The World Council meets today

The FIA World Council will meet today in Monte Carlo but there will be little Formula 1 activity because of the cancellation of the Formula 1 Commission which had originally been scheduled for yesterday. The cancellation of the F1 Commission meeting caused considerable upset amongst the members of the body but it is not expected that the World Council will be discussing what has happened as the council traditionally sides with FIA president Max Mosley. There was a vote against Mosley last summer over the question of the future of karting but no such action is expected at this meeting. The World Council will publish the Formula 1 calendar which will feature 19 races, including four in the month of July.

The full calendar which we expect to be announced will be: March 6, Australia; March 20, Malaysia; April 3, Bahrain; April 24, San Marino; May 8, Spain; May 22, Monaco; May 29, Grand Prix of Europe (Nurburgring); June 12, Canada; June 19, United States (Indianapolis); July 3, France; July 10, Great Britain; July 24, Germany (Hockenheim); July 31, Hungary; August 21, Turkey; September 4, Italy; September 11, Belgium; September 25, Brazil; October 9, Japan and October 16, China.
