Still early but there should be 18 races for 2004 instead of the 16 we had for 2003. It looks like Austria is out and Belgium is in. The 2 added races will be in Bahrain and China.
The schedule:
March 7, Grand Prix of Australia (Melbourne)
March 21, Grand Prix of Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur)
April 4 **, Grand Prix of Bahrain (Bahrain)
April 25, Grand Prix of San Marino (Imola)
May 9, Grand Prix of Spain (Barcelona)
May 23, Grand Prix of Monaco (Monaco)
May 30, Grand Prix of Europe (Nurburgring)
June 13***, Grand Prix of Canada (Montreal)
June 20, Grand Prix of USA (Indianapolis)
July 4, Grand Prix of Great Britain (Silverstone)
July 11 *, Grand Prix of France (Magny-Cours)
July 25, Grand Prix of Germany (Hockenheim)
August 15, Grand Prix of Hungary (Budapest)
August 29, Grand Prix of Belgium (Spa-Francorchamps)
September 12, Grand Prix of Italy (Monza)
September 26 **, Grand Prix of China (Shanghai)
October 10, Grand Prix of Japan (Suzuka)
October 24, Grand Prix of Brazil (Sao Paulo)

(I have edited this message, the schedule I originally posted did not include Canada. I don't know where I came up with that one. This one is from www.formula1.com)

Can't wait!

Great for Spa...love to see that race back. But I miss Canada, I thought they were still negotiating about that race (??)
Look also forward to those new tracks...must be exciting when the drivers go there, for the fist time. And I hope they will keep the 18 races, the more races, the more fun!! :D

Yes, it is still under negotiation. I think it will happen. Canada should happen the week before USA.

China? That will be an interesting place to watch a race.

*** Subject to a satisfactory financial agreement with competing teams regarding the absence of tobacco sponsorship

Politics is great and business runs it these days. This is the senario I want:

China says no tobacco ads/sponsors,
Tobacco companies tell F1 they pull all sponsorship if F1 goes to China
Marborlo tells Ferrari it will pull sponsorhip
F1 tells China bye bye
China is embarrassed again (they lost the World Cup to SARS, will they lose the 2008 Olympics?)
China has to change their law.

In the end: big business ruled this government, certainly not the people of China or the commy party. You want soverinty, not in the global market, MNCs can crush small nations by pulling a factor and if above senario plays out, clearly effect policy.

We have a box that my company and some FOC people share at Montreal. Was great last year... although rather wet. I felt bad for all the people in the stands across the way. I am relieved that it is back on this year as Indy does not really do it for me. :D

18 races is abit of an overload for the teams and their crew. But when the money is right, they will not complain, I suppose.

I am so glad that Spa and Montreal is back. I like Spa because it's one of the best circuits and I like Montreal because Michael always wins there.
