Formula 1 bosses are considering a rescheduling of the Grand Prix calendar to allow for the Bahrain Grand Prix to be slotted back onto the calendar.

And rumour has it that the Indian Grand Prix will be the one booted from its original 30 October slot and given a date some five weeks later: 4 December.

Reports claim discussions are continuing between Bahraini authorities, Bernie Ecclestone and the FIA about the race being able to return to the F1 calendar, with the mooted date occurring two weeks before the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, which is scheduled for 13 November. The date of the Brazilian Grand Prix (27 November) would remain unchanged.

The FIA will make a final decision on 3 June as to whether the Bahrain Grand Prix will indeed make a return onto the calendar, and sources are claiming the sport’s organisers want to have the necessary contingency plans lined up before waiting to see what happens on the island kingdom.
