The FIA’s World Motor Sport Council has released the provisional race calendar for the 2011 Formula 1 season, which will please hardcore F1 fans who can’t get enough races!
The enlarged 20-race calendar – the longest in F1 history – features an earlier start and later finish than the 2010 season, with the championship-closing Brazilian Grand Prix on 27 November. Abu Dhabi moves to the penultimate slot, having taken the season finale position for 2009/10.
The new Indian Grand Prix at Delhi comes towards the end of the season as part of a series of flyaway races. F1 is now very close to being truly global and in every major market in the world, bar Africa.
2011 F1 calendar:
26/06 Europe (Valencia)
10/07 Great Britain
13/11 Abu Dhabi
* Subject to the homologation of the circuit
