2010 Formula One calendar

Overnight the FIA released a revised calendar for the 2010 Formula One season. As expected, the Australian Grand Prix relinquishes its premiere status to Bahrain. Since hosting its first race in 1996 Melbourne has held the opening race of every season, with the exception of 2006 when it was pushed back to avoid clashing with the Commonwealth Games. Ironically, Bahrain was the location for the season opener in 2006.

The Canadian Grand Prix returns to the F1 calendar, coming back at the expense of the French race. Abu Dhabi will again host the final race of the year. An earlier calendar released by the FIA had Brazil closing out the year, but they have been switched back, and will be held just one week apart. That’s a lot of miles for the F1 circus to cover in seven days.

Now that Silverstone has been locked in as host of the British Grand Prix the only question mark remaining over this latest calendar concerns a new event. The Korean Grand Prix is scheduled to make its F1 debut at the end of October, but cannot be confirmed until the track has been approved by the FIA.

The full listing of races can be seen after the jump.
