New Delhi: The 2015 season of Formula One might turn out to be the longest season in Formula One's history in terms of the total number of races.

For the upcoming season, the Federation Internationale de I'Automobile (FIA) has decided to add two more Grand Prix's – Korean and Mexican – which will take the total number of GP's this season to 21.

Korean Grand Prix is making a return after being dropped from 2014 calendar, whereas, Mexico is returning to the calendar after a long absence of 23 years.

In the recently concluded season, where Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes won both the Championship's – Drivers and Constructors' – the number of races that took place were 19.

20 races took place in 2010 calendar, the highest in a single season thus far.

In fact, possibility of scrapping the controversial rule of Double point, introduced for the first time in 2014 season, is also high in the forthcoming edition.

However, longest season of F1 will surely come up as a big challenge in front of all the teams, especially drivers.
