depends where you live.

It will be approx the same time for European races for those who live in Europe and its vicinities.

NO NO I don't like Night races. Not in F1. It would be strange to see F1 cars running when the sun is down 8)

sometimes F1 tv broadcasting is just c**p, now imagine the problems they need to solve to get quality broadcasting

just like nascar when you watch only but upper side of the car and the lights just glares

im not to worry about that just the drivers and fans safety

i think that the electricity could be a big problem in this way because the night races should be held mainly in asia and when the light goes off for some reason then there is a big problem...they should forget about making night races and concentrate on races held in europe they are leaving such races like spa or some others off the calendar and raplacing them for races on circuits like babahrain,sinagapr etc. f1 was always a world serie but was formed in europe and europeans are mainly watching it - americans do not care about f1 they have their own cart series(champcar,IRl,nascar etc.) fia should make f1 more for fans like americans r doing it this would help f1 not the silly changes they r doing for some seasons now (engines,point rules etc.)

it would be nice...then we have some variations for races...but they have to make it sure that it's safe...otherwise just imagine if you are driving at 320 km/h...then suddenly the light is gone... :shock:
GO FERRARI!!!

They should put headlights for night races... One large 10,000 lumens spot light on the nose of the car (like the one I got on my boat) should do the trick.

Maybe they could put in high/low beams so Hamilton can signal Alonso to move over... :lol:

they'd have some back up generators that would kick in. i'm all for it if it means i don't have to get up at 2 in the morning to watch the grand prix!
