Well, a couple of years ago, the European GP was not held always in Germany. I can remember Portugal (estoril) and I m sure there were other circuits too.

Good to see canada !grin! There is safety with regard to the track, but more especially the infrastructures. Bernie complains that the infrastructures of the GP of Canada are old and that they would need to be improved. Perhaps the organizers of the GP decided to spend a few million dollars to satisfy the requirements of Bernie... Today, the infrastructures count much. There is only to see those of the GP of Turkey or China to realize it. Bernie often takes them in example for the others

Canada had a new wall where Kubica hit in the NASCAR Busch race there a couple of weeks ago. The wall was much close to the track.

I remember England (Donnington) 93 and Spain (Jerez de la Frontera) 97 for example. :T:@

Turkey is so early in the schedule. i really thought San Marino would be there, It provides a lot of technical challenges to the driver and car

I loved Imola before 1994, but after that tragic weekend, they destroyed the track. I won't miss it.

#Fear [help]

You know it was just getting to the point here in the US that people were talking about F1 and TV channels were starting to fight over the rights. It seem impossible to me that they failed to come to an agreement over the financial element.

I did hear that Wynn of Las Vegas was pushing hard to get a slot on the calendar. Does anyone know if that is true? DId it not come off or is it planned for 09?

:huh:

Its good that so many new tracks are appearing on the calendar. Its not that I don'tlike the existing tracks, but new tracks = a bigger challenge for the drivers, and they are all on a level playing field. Also the inclusion of singapore and valencia makes 3 street circuit tracks which will be interesting, but I hope they are wide enough for some overtaken unlike monaco which is too narrow.
