The Korean Grand Prix has been dropped from the 2015 Circuit.

The news means that the schedule shall be reduced to a 20 race calendar.

Sources suggested last month that having more than 20 races scheduled would allow drivers to use five engines in a season.

Lewis Hamilton will be hoping to win his third Drivers' Championship after pipping Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg to the post last season.

The Championship went down to the final race of the season at Abu Dhabi due to the controversial double points system but Hamilton raced ahead of the pack and Rosberg's car troubles cost him.
