The 2010 Formula One Season Schedule
The 2009 Formula One season is drawing to a close and we are preparing to crown a new Formula One champion. The season isn’t quite over for sure, but Jenson Button is in the lead and can’t be caught with the races and time remaining for his competitors. The lights are shining bright on the tenth British Formula One champion at the moment and he’s basking in the glory and fame of being the champion of the fastest sport on the planet.
Things are kind of low key at the moment and Formula One is currently formulating their plans for the 2010 Formula One season. The World Motor Sport Council (WMSC) recently got together to discuss plans for the 2010 season and talk over the revised schedule for the 2010 season, which still isn’t written in stone. Formula One is planning on coming to Canada next year on the tentative date of June 13, but they still need to iron out a few contract problems. The Japanese and Korean Grand Prix races still have to have their circuits looked at again and approved for Formula One competition and I am sure they’ll think of a few more things that need to be taken care of before we can safely say where the races will be held and when we can start planning a trip to take in one of the races. The Monaco Grand Prix is going to be moved forward one week in the schedule to May 16 from the original race date of Maya 16. Formula One has also entered into talks with Abu Dhabi and Brazilian Grand Prix officials about swapping the dates between these two races, but an agreement has yet to be agreed on.
The final calendar for the 2010 Formula One season probably isn’t going to be finalized until the planned December meeting of the World Motor Sports Council. The following list of races and dates shouldn’t be taken as absolute and you should look for updates in the coming weeks.
Formula One will visit Bahrain on March the 14, before heading to Australia, Malaysia, China and then a stop in Spain is scheduled. Next, Formula One is scheduled for a stop in Monaco, before heading to Turkey, Canada, Valencia in Europe and then the British Grand Prix. After the British Grand Prix Formula One heads to Germany, Hungary, Belgium, Italy, Singapore, Japan, Korea, Abu Dhabi and lastly Brazil.
