December 7th (F1plus Team).- The Formula 1 governing body, the International Automobile Federation (FIA) has confirmed a 20-race 2012 calendar once again, with no changes being made from the original version published back in August.
The outcome was revealed during the final World Motor Sport Council (WMSC) meeting of the year in New Dheli on Wednesday, in which they also released the short list of technical and sporting rulings.

A statement made by the FIA this morning detailed: "The 2012 FIA Formula One World Championship calendar was confirmed as previously published."

This means that, as scheduled, the season will kick off in Melbourne on 18 March, and will run for over eight months until the late-November finale in Brazil.
The news also secures Bahrain's scheduled round and the returning United States Grand Prix for the time being so long as the circumstances in each country allow for racing to go ahead.
