It'll be another sunset finale for F1 in Abu Dhabi in 2010

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 final 2010 F1 calendar revealed today by the FIA sees the last two races switched around and confirms F1 will have 19 races next year.

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.

Here’s the calendar in full:
