The FIA’s World Motor Sports Council has taken a decision to re-instate the F1 GP of Bahrain during the dates originally planned for the inaugural GP of India. This means that the rescheduled GP of Bahrain will be on the 30th of October, 2011. Two dates proposed for the GP of India have been 4th of December or 11th of December and most teams have expressed unhappiness at stretching the season so long and protesting to the FIA. One of the reasons being cited for the postponement of the Indian GP is that the end of the year grand gala Formula One awards ceremony is scheduled to be held in India this year, a first. So it may make sense to have the Indian GP as the final race. Meanwhile the FIA has released a provisional calender for the year 2012 featuring 21 races. The new event is the GP of America at Austin, Texas. The GP of Turkey has been included in the provisional calender with a question mark against it.
