Formula One will have 20 races in 2015Reuters

The FIA, Formula One governing body, has officially announced the calendar for the 2015 racing championships after a World Motor Sport Council meeting in Beijing on Thursday.

The season will feature 20 races over the year. With the return of the Mexican GP, the season will go back to record high of races that was first set up in 2012.

The Mexican GP will be conducted at Mexico City's Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez. The last time the race was organised, was back in 1992, where Nigel Mansell emerged as a winner.

The Mexican Grand Pix will be the 18th race of the season and is scheduled to take place on 1 November. The Indian Grand Pix was supposed to return in 2015 but didn't make it, while the American GP is also not on the calendar.

Meanwhile, drivers have reached the magnificent Marina Bay Street Circuit to compete in the Singapore Grand Prix 2014.

The drivers discussed about their scenario in the upcoming race. Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton expressed his happiness to be back on the top position in the previous race.

"It was a good feeling to finally get back on the top step at Monza - especially after another tough start to the race," Hamilton said.

"The car was just flying out there after those difficult first few laps and it was great to be able to capitalise on the pace I felt I'd had right from the beginning of the weekend.

Hamilton also discussed about his last performance at the Italian Grand Pix, where he finished ahead of teammate Nico Rosberg.

"Nico coming second I haven't been able to close the gap too much - but there's still plenty of points to be won and I'm glad to have taken a step forwards. Despite the highs and lows, I'm still well and truly in the hunt for the championship and that is something that gives me huge motivation for the final six races - starting in Singapore," he said.

Rosberg admitted that the race in Italy didn't work out the way he hoped.

"Even though it didn't work out quite the way I'd hoped, there were still plenty of positives to take away from Monza," Rosberg said.

"Of course, I was disappointed to drop points to my team mate in the championship battle - but I still have the lead and I'm determined to hold on to it. Next up it's the Singapore Grand Prix."
