FIA announces 2010 calendar

The FIA has revealed a 19-race calendar for the 2010 F1 season, confirming the return of the Canadian Grand Prix and a debut for Korea.

The season will begin in Bahrain, with the traditional curtain-raiser in Australia moving to the second race of the season. Malaysia and China will also host their races before the season returns to Europe in early may for the Spanish Grand Prix.

Following the races in Monaco and Turkey, North America will make its return to F1 with the Canadian Grand Prix given a date in early June. However, the event is still subject to the completion of negotiations with Bernie Ecclestone's Formula One Management group, with the Turkish race set to move back a week if the Canadian talks aren't completed.

The European Grand Prix in Valencia moves forward to June ahead of the first scheduled British GP at Donington Park, with Germany, Hungary, Belgium and Italy completing the European season.

The Singapore night race in late September will be followed by the Japanese Grand Prix in early October and the first ever F1 event in Korea, which is due to take place on 17 October at a new circuit south of the capital Seoul.

Abu Dhabi and Brazil will then round out the season.

The provisional 2010 calendar is as follows - the 2009 one is shown after for easy comparison...
