The FIA published a revised calendar on Wednesday for the remaining races of the Formula One season, with the Bahrain race absent.

The Grand Prix was first scheduled as the season-opening race in March but was called off amid anti-government protests.

The FIA then rescheduled the race for Oct. 30 but organizers decided to pull the plug after growing protests from human rights groups.

The FIA now says the inaugural Indian Grand Prix will take place on Oct. 30 and the season will conclude in Brazil on Nov. 27.
