The FIA has confirmed the 2013 Formula 1 calendar, with only minor tweaks to the provisional version that was leaked over the Singapore Grand Prix weekend.
The season will start in Australia on March 17 and conclude in Brazil on Nov. 24.
The only revisions to the draft calendar distributed to teams in Singapore is that the Korean and Japanese Grands Prix have been switched around, Germany has been moved forward a week to July 14 and the Belgian Grand Prix has been moved to Aug. 25.
New Concorde Agreement next month
The FIA also announced that it hoped to sign off a new Concorde Agreement with Bernie Ecclestone and the teams next month.
A statement issued by the governing body said: "The FIA President confirmed that positive and constructive discussions continue with regard to the new Concorde Agreement and it is anticipated a contract will be signed by the end of October."
The WMSC also approved the 2013 sporting and technical regulations that had been published on Thursday following sign off by the Technical Working Group in a fax vote.
