welcome Adrien :)
I don’t agree that historical circuits are replaced (especially when new circuits are introduced in countries with no racing heritage/history).
I agree however that some circuits would need infrastructure/safety upgrades.
In my opinion no new circuit will ever be as attractive as Monaco, Monza, Silverstone, Spa etc etc.
Minardi-Lamborghini, or Team Alfa Romeo would be nice (replacing STR)
also: Porsche, Ford-Cosworth as PU manufacturers
does this count? Monza, 1995: Gerhard Berger (Ferrari) has his suspension smashed by his team-mate Jean Alesi’s onboard camera (they were 1st and 2nd). Alesi later retired as well.
Hakkinen – Coulthard in Austria 1999 (sorry for the low quality vid)
Fittipaldi – Martini in Monza 1993 remains one of the most epic; last lap and both managed to cross the finish line !!
Keep it !!
However there should be a price linked to it; how about a 5 places grid bump for the next race? surely if its a top driver it wont change much but for a midfield driver would be a great boost (plus more chances of surprises the next race).
Mika Hakkinen replacing Michael Andretti at Mclaren in 1993
Mika Salo replacing Michael Schumacher at Ferrari in 1999
(and it is just a coincidence that 2 Mikas replace 2 Michaels)
I guess we all miss Tyrrell
the 6-wheeled Tyrrell was quite something to look at !
I am sure that more than +1, Keith appreciates the daily visits and contributions to this great site (and community).
I would like to see, from next season Manor F1 being renamed as Manor-Bianchi Racing (or better just Bianchi Racing)… after all its thanks to him that the team is still competing.
thats a good looking car (not just livery wise)… and even if it is not a ‘size 0’
