Looks like we might lose another GP this coming season, the German GP

Re: F1 2013 Championship

No doubt Bernie is already rubbing his disgusting little fingers together, deciding which stupid Far Eastern/Third World shithole to start a new GP in to replace it. It's sad to see all the proper GPs slowly disappearing.

Re: F1 2013 Championship

Who knows maybe the French GP could be rn in place of the German GP this year, as the issue seesm to be about the circuit (Nurberbring) rather than the German GP itself.

If I had to pick which European races had to stay on the calender

Monaco
British
Italian
Belgium
+1 Other

FWIW German media is now reporting that there has been an agreement and the GP will take place.

Re: F1 2013 Championship

Germany should stay, and France, Portugal and Austria should return at the expense of a few crappy Third World events (Bahrain, Abu Dhabi, China, etc). Sadly, that will never happen, but in an ideal world...

Re: F1 2013 Championship

Well in an ideal world many of those souless Tilke circuits would be gone from the calander.

Imola was always one of my favourite circuits. The Aqua Minerale sequence of corners is breathtaking.

Imola would be good, though it would be awesome with the pre-1995 layout (it was never THAT dangerous in the first place, they just overreacted and dumbed everything down 'just in case' after Senna died).

I quite like the re-profiled Tamburello, myself. But it was a great layout pre 95, it's true.
