The track that is located in France is willing to make a return to F1 if Bernie reduces his price.

Here's the full story - http://msn.planetf1.com/news/3213/62442 ... -F1-return

What do you think of this track?

I personally like it, i don't know why but i just do. It has produced some fine races like in 1999. Also i think it's better than some tracks that are in the current calender. It definetly beats Valencia hands down.

Do you think this track should return?

Will it return because we need a French GP and because of Jean Todt's French?

Does France have any other decent tracks that can be used for F1?

Nah, It's okay for other series. But France has got much better tracks for Formula 1

Probably not. If we return to France it'll be on a new track.

So Magny Cours wants to make a return to F1. But does F1 wants to return to Magny Cours? Exept from the race in 1999, I haven't seen anything spectaculair on that track. So if F1 returns to France, probably to another circuit.

I just liked the track because the first time Kimi left a lasting impression on me was in 2002 as he had a chance to win the race, and he used to drive very well here (even in 2008, which was his worst season, he was capable of winning). I am sure there are better tracks than this one in France, so I hope to see a good track replacing Magny-Cours.

I like the Magny Cours, but I really think F1 should do a race on the FULL circuit at LeMans. 8 1/2 miles long, who knows how fast they'd get on Mulsanne...

The original layout would be great to have back, watched some great battles there back in the 80's

Quite a good track with 2 real overtaking chances. Two super quick kinks which are awesome too.

Yes.

Bit of a weak argument, seeing as the governing body itself is French and has been for some years

Paul Ricard maybe. I don't buy Le Mans being a good race - sure, it has some good corners but I don't really think it'd be great. Definitely not the Bugatti circuit.
