The governing body reshuffled the provisional calendar at the end of last year in order to slot in the 20th Grand Prix after the planned New Jersey event was postponed.
Despite venues like Portugal, Turkey or Austria being linked with the slot, no agreement was reached.
On Friday, the FIA officially confirmed the 2013 calendar will stay at 19 events.
The 2013 F1 season kicks off in Australia next week.
