescarolo who would have dropped out no matter what the schedule would have looked like.

I'd like to think we'll see a few teams kicking off their season with Sebring, the schedule allows it, and it's undeniably good at ironing out kinks with the car.

Personal preference would see me choose Shanghai over Bahrain every time as a season finale, but I can see how other arguments can be made.

If Silverstone genuinely is a double header with ELMS I'll be genuinely interested to see how that pans out, equally what European season post Le Mans looks like.

I agree that 10 races would be much better... but I think they are dealing with great care regarding the needed budgets and prefer to get bigger grids before expanding the schedule. Also they to have to keep in mind the big unknown regarding the merger in 2014.

Good three points, yep, that's far from ideal.

Even sebring didn't survive..
Maybe they should replace SPA with India and LM with a "2,4 hours of the world-know historical circuit of Sochi" that is perfect for broadcasting.
