    @vmaxmuffin

    If you check the other pictures it looks like it is just a path so the heavy vehicles don’t have to drive on the track too much.

    Would non-championship races count as a ‘gimmick’?

    I know DTM have now stopped but they had that ridiculous round inside the Olympiastadion.
    And NASCAR has the All Star race which has a billion ‘gimmicks’ in it.
    You have the constantly changing rules on what qualifies someone for the all star race, the sprint showdown race to get into the race, the fan vote to get into the race, the absolutely mental qualifying format where you had cars going into the pitlane with no speed limiter, the mandatory pit stops every 20 laps with a 10 lap showdown, the $1 million prize bonus for winning all 5 segments and probably a load more I’m missing.

    All of this for no points in the season just money for the driver.

    Hmmm…. going to Long Beach and Monaco makes it almost feel like a reconditioned AVUS should host the Berlin round instead of a track at Tempelhof airport.

    I quickly designed a Formula e AVUS and isn’t too crazy or bad.

    It would require some autobahn armco to be removed to allow the chicane from one lane to the other but seeing that grandstand reconditioned and filled with fans would be worth it.

    Have the track run clockwise (the opposite way AVUS was run), with the start line after the final chicane and just before the nordkurve with the old pit exit being the pit entrance.

    The old pit lane could be turned back into a pit lane from a carpark with a grandstand lining the outside of the nordkurve.

    @geemac
    Correct.
    Nice coincidence that Bahrain first night race is exactly 100 GPs since the first ever night race.

    I figure I would bump this.

    @lotus22
    That was because of this:

    Time for a tough question.
    What do Stirling Moss, Jackie Stewart, Ronnie Peterson, Niki Lauda, Nelson Piquet, Jacques Villeneuve, Giancarlo Fisichella, Fernando Alonso and the winner of the 2014 Bahrain grand prix all got in common?

    What a terrible way to end the race.

    A phantom caution for no reason other than to bunch the pack/create drama and then a terrible call for “avoidable contact” when there was no contact.

    Both drivers are awake and talking at hospital they are being further observed.

    Sounds even better from the Toro Rosso.

    Hearing reports that his condition may have deteriorated and that a statement should be written in the next hour from the hospital.

    I’m hoping these reports are false.

    I haven’t heard or seen anything about that just some rumors DC may have got married in secret.

    A possible ‘leaked’ Rio track design.

    http://www.electricautosport.com/2013/12/possible-formula-e-track-lay-rio-leaked/

    Not 100% sure on how legit this article might actually be but the layout doesn’t look too bad.

    I’d rather have team chosen car numbers to be honest but even that would still be too gimmicky.

    I just really don’t see why this is a thing that is being brought up. There are many more important issues that need to be dealt with and the current system works brilliantly.

    @crandreico
    There are no testing bans for the engine manufacturers though so this is perfectly fine.

    Remember Ferrari as an F1 team and Ferrari as an F1 engine maker are really 2 separate things.

    Well the winner was going to be @braketurnaccelerate but he has said the runner up should take his place so the winner therefore is @retardedf1sh

    I felt he used the original track most effectively to give a very interesting design.

    Adding to the horribly bad ‘Tilke’ style proposals of old circuits here is the 1984 Monza proposal.

    I think someone must have been making a bad joke with this one.
