The 2012 Formula One season is a motor racing championship for Formula One cars, and is the 63rd Formula One season as recognised by the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA). The season started in Australia on 18 March and will end in Brazil on 25 November. It is being contested over twenty races - the most races in a season in the sport's history - and will see the return of the United States Grand Prix, which will be held at the Circuit of the Americas, a purpose-built circuit in Austin, Texas. After being cancelled in 2011 because of civil protests, the Bahrain Grand Prix returned to the calendar.
