I quite like the Dubai Autodrome, Losail sucks big time.

'Ecclestone prefers money over F1 tradition'

That's a better headline I think...

French GP might be on in 2013.

France, end of June? I'm there, I'm so there!

Looks more and more of a fantasy than anything, especially the bottleneck under the arch.


That arch is precisely why I doubt it would happen. The drivers put themselves in enough danger as it is, and that bottleneck at the arch would probably be close to suicide if they were to host it.

With Europe's near dead economy its logical to look outside the region. Do a 20 race season 5 races in Asia/Pacific islands, 5 races in the Middle East, 5 races in Europe, and 5 races in the Americas. Group the races together by region. A true World Championship.

Why not go to Fuji and make it the Pacific GP.
Or maybe Jerez or Valencia (test track)

"near dead economy"? Seriously?!... Most countries would love to have such a "near dead economy"...
5 races in the Middle East? What about Africa? By the way: the Football World Cup is held in one or at most two countries, therefore it's no "true" World Cup, right?
You should group the races by (public) demand and not by region. I really hated to see those empty grandstands in Bahrain, Korea or India this year. It makes an F1 race look like a minor event which it isn't.
Europe is the home of F1. Most of the fans live in Europe. The best tracks are in Europe. The teams are based in Europe. F1 needs Monaco and passionate fans in GB, Germany, Italy, Spain & Spa who make F1 special.

Hi! Im new hear, but have read on your forum before.

Well, I would like to have the middle-east races erased and then replace them with:

1. Portimao
2. Red Bull Ring
3. Magny Cours

Bahrain is c**p, but keep Abu Dhabi. The twilight adds a nice touch plus this year's race proved to be not that bad.

Russia are spending huge amounts on Sochi. The Winter Olympics are going to be the most expensive Olympics in history, even more than Beijin and 3.5 times as much as London. £31.8bn...
