Which races should Ecclestone cut? (Poll)

Which venues should F1 keep going to?

Which venues should F1 keep going to?

Bernie Ecclestone has said F1 can “afford to lose” certain rounds to make way for races in New York and Russia – two venues he’s been trying to get on the F1 calendar for decades. He told Autocar:

We?re going to lose some races for sure, there are some races we can afford to lose without too much problem. I?ve spoken to the countries to see what we can come up with.
Bernie Ecclestone

I suspect fans may differ with him on which F1 races should get the chop – so let’s put it to a vote…

South Korea joins the championship as a 19th round this year and India could make a largest-ever calendar with 20 races in 2011. Rome is also in the queue and Ecclestone has been talking about races in New York and Russia once again, though there’s nothing new about that.

    Think about it. The new Hermann Tilke designed tracks are without character, therefore sterile, or shall I call it BORING. The traditional tracks give the most enjoyable racing weekend experience. The Tilke design might be a architectural WONDER, which fits into a nation’s culture, but I have to WONDER where is the racing element in the design.

  2. I think the Dutch GP at Zandvoort should be coming back soon!

    i really would like to see the return of a few tracks.
    A1 RING, IMOLA & FUGI.
    loved those 3 races.
    Fugi owned by toyota?
    Austrai by REDBULL
    and Imola…. who knows.

    What about Twin ring in Japan, moto gp race there and theres heaps of overtaking oportunitys if you look at the layout, long straights and sharp corners. BAM problem solved.
