Even given Spain's problems that is shockingly bad. Very few want to travel to that race from the rest of Europe it seems.

Last year I was speaking to a guy who goes to every European race and has done for a number of years, apart from Valencia. Went once in 2008, didn't like it and hasn't gone back since.

This happened 3 times out of 4.

Just one DRS Zone. There were 46 overtakes last year. 4 in 2008 and 0 in 2009 :lol:

It'd be awesome if they cut the bit between Turns 2 & 5. Sadly a misjudged braking point for Turn 8 would result in a dip into the Med.

I'm never quite sure why they have 6 drivers in these.

They talk at the start and then the press get to ask questions but almost all of them were (and usually are) asked to whoever is on the front row (which is usually drivers from the top 4 teams). Alonso and/or Hamilton were asked every question and the other guys just looked bored and left out. And I'm not surprised really. Someone says something like, this is to Fernando, what are the best parts of the track? Why not ask Kobayashi or Kovaleinen?
