FIA has ratified its calendar for the 2010 season and reinstated the Canadian Grand Prix, provided contract negotiations with Formula One management are completed.

The Canadian Grand Prix had been held at the Montreal track annually since 1978 before being dropped this season.

There will be 19 races in 2010. The season will start with the Bahrain GP on March 14, FIA said in a statement.

If FIA and the Canadian organisers fail to reach a deal, the Turkish Grand Prix, which is scheduled for May 30, will be moved to June 6. The Canadian Grand Prix is scheduled for June 13.
