Silverstone has been under threat for a long time for example, and is still there.


yeah... and Indianapolis is gone... :<>:
Yes, it's gone and I'm sorry about that.

Apart from the 2005 tyre flop, I expected greater interest in F1 from American citizens. Their series are much more at heart and few have shown the same interest in F1.

I would love to see a race in America, maybe at laguna Seca :pray:

1. Indianapolis track is (was) always full of F1 fans.
2. Majority of those fans always were of European roots (Italian, German, Spanish, British, Swedish, Finnish, Polish, etc, etc.). Including myself. We usually don't give a s..t about NASCAR and stuff.
3. Carmakers like Mercedes, BMW, Honda, Toyota all consider USA market THE BIGGEST ONE. Do the math.
4. I would gladly see a F1 GP at Laguna Seca, Las Vegas, NY, or whatever - ALONG WITH ANOTHER GP at Indianpolis. Tradition, I guess... :roll::

Can you overtake in Hungary? or in Monaco?

we'll add another one, but those curves are really intriguing

wat does it mean by "make room " for Russian gp ?

cant they juz add mo races without takin any out ? they could juz slot a gp in any empty weeks rite ? like some races have a 2-3 wk gap between , they could juz slot the extra races in those week

Yeah, but the teams don't really want any more races as having 20 or so becomes pretty tedious and expensive for them. I'm sure Bernie would have as many races as possible to bring him more dough.

Russia is a rising economy, and a huge country where F1 has never been before

St. Petersburg is probable the location since it is a very rich section of the country

Today I read that Melbourne is now thinking about making the race later in the day, so as to favour European viewers. Bernie wants to avoid the race being at 4am in Europe and they have probably found an equilibrium for 2009 by starting the race 3 hours later, making it at about 7am CET time.
