Changes were considered after last year's processional season finale as Yas Marina, but postponed when the Pirelli tyres and 'DRS' system contributed to more exciting races so far in 2011.

"We (have) decided, rather than spend a whole lot of money making these changes, we'll wait and see how 2011 goes first," chief executive Richard Cregan told The National.

He said plans to amend the circuit can be easily rolled out in the future as they have been finalised and approved by designer Hermann Tilke.

"The plans are effectively postponed until we see how things go at this year's race," confirmed Cregan.
