We don't need anymore tracks on that side of the world though.

True, but replacing Bahrain with Dubai would be good... just stay away from Losail!

Indeed, Bahrain is an annoying race track. I know it of the back of my hand though due to F106:CE.

It's all about the money with Ecclestone.


Forget what the fans want.

EDIT:

It's more annoying that Bahrain opens the 2010 season, there is nothing like watching Melbourne start the season, we don't need a boring start to the season. :<>:

ecclestone is way too old for the job. it would be great if vatanen took the job really. someone who is very young would make a great calender I think.

And yes about Bathurst, I think this track is quite okay but as you said to narrow. But the track itself is great, yeah? Why can't this guy called Tilke just make good tracks with a good layout?
Singapore and Portimão are really good tracks and not made by Tilke.

i agree. even if someone with lot of money would call him to antartica, he would get a circuit there. and even the penguins will not be able to watch the race as they will not have the money.
and instead of the grid girls, there will be grizzly bears :lol:

Hamilton: McLaren must pick a team player

Lewis Hamilton says whoever drives the second McLaren in 2010, must help push the team forwards and not be a disruptive influence.

Several drivers, including Kimi Raikkonen, Nico Rosberg, and even the newly-crowned world champion Jenson Button have linked to the team, which is expected to replace Heikki Kovalainen prior to next season.

"I don't mind who comes to the team as long as they come in peace and bring peace and want to be productive and move the team forward," Hamilton told the Daily Mail.

Though Button has indicated that he would like to stay at Brawn, should the two parties find an agreement on contract terms for next season, Hamilton said he would relish the challenge of racing against his countryman in equal machinery.

"I'd welcome Jenson as my team-mate," said Hamilton. "He's a level-headed and very committed guy. He earned the world championship and he's done a great job over the years. I couldn't be happier for him.

"He will be a tough competitor next year - whether at Brawn or McLaren.

"Of course, Jenson is going to be a tough competitor again next year, but all I hope is that I have a chance to actually race with him from the start of the year, not from the halfway point, as happened this season. It would be awesome, insane."

Hamilton added that he had been satisfied with his and McLaren's recovery through the 2009 season after an uncompetitive and controversial start to the season.

"The season has just got better and better for us as a team," he said. "Last weekend's third place finish in Brazil, from 17th on the grid, felt as satisfying as a win.

"Everything happened so quickly, but it eventually has to catch up with you - and this year it all caught up with me. I know I didn't always make the right decisions, but I still performed in the way I would've hoped.

"What happened with the stewards in Australia and continued at the next race in Malaysia was a time in my life when I had to man-up with an apology. I don't think people were given the whole story, but I had to stand in front of the world and say this is what happened and I am sorry.

"It was the hardest time of my life but I hope people accept I am human and can make mistakes. As for quitting Formula 1, I'm not a quitter. But at the time my emotions were running high and I may have said things I hadn't properly thought through.

"The reality is I love racing. I couldn't be happier in the sport than I am now."

Weber lets slip: Hulkenberg and Barrichello at Williams

The news remains unofficial, but a well-connected figure on Sunday all but confirmed the composition of Williams' driver line-up for 2010.

The British team heads into this weekend's Abu Dhabi season finale with Nico Rosberg and Kazuki Nakajima at the wheel of the FW31s, but Williams looks set for a wholesale change ahead of its next championship campaign.

Rosberg looks likely to head to Brawn, while Kazuki Nakajima is out of favour at Williams due to the forthcoming parting of ways with the Japanese driver's backer Toyota.

Willi Weber, famous in F1 circles for being Michael Schumacher's manager, let the cat out of the bag when speaking to Germany's Bild am Sonntag newspaper about his new charge, the 22-year-old rookie and current Williams test driver Nico Hulkenberg.

"I think he will be a match for his new teammate (Rubens) Barrichello," Weber said
