Abu Dhabi is optimistic of F1 calendar change

Abu Dhabi Grand Prix chiefs have urged the FIA for bringing last minute change in the calendar of the race event for turning it into the season finale. World Motor Sport Council is meeting on Friday for releasing the calendar for the forthcoming event.

The Yas Marina race was originally scheduled to take place on October 31, 2010 while the Brazilian Grand Prix has provided November 14 as a final date for the event. However, mutual understanding of both parties is needed for brining any change in the calendar.

Speaking at a motorsport business forum in Monaco on Wednesday Yas Marina's CEO Richard Cregan hopes for a comfortable calendar change and added, " We want to make sure that we do the grand prix equally as good as we did this year, and we have a lot of work to do to make sure that happens. That will be our focus.”

Cregan further added that Abu Dhabi did very well in the inaugural event last month and adequate arrangements are being made for the next year event.
