    Toss-up between John Player and Martini I guess

    Regarding ‘keeping it real’, I did take into account that circuits can be upgraded to a FIA Grade 1 circuit, but that only affected one GP.

    1. Australian GP, Albert Park
    2. Brazil GP, Interlagos
    3. San Marino GP, Imola
    4. Monaco GP, Monte-Carlo
    5. Portuguese GP, Portimao
    6. Austrian GP, Red Bull Ring
    7. British GP, Silverstone
    8. German GP, Nürburgring
    9. Belgian GP, Spa-Francorchamps
    10. Italian GP, Monza
    11. Canadian GP, Circuit Gilles Villeneuve
    12. GP of the Americas, COTA
    13. Singapore GP, Marina Bay
    14. Japanese GP, Suzuka

    So it’s effectively a shortened calendar from around 2000, with the addition of Singapore, COTA and Portimao. Furthermore, the Brazil GP has been moved to the front, while the Canadian GP has been moved back to pair it with the US GP.

    Some more notes: I did consider adding Zandvoort, but realistically it is not feasible to host a GP there, mainly due to traffic issues. Also considered a French GP, and Brands Hatch or Hockenheim as the European GP.

    I’m not sure how to embed this one, but here’s a y0utube mirror if it doesn’t work.

    I think this may also be a result of the organisers of the Zandvoort Masters race complaining about the lack of starters last year. In 2014, the Russian F3 round was just one week after the Masters, so many teams decided not to bother with it and head straight for Moscow. Van Amersfoort Racing was one of the few teams that did run at Zandvoort, and apparently they had to drive the truck day and night to get to Moscow in time.

    Regarding the Moscow track itself, glad it’s gone. Not the worst lay-out in the world, but it has some of the weakest run-off areas, which led to loads of penalties for ‘leaving the track and gaining an advantage’.
