And we are speaking about British here.
In other terms, I dont think they will change the shape of Donington circuit.
Monte Carlo isnt wide enough too and they race over there for 50 years.
The new Singapore circuit isnt wide enough also.
Maybe Bernie aims for something else or he knows something better than us as the other fella said. ;)
Lets wait to see
I agree with you on the Turk GP. But when you take Monte Carlo & Singapore, they are just pieces in a museum. Bernie wants a nightrace & singapore says " Hurray we will do it " .. Bernie wants a street race which can earn more glitz and glamour to F1 - " Lets go to Monaco ".
But moving to Donnington is an interesting decision. I haven't seen any races on this track, but i have tried this track in rFactor. Not a bad one. Reminds me a little bit of the A1 Ring. The track does lay around some steep uprise and down slopes. If i am not wrong i remember a hairpin in the final sector leading to the start finish, that should be a place to offer overtaking. With regards to overtaking i think it really depends more than a street or racing track being wide enough. Today's F1 cars don't have that huge jump in power to simply pass someone on a straight line. So they basically need good curves, esp hairpins like the one in France & Canada. I wouldn't discard this circuit completely, but with the exception of Sector 1 .. Silverstone is a nice track for me to driver in rFactor !
