World Council tweaks 2013 calendar

The FIA World Motor Sports Council approved a provisional 2013 F1 calendar at Friday's meeting, with some minor changes to the draft calendar that was made public over the weekend of the Singapore GP.

The German GP has been moved forward a week to a July 14 date and Belgium also comes forward a week, to August 25, shortening the record five-week summer break that we saw in 2012 by one week.

Later on in the year, the Korean and Japanese dates are switched, with Korea to run first, on October 6, with Suzuka a week later. The full calendar is now as follows, subject to final approval in December:

March 17 Australia

March 24 Malaysia

April 14 China

April 21 Bahrain

May 12 Spain

May 26 Monaco

June 09 Canada

June 16 New Jersey

June 30 Silverstone

July 14 Germany

July 28 Hungary

August 25 Belgium

September 8 Italy

September 22 Singapore

October 6 South Korea

October 13 Japan

October 27 India
