2011 F1 calendar revealed, Brazil now season finale

The FIA have announced the full race calendar for the 2011 season, and it is the longest ever, with 20 races overall. This is due to the additions of Korea and India this and next year.

Like 2008, Brazil will hold the F1 finale in 2011

As expected, the Bahrain Grand Prix will host the season opener, for the second year in a row. The only other changes are the addition of India for the 30th October (Race 18), and the Brazilian Grand Prix now hosting the season finale, switching places with Abu Dhabi.

Also, the European season now begins with the Turkish Grand Prix, instead of Spain. Here is the full calendar:

13 March – Bahrain Grand Prix
27 March – Australian Grand Prix
10 April – Malaysian Grand Prix
17 April – Chinese Grand Prix
8 May – Turkish Grand Prix
22 May – Spanish Grand Prix
29 May – Monaco Grand Prix
12 June – Canadian Grand Prix
26 June – European Grand Prix
10 July – British Grand Prix
24 July – German Grand Prix
31 July – Hungarian Grand Prix
28 August – Belgian Grand Prix
11 September – Italian Grand Prix
25 September – Singapore Grand Prix
9 October – Japanese Grand Prix
16 October – Korean Grand Prix
30 October – Indian Grand Prix*
13 November – Abu Dhabi Grand Prix
27 November – Brazilian Grand Prix

*Subject to circuit inspection

Personally, I would have made a few small changes, like pushing Suzuka to the near end of the calendar, to set up a more exciting finish to the season, but that’s just me. Also, it’s great to see the Brazilian Grand Prix back in its rightful spot. Every world championship since 2005 has been resolved in Interlagos, and I hope it stays that way.
