As Motorsport.com earlier reported about the imminent split between Amlin and Aguri, the FIA list confirms the team name as Team Aguri against their original name Amlin Aguri.

Also, Virgin Racing is renamed as DS Virgin Racing after their partnership with DS Automobiles.

The Audi ABT team has been changed to ABT Schaeffler Audi Sport after their partnership with Schaeffler, a leading technology manufacturer.
