    Interesting – Joe Saward’s wondering if a French Grand Prix could be slipped into that three-week gap between Britain & Germany.

  2. Let’s all hope that F1 really starts to catch on in the US, otherwise F1 will be wasting a calendar slot by having two races in the US. Fortunately though, both circuits look good so far.

    Interlagos is still the finale. All is well.

    Back to back Spa and Monza again, niiiice. I might try and visit them both…that would be pretty special!

  5. Well at least they are getting rid of some of the European races. Once they have a race in Africa they will be able to call it a World Championship.

    I’ve misread something – where’s the Nurburgring? Hockenheim was this year, I thought they were alternating?

    I know I’m in a small minority who actually rate Valencia as on of my favorite circuits. The amount of full throttle acceleration thru long stretches of multiple corners is unmatched (maybe rivaled by Spa)! The in-car videos at Valencia are my favorite example to show people how F1 cars work.

    The Autosport article claims that it is Nurburgring rather than Hockenheim that is hosting the German GP.

  9. There are about six circuits still on this calendar that I couldnt give a monkeys about, and I wait to be surprised by the American tracks. Dont see the point of building brand new circuits when they already have some fantastic tracks in the USA.

    As much as I think France should have a GP Paul Ricard doesnt excite me because it looks like a migraine on tarmac.

  10. Come on Jenson….Button all the way for the Brits…Can’t wait until he comes here to Melbourne

  11. Jenson Button lol It’s all about Lewis Hamiliton….In terms of the cut in circuits for Europe, I reckon they should build a track in central Australia
