right length.. just long enough to test the drivers... but not too long and have to preserve the car until the end like sport car racing.

They should pretty much stay fixed as they are for most circuits but I agree they should add another 15 laps to the Monza race so it would at least run to something around 90 minutes.The way modern F1 cars are built shouldn't pose a problem really.

This is done at Monaco.The 78 laps will only come up to 260km and not the normal 305 which would take 92 laps to complete (3.34km length) to keep the race from being too long.I'm not sure if I see the point of that really because of the two-hour limit.Maybe making the Monaco race last two hours or 92 laps (which came first) wouldn't be too bad an idea...

Right lenght. Overtaking is not about how long the races are but about the aerodynamics rules which doesn´t allow driver to follow car in front.

Maybe they should aim for 90 minutes rather than 300k's. That way maybe the slower circuits don't end up being a bore-fest and the faster ones don't end too quickly.

the actually distance is okay
it can be shorter but not longer because of the EU laws

I think that the race distance is fine as you get a lot of action in the about 90 mins on TV.

What are these EU laws? What about Le-Mans?

I think the current race length is perfect.

i think that the race length can be shorter och longer depending on witch track. For example it would be great to se some shorter races at some tracks... Don't you think? Or maybe longer...

i think 92 laps of monaco will be too boring- 78 laps is already a bit dull.
