Onto 2013: Calendar

20, 19, no its 20, its probably 19. After the 2nd US Grand Prix at New Jersey was decided   not to be held in 2013 because organizers "didn't quite know what they were doing", the F1 calendar has been a big question mark. There have been a couple of replacement options such as Austria's RedBull Ring A1 track - but Bernie ruled it out because the area didn't have many hotels around it.Turkey was hinted to be back  in the game, but unfortunately,  talking didn't do the thing and the contract wasn't signed. So that rules out another possibility of a 20 race season.I thought Valencia would be there for rescue, but as for now, there hasn't been any talks. At least not that anybody's heard of!Another issue: Where is the German Grand Prix going to be held? Troubled Nurburgring or Hockenheim? Spokespersons have indicated that it's the Nurburgring in 2013, but until the official FIA confirmation is released, nothing is too certain. Despite all problems and issues and chaos, here's a partially confirmed calendar:
