Aren't there some buildings in the way? Not sure they'd be too keen on bulldozing the town hall.

Not until we know you are you :p

They can implement Luca's idea there, semi race in Barcelona and the other half in Valencia :p

I'd love to see Magny-Cours and Imola back.

As if you read my mind. I miss both of them, such great layouts...

I wouldn't care for either. Interesting layouts for drivers, but really limited in terms of overtaking opportunities (especially Imola).

If Magny-Cours is the price to pay for a french GP return, though, I might reconsider my stance. :p

Apparently we're getting a driver announcement on Wednesday, according to EJ.

I'm out all day. So yeah, something will get announced!

Still better than other tracks (Hungaroring for example), and with the KERS and DRS maybe we'll see an interesting races :zz:

So NJ disappearing means that in June, July and August we have a total of 5 races.

Then at the end of the season, 6 races in 8 weeks.

I could swear Bernie confirmed we're going to New Jersey next year. I expect it'll be confirmed back on the calendar by the end of the season.

What happened to the Raikkonen announcement and 'what Kimi will do next'?

There was no announcement, it was just a publicity stunt.

I'd be surprised if he didn't stay with Lotus, though. Since there's no seat available in a better team, it's either this or another sabbatical.
