F1 2011 calendar

Next season will be the busiest yet for the teams, with a 20-race calendar announced at this mornings WMSC meeting. The season will kick off in Bahrain, but will end next year in Brazil. Of course, that was the plan this year, until Abu Dhabi requested a change. The season will go on until November 27th, so F1 Fans will have a longer year!

13th March – Bahrain
27th March – Australia
10th April – Malaysia
17th April – China
8th May – Turkey
22nd May – Spain
29th May – Monaco
12th June – Canada
26th June – Europe
10th July – Britain
24th July – Germany
31st July – Hungary
28th August – Belgium
11th September – Italy
25th September – Singapore
9th October – Japan
16th October – Korea
30th October – India
13th November – Abu Dhabi
27th November – Brazil

India is the newest race on the calendar, and will be subject to a track inspection. Korea is also subject to this year’s event taking place, if it doesn’t, The FIA may impose sanctions.

It will be a long haul for the teams after the European season, but as F1 strives to reach out to new countries and cultures, it is one that is necessary.

On a personal note, I now need to book tickets and a campervan for the 28th August – I’m doing a road trip to Spa for that weekend!
