    1. @andae23 I remember the same in MotoGP when Qatar (also debuted in 2004) looked awfully dull due to being a circuit amongst the sand and from 2008, when they turned on the lights, it was a whole different spectacle.

      The surrounding of any track matters to the overall viewing pleasure. Even Turkey (which was a good track in itself) looked dull due to no surroundings.

      Racing at night diminishes that as well as gives a great spectacle of dark sky and twinkling lights.

      1. They do indeed look great! But I’ve always been a fan of the pictures from Bahrain, night or day. I like the desert-feel of the circuit. For some it is dull, for me it has a lovely backdrop.

      1. I don’t think it’s whoever will pay what they ask, it’s more of they’re trying to negotiate the right deal.. As I understand it, they’re in negotiations, and it’s the other side (Sony) that are dragging their heels a little bit..
