    If you created a race calender for f1 what would it look like. Would you add races would you take races away? *cough*Spain and Europe*cough*. Would you just re-shuffle the current race calender?

    A few small rules.

    -Minimum of 15 races

    -Max of 30

    -Max 2 tracks from the same country.

    20 races seems fine for me. Not sure I’d make any major changes to the calendar, but I would like to see an Austrian GP back in F1. Don’t like how there are two races in Spain, and I much prefer Valencia to Catalunya, so the latter would be out.

    17 races, start and finish at two great tracks with fanatical fans, some old favourites get a reprieve and some new ones get a chance to impress.

    Suzuka

    Malaysia

    Singapore

    India (really hoping it’s a success)

    Melbourne

    Sochi

    Donington (European GP)

    Barcelona

    Monaco

    Magny Cours

    Silverstone

    Nurburgring

    Monza and Imola alternating.

    Montreal

    Austin (like India, hoping it’s good)

    Mexico City

    Sao Paulo

    Here’s mine list that I have saved as a .txt file for every time I see a thread like this rolled out. I’ve ignored the rule about 2 per country. The US is massive a massive country and a massive market, so I’ve given it to have 3.

    1 – Brazil – São Paulo – Autódromo José Carlos Pace

    2 – Americas – The Americas – Various (Rotation)

    3 – USA West – California – Laguna Seca

    4 – Monaco – Monte Carlo – Circuit de Monaco

    5 – Spain – Alcañiz – Motorland Aragon

    6 – European – Europe – Various (Rotation)

    7 – Canada – Montreal – Circuit Gilles Villeneuve

    8 – USA Indy – Indianapolis – Indianapolis Motor Speedway Oval

    9 – France – Le Mans – Circuit de La Sarthe (New mid-length version)

    10 – Britain – Northamptonshire – Silverstone Circuit

    11 – Germany – Nürburg – Nürburgring

    12 – Italy – Monza – Autodromo Nazionale di Monza

    13 – Belgium – Spa – Circuit de Spa-Francourchamps

    14 – Portugal – Portimao – Autódromo Internacional do Algarve

    15 – USA East – Florida – Sebring International Raceway

    16 – Argentina – San Luis – Potrero de Los Funes

    17 – South Africa – Kyalami – Kyalami Circuit

    18 – Pacific – Asia/Oceania – Various (Rotation)

    19 – Japan – Suzuka – Suzuka Circuit

    20 – Australia – Melbourne – Albert Park Circuit

    You many have noticed many of the new Middle-Eastern and Asian tracks are missing. There is a good reason for this. Style over substance, and we all know it.

    But there we are, Calendar with at least 1 race on all continents, a decent presence in North America (boath coasts, and the oval in the middle), classic European races, and 3 slots left open for various tracks on rotation, such as the Middle Eastern ones.

    Actually, I would replace San Marino in my calendar for an oval race. I’d probably have it in Mexico at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez race track, and I’d run it at night time, despite that being inconvenient for Europe.

    I kind of preferred shorter calendars to the 20 race behemoth we are soon to have. The fewer races there are, the more special each race seems. 16 seemed like a good number

    I would bring back the full Nurburgring. And of course Adelaide.

    I agree with Ned – less is better. Other things I took into consideration include:

    a. A true world championship – A championship covers as many regions as possible; Because of this, 16 was a tough number to reduce it to, settling at 18. You’ll see 5 races in Asia, 1 in Africa, 4 in the Americas, and 8 in Europe.

    b. Not having nearby races too close together – reducing F1 fatigue among the people there, maximizing ticket sales potential

    c. US potential – the only country in my calendar with 2 races is the country that needs it the most – the United States

    Dates are based on the 2012 calendar. I’ve also been realistic here, just working with circuits that would be race-ready by then.

    1. Australia – Albert Park (March 18)

    2. India – Buddh (April 1)

    3. Abu Dhabi – Yas Marina (April 15)

    4. South Africa – Kyalami (April 29)

    5. Spain – MotorLand Aragon (May 13)

    6. Monaco – Monte Carlo (May 27)

    7. France – Magny-Cours (June 10)

    8. Britain – Silverstone (June 17)

    9. Canada – Montreal (July 1)

    10. US-East – Indianapolis (July 15)

    11. Germany – Hockenheim (July 29)

    12. Hungary – Hungaroring (August 19)

    13. Belgium – Spa-Francorchamps (September 2)

    14. Italy – Monza (September 9)

    15. Singapore – Marina Bay (September 23)

    16. Japan – Suzuka (October 7)

    17. US-West – Austin (October 21)

    18. Brazil – Interlagos (November 4)

    I’d just get more extreme tracks

    AVUS doesn’t need to be the original location, it would be a pretty easy track to replicate.

    Full Nurburgring or something else massive

    Sebring, Monthery or Brooklands, something fast and made of concrete.

    And an Oval would be nice too.

    All fantasy ofcourse, I like the calendar as it is, a few races are stinkers but but there have always been some races that are better than others.
