Formula 2 will split from the World Touring Car Championship next season, and today had its own eight-event calendar approved by the FIA World Motor Sport Council.
The 2011 schedule will feature six current Formula 1 circuits and two former grand prix circuits.
It will open, as this year, with Silverstone in April, before moving on to Magny-Cours, Spa Francorchamps, Nurburgring, Brands Hatch and the renovated Red Bull Ring in Austria (formerly the A1 Ring). It will conclude with rounds at Monza and Barcelona.
"The Formula 2 championship is now well established with its unique proposition providing outstanding performance, equality and reliability at remarkably low cost," series boss Jonathan Palmer said.
"After two successful years we wanted to enhance F2 still further and our superb 2011 calendar now comprises exclusively outstanding circuits including mainly F1 tracks, which our F1 targeting drivers obviously favour."
