South Korea will make its Formula One debut in October next year while Canada will return to the calendar subject to contract negotiations, the governing International Automobile Federation (FIA) said on Monday.

The season, expanded to a record-equalling 19 races for the first time since 2005, will start at Bahrain’s Sakhir circuit on March 14.

Australia, the regular opener since 1996 apart from in 2006 when a clash with the Commonwealth Games pushed the race back to the third slot, becomes the second round on March 28 with Malaysia following a week later. Canada, dropped this year, has been pencilled in for a return on June 13 while South Korea comes in for the first time on October 17 as planned. The championship ends in Brazil on Nov. 14.

The races in Australia and Abu Dhabi will start at 1700 local time, Malaysia at 1600 local and Singapore at 2000
