PARIS (AP) -- The Canadian Grand Prix has been dropped from the
2009 calendar, leaving North America without a Formula One race.

Governing body FIA ratified its calendar for the coming season
on Tuesday and left the Canadian GP off the list for the first time
since 1987. The inaugural Abu Dhabi GP replaces the Canadian race.

The Canadian GP had been held at the Montreal track annually
since 1978. The United States GP was dropped from the F1 schedule last season.
