    It’s like my greatest dream coming true.Not sure whether Turkey will be on the calender but I hope it will make it.

    I don’t see why the calendar is so spaced out at the end. I would have thought some teams would like to end the championship a bit earlier.

    *Subject to civil unrest.

    Glad to see Istanul Park is on there, hope it stays that way!

    Having Korea in April is a nice twist. I love early season early wake-ups!

    I think 21 races is a bit too much , even dedicated F1 fans have a life.

    What did Bernie say, ‘No more than 20 races’. Oh well, he can always dump Turkey

    I suddenly understand that there was another reason why Bernie wanted to move the 2010 Indian race to the end of the season. He did not want the re-scheduled Bahrain race to close the 2011 season and Bahrain to open the 2011 season four months later.
    Korea in April looks intersting; what will the temperature be then?

      Error. Should be “Bahrain race to close the 2010 season” not the 2011 season.
      Doh!

  7. Austin in the middle of June. I’m sure the Hospital industry lobbied hard for that date, they will make millions off their ERs treating dehydration!

    Very disappointed.Too many dates coincide with WTCC at the beginning of the year for watchers ,goers of both.I have found F1 a little boring over the last year,even being an ardent Brit driver follower and Alonso interested.WTCC is much more exciting,right up until the last race.I know what i am going to watch most after 60 years of following F1
