MotoGP's ruling body, FIM, has revealed another provisional calendar for the 2012 season, with little change from the previous version.
The most significant change is the start of the season moving forward by a week, with the Qatar Grand Prix now taking place on April 8 rather than on April 15, as published in the calendar revealed in September.
The Spanish Grand Prix at Jerez has also now been confirmed, the race having appeared as subject to a new contract in the summer version of the calendar.
Sachsenring has been added to the schedule for the German Grand Prix, although the event is still subject to the finalization of a contract.
