Start, Melbourne, 2012The FIA has confirmed the 2013 F1 calendar, which will feature 20 races.

The calendar is similar to the provisional calendar which appeared before the Singapore Grand Prix. The only changes are that the Korean and Japanese Grands Prix have swapped dates and the German and Belgian Grands Prix has been moved one week earlier to July 14th and August 25th respectively.

The FIA also indicated a new Concorde Agreement, which outlines the organisation and governance of the sport, will be signed soon: “The FIA President confirmed that positive and constructive discussions continue with regard to the new Concorde Agreement and it is anticipated a contract will be signed by the end of October.”

The sporting and technical regulations for 2013 were also agreed at today’s meeting of the World motor Sports Council.
