They'd be far better putting 2 of the flyaway races consecutively in the middle of the season like they did with USA and Canada. The calendar is looking more and more like a European sandwich between the large number of flyaways, and why on earth do they need a month off between Hungary and Belgium?

The Spinninggenius corrected calendar...

Bahrain
Australia
Malaysia
Europe (Silverstone)
Spain (Valencia)
Monaco
China
Japan
Canada
Great Britain
Germany
Hungary
Turkey
Abu Dhabi
Belgium
Italy
Korea
Singapore
Brazil

We're all cheerful about having 19 races, but if we're not careful we might be down to 15 with Spa, Montreal, Germany and Korea not 100% for being on the 2010 Calendar

Teams to seek 2010 Calendar talks

Quote:
Formula 1 teams are to seek talks with the sport's commercial boss Bernie Ecclestone to try and reshuffle next year's calendar because of concerns about travel arrangements, AUTOSPORT has learned.

The FIA announced a provisional version of the calendar following last week's hearing of the World Motor Sport Council in Paris.

Although most of the 19-race schedule, which begins in Bahrain on March 14 is acceptable, there has been some worry about the logistics of some of the events - and especially having the Turkish Grand Prix on May 30, just one week after Monaco.

Shipping the cars by either boat or road over back-to-back weekends will be especially tough – and the option of turning Turkey into a 'flyaway' event would then have repercussions on the following proper flyaway in Canada.

Toyota F1 president John Howett told AUTOSPORT that the matter of the calendar would be discussion during a meeting of the Formula One Teams' Association (FOTA) ahead of the Singapore Grand Prix.

"There needs to be further outline discussions on the additional race," explained Howett. "We need to understand what is envisaged, because logistically there are some challenges that need a major change.

"If you made Turkey a flyaway, you are then struggling with a flyaway to Montreal. There are some issues that we need practically to resolve."

The Montreal event has been provisionally scheduled for June 13, pending the completion of a contract with Formula One Management. Should those discussions not be successful, then the Monaco/Turkey problem would be resolved, because Istanbul would move back to the slot currently held by Canada.

The FOTA meeting in Singapore is also due to include discussions about the future of KERS, with Williams vowing to continue development of the technology, and the sorting out of more details regarding the Resource Restriction Agreement.

Hockenheim holds on to German GP

Quote:
Hockenheim will continue as one of Germany's two Formula 1 circuits until at least 2018 after an agreement was reached over the track's F1 future.

Formula One Administration (FOA) and circuit chiefs have agreed a deal to cover any loss the event makes.

A statement on www.hockenheim.com read: "The FOA and the Hockenheim-Ring GmbH will share in the entrepreneurial opportunities and risks of the event."

Hockenheim, which alternates with the Nurburgring, first held the GP in 1970.

Promoters have predicted a 6m euro (£5.5m) loss on next year's Grand Prix.

Ecclestone doubting Donington Grand Prix
Spoiler:
F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone is becoming ever-more doubtful over seeing the British Grand Prix held at Donington Park next year. Latest photos from the Leicestershire venue show the track to be far from completed ahead of July next year, when it is due to host its second Formula One event.

Having hosted a one-off European Grand Prix in 1993, Donington hopes to be returning to the F1 calendar in the place of Silverstone next year although the BRDC-owned venue still appears to have a chance as the former pushes to complete its project on time.Ecclestone remains disappointed with the progress rate of the construction work"It's not good, is it?" F1 commercial rights holder Ecclestone told The Times. "Even if they get the money, I cannot see how it will all be ready in time to go. It is very disappointing - because we thought it would happen - but they cannot go on missing deadlines."Having already been granted an extension to deadlines by Ecclestone, circuit leaseholders Donington Ventures Leisure Limited (DVLL) still appear to be behind schedule. "They could still come to us saying they have the money but there is no way the circuit would be ready at this late stage," Ecclestone continued."It looks as though we will have to start planning again."


Welcome back Silverstone :cool:

Welcome back Silverstone :cool:

Either that or:
a) they race at Donington anyway, dodging sleeping construction workers and having a bit of rallycross at the same time, or,
b) there is no 2010 British GP.

Brands Hatch??? The facilities are nowhere near good enough and the run off is way too small.
