FIA publishes provisional 2009 calendar no USGP The FIA has published the provisional calendar for the 2009 Formula One season, with the French Grand Prix retaining its place for another year.
However, the United States Grand Prix, which was left off this year's calendar for the first time since 2000, will not make a comeback.
Abu Dhabi will host its first race, with the emirate set to close a season which provisionally comprises 19 races.
With a new harborside street circuit, Abu Dhabi will become the second grand prix in the Middle East after Bahrain on a calendar that otherwise features the same countries as this year.
There are date changes, however, with the British Grand Prix moved one month earlier to June while, after just one season being held in May, the Turkish Grand Prix moves back to August.
Provisional 2009 calendar: 29 March - Australia 5 April - Malaysia 19 April - Bahrain 10 May - Spain 24 May - Monaco 7 June - Canada 21 June - Great Britain 28 June - France 12 July - Germany 26 July - Hungary 9 August - Turkey 23 August - Europe (Valencia) 6 September - Italy 13 September- Belgium 27 September - Singapore 11 October - Japan 18 October - China 1 November - Brazil 15 November - Abu Dhabi
