Abu Dhabi will host the final round of the 2010 Formula 1 world championship after a late date change was confirmed by the FIA World Council today.
The season finale was originally scheduled to be the Brazilian Grand Prix at Interlagos on November 14, however that date has now been taken by Abu Dhabi's Yas Marina circuit, with Interlagos moving back to November 7 to avoid a date clash with Brazil's presidential elections.
Abu Dhabi's night race concluded the schedule this year on its introduction to the calendar, but it had been set to move ahead of Brazil in the order for 2010.
