Paris:

Three Grands Prix have been removed from the provisional Formula One calendar for 2014 at the International Automobile Federation's Annual General Meeting on Wednesday.

Races in South Korea, Mexico and New Jersey had been included in a bloated 22-race programme for next season but the FIA has decided to keep the current programme of 19 races.

With a new fixture on the calendar in Sochi for the Russian Grand Prix next year, the Korean race at Yeongam has had to make way.

It also means no prospective new race in Mexico, nor a return to the calendar for New Jersey.

An original 22-race provisional calendar had been announced on September 30 but that has now been reduced.

The Indian Grand Prix has also had to make way for the Austrian race at the Red Bull Ring, although that had already been announced in September.

The only other change from the 2013 calendar sees the German GP move from the Nurburgring to Hockenheim.
