While the F1 world awaits news of a ruling on Ferrari’s team-orders case, the FIA has announced the race calendar for next season.
Next season will begin in Bahrain, as 2010 did, and finish in Brazil at the end of November. The British Grand Prix remains in its traditional July slot, and the inaugural Indian Grand Prix will take place at the end of October. There will be a four week summer break.
At the World Motor Sport Council meeting today, it was also confirmed that none of the applications for the thirteenth spot on the grid had met the necessary requirement, and so there will be no new teams in Formula 1 next year.
The full calendar is confirmed as follows:
|10th July||Great Britain|
|13th November||Abu Dhabi|
*Subject to circuit homologation
