Formula One has announced the 2011 schedule.

The Indian Grand Prix will be slotted near the end of the season in 2011, pending the homologation of the new circuit in Delhi. The season will also have an unusually late finale--Nov. 27 in Brazil.

Bernie Ecclestone has not shuffled around the other flyaway races, so the season will end with an unprecedented run of six events outside Europe. He did take the logical option of putting Japan and South Korea back-to- back, which is not the case this year.

Brazil has replaced Abu Dhabi as the last race, presumably because India and Abu Dhabi are very close on the map. Australia now stands alone, two weeks ahead of Malaysia.
