Formula-1 release date in India is expected to get postponed

According to the revised schedule as uploaded on the FIA’s official website the Federation Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) has planned to postpone 2011 Indian Grand Prix across the world to October 30 slot to December 11 slot, subjected to an inspection process called “homologation”.
This sudden postponement in date has been done to accommodate Bahrain. The Bahrain Grand Prix was originally scheduled for March 2011 but was rescheduled for security reasons following anti-government protests.
Rescheduling of Indian Grand Prix 2011 has brought relief to the developer Jaypee group, which has been working against a tight schedule.
