(F1 Plus / Rosie Baillie) - British newspaper The Independent has reported that the Korean Grand Prix will be dropped from the calendar and replaced by Azerbaijan.

“I don't want to go back there.” Bernie Ecclestone told The Independent.

The Korean Grand Prix, held in Yeongam, is absent from this years calendar following complaints about low attendance.

2015 will see the inaugural Azerbaijan Grand Prix held in the streets of the capital city, Baku.

“Baku has been signed. It will start in 2015 and will replace Korea," Ecclestone said.

He praised the Yeongam circuit but said that the organisers ‘forgot’ to build all the things around the circuit that they had planned to.

"They did a good job with the track but what they forgot to do was build all the things they wanted to build.”

The circuit was built 400 miles away from the South Korean capital of Seoul and it was planned that shops, hotels and restaurants would be built around the circuit.

Races have been held in Baku since 2012 and hosts the season closer on the Blancpain Sprint Series calendar.
