The FIA has confirmed the Bahrain Grand Prix will not take place in 2011.

The World Motor Sport Council voted yesterday to revert to the previous version of the 2011 F1 calendar.

This restores the Indian Grand Prix to its original date of October 30th in place of the Bahrain round.

The WMSC originally voted 12 days ago to give India’s slot to Bahrain. The teams wrote to the FIA objecting to the decision, citing logistical and describing an extension of the calendar to accommodate an Indian round as “unbearable” for their staff.

Here is the updated 2011 F1 calendar.
