FIA confirms date switch for Monaco

The FIA confirms a change of date for the 2010 F1 event in Monaco at latest meeting of World Motor Sport Council
The FIA has confirmed that the date of the Monaco Grand Prix will change for the 2010 season.

The move was widely expected to occur to allow more time between the race in the Principality and the following event of the season in Turkey.

Following the latest meeting of the World Motor Sport Council, the FIA has now confirmed that the Monaco event will move forwards a week to 16 May.

The FIA has also approved in principal a swap which would see the races in Abu Dhabi and Brazil swap dates, with Abu Dhabi once again becoming the season finale. Such a move is dependent on the agreement of promoters of the two events.

The FIA is expecting to receive confirmation in the near future about the events in Canada and Great Britain.

Ridiculous that Bernie let promoters pay to have the finale when Brazil has been the best place to finish for years now. It has the fanbase, the history and also, as the homeland of Senna, a certain mystique that some hole in the desert just will not be able to compare with. Then again, Bernie is the man who just said that Senna's death was "a good thing" for the attention it garnered for the sport. What a troll.

I just can't imagine that the new track in Abu Dahbi deserves to be the finalie. Brazil has proven to give interesting results/weather. All of the new tracks seem to produce boring races. I guess as usual the trolls pocket book is making decisions.
