similar to the way it was from '04-'07... minus '06 when they needed a holiday weekend to help make up for the '05 debacle.
Possible, I'm just saying two weeks that was because its normal break between races.

You never know until FOM release the schedule.
Like this year, there's only one week break between Australian GP and Malaysian GP, which they had to haul ass for about a 9-10 hour flight distance.
Which between Malaysian GP and Chinese GP, they have two weeks.
Then after the Chinese GP to Spanish GP, there's a three weeks break (which is lucky this year because things could get worse due to the volcanic ash)
After the Spanish GP, Monaco GP is on the next weekend.

As you can see, the schedule is not determined by the distance and where's the previous / next venue. Its just something made up by the FOM. I don't work with Bernie, so I don't know what are their basis. Maybe the cargo company that FOM contracted has a bit influence.
