Abu Dhabi will host the F1 season finale for the second year in a row in 2010 after swapping its place on the calendar with the Brazilian Grand Prix.
The Japanese and Korean Grands Prix – rounds 16 and 17 – each move back a week, meaning the Singapore and Japanese rounds are no longer back-to-back.
However the season will still end on the 14th of November, with the Brazilian and Abu Dhabi races on consecutive weekends despite the distance between the two.
