F1 announces 2010 Grand Prix calendar

The World Motor Sport Council announces an official 19-race Formula One calendar for the 2010 season.

The World Motor Sport Council has announced an official 19-race Formula One calendar for the 2010 season. It is the first time since 2005 there will be 19 races, with the June 13 event in Canada subject to the completion of contract negotiations with Bernie Ecclestone's Formula One Management. Should a deal fail to be agreed, the Turkish Grand Prix will be moved to June 6 from its present slot of May 30. The most significant change sees the introduction of South Korea on October 17 in the wake of the state government and opposition party last week passing the 'F1 Act' in support of the construction and management of the circuit in Yongam, South Jeolla province. The season will start in Bahrain on March 14, and will finish in mid-November in Brazil, changing places with Abu Dhabi which now becomes the penultimate event on October 31.

March 14 Bahrain March 28 Australia April 4 Malaysia April 18 China May 9 Spain May 23 Monaco May 30 Turkey June 13 Canada (provisional) June 27 Europe July 11 Great Britain July 25 Germany August 1 Hungary August 29 Belgium September 12 Italy September 26 Singapore October 3 Japan October 17 South Korea October 31 Abu Dhabi November 14 Brazil * PA Sport
