Abu Dhabi replaces Canade GP in 2009
7 October 2008

The Canadian Grand Prix has been dropped from next season's F1 calendar. It will be the first time since 1987 that the Montreal race doesn’t feature in the championship and leaves North America without a GP. The first Canadian F1 GP was held in 1967 at Mosport Park circuit. Notable winners include Gilles Villeneuve, who won his first Grand Prix at his home race in Canada in 1978. Following his death in 1982 the current Canadian circuit was named after him. Abu Dhabi’s inaugural Grand Prix joins the F1 calendar next year to make up the full 18 circuits.
