The United States Grand Prix remains on the 2012 F1 calendar despite doubts over its future.

The organisers of the race at the Circuit of the Americas recently admitted they had failed to make payments to Bernie Ecclestone.

A deadline to secure the race’s place on the calendar passed earlier this week. Today the World Motor Sport’s Council confirmed the existing calendar for 2012 with no changes.

The Bahrain Grand Prix also remains on the calendar despite ongoing trouble in the region. The race was dropped from this year’s calendar following several deaths at pro-demcracy protests.
