Please note the FIA have not released any circuit information, although for the majority of events, the circuit is fairly obvious. It’s also worth noting that this is one of the sport’s longest seasons, and although it isn’t starting until later in March, the racing will contiunue right up until mid-November.

Other changes include the Turkish Grand Prix going back to it’s previous August slot (it was much earlier this year) and France and Britain have swapped around again. The full provisional 2009 calendar can be viewed here in true BlogF1 style, with Google Earth images as well.
