Future Grands Prix?

I see Argentina is planning on joining the list of GP's for 2013


http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/98025

I cannot see how they will get a circuit built from scratch in time unless they are planning on a street circuit.
If Argentina joins who goes?

Maybe it could replace Bahrain until the political situation there calms down?

I for one would like to see a GP in Argentina again.

Wouldn't it be easier and cheaper to update the Buenos Aires circuit (assuming it's still there?) instead of constructing a new circuit?

I believe Buenos Aires is still there. I'd love to see them use the outer part of the track to bolster up the laptimes a little. Add a mile of run-off to the long right hander at the back! One can dream

Here's a proposal I come up with long ago. Using the outter loop, slowing it down slightly, and doing the track in anti-clockwise. Could almost be a modern-day Hockenheim. It works out about 3.8 miles in length:

How about adding no run off.

I hate seeing classic tracks ruined just so F1 can go there for a few races then get bored and go elsewhere.

Case in point : Mt Fuji

Diniz in the Oven! That's one of the overriding memories I have of that track. The other one was of Jos Verstappen retiring his Simtek from 5th place! There was something else that happened to Coulthard, too?

It would be a great track to go back to, but it would seem that something in a new location is already underway.

"Ground was broken on the Velociudad Speedcity site, situated 80 kilometers from Buenos Aires, on Friday (article dated December 19th 2011)."

Our President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner announcement yesterday at Government House the possibility of the retourn the F1 to Argentina in 2013, 2014 y 2015. The circuit will be a street circuit in Mar del Plata.
Mar del Plata is the most important tourism and seaside city in Argentine.
It is the same city that the last january ago the Rally Dakar Started. Excuse me for my bad english

Your English is fine.

No doubt the race will be scheduled for either just before or just after the Brazilian GP. Argentina has a good history of motor racing and has had some excellent drivers. Fingers crossed that all goes to plan.

Mar del Plata hosted the Grand Prix back in the late 1940s.

I think that if it had been 'Nuked' we would have heard about it.

Hopefully these people have got it together in a better way than the people in Texas have so far managed to put things together.

I'd like to stick up for F1 in this case, Mount Fuji was ruined many years before F1 went back.
