Formula One could have 20 races again next season following the pencilling in of an unspecified European race to replace a postponed round in New Jersey.

The FIA has moved the German Grand Prix forward a week to July the 7th, and they've reserved July the 21st for another European event, subject to approval of national bodies.

Istanbul, where the FIA is currently meeting, is a likely option with renewed talk in recent days of the Turkish Grand Prix making a return to the calendar after being dropped this year.
