    Although yet to be confimed, Korea will be back in F1 for 2015. The track is currently TBA although the track seems likely to be Mokpo (which hosted the GP from 2010 to 2013) or the new Seoul street circuit idea. The race is expected to take place after Bahrain as the fifth destination of the season taking place a week before the Spanish Grand Prix. This pushes the Grand Prix number from 20 to 21.

    It'll be at the circuit we know and love. It basically only produces one really exciting moment a race, the first sector of the first lap. The run down to turn 3 is great to watch. After that, it's usually a dullfest not watched by anyone.

    Its only on the calendar because if the calendar goes above 20 races, the teams can go back to using 5 Power Units

    Nice, so maybe it isn't all that bad. :)

    But of the circuits to have dropped off the calendar in the last few year - Korea, India, Valencia, Turkey and France. Korea isn't exactly the one we'd have hoped for (see bold).
