But it's not really is it? DOTD was a week after the GP last year, and is 2 weeks after the GP this year.

im pretty sure i remember drivers celebrating/participating in it last year so i quickly checked...

race in mexico was oct 29th last year and is the on the 28th this year with Día de los Muertos festivities running from oct 31 to Nov 2.

anyways, for sure it makes sense to twin an event with a local holiday but it can also go the other way.

the traditional date for the Montreal GP used to coincide with St. Jean Baptiste day in Quebec (arguably this province's biggest holiday) and while it was great in terms of more crowds and festivities, it was also way too crowded and probably not enough hotel rooms and bars to accommodate both sets of revelers.

iirc there was some issues/resistance when the date got moved to earlier in June but i think the city quickly realized that instead of one busy tourist weekends they now had two.

We don't know if we still have civilization at the end of this year and we're discussing GPs of 2021. There are more important things than motorsport, guys

We're all here on this forum to discuss motorsport and no one knows what could happen during the course of a year. However, as long as civilization continues, so will motorsport in one form or other and we will continue to discuss motorsport.

Well said. I am sure other forums exist to discuss the end of the world. I'll stick to motorsport.

Question is, Argentina has no need of a GP. We need the money to more important things than a F1 race.

Miami does have a history, with the Sportscar race being there. And it wouldn't be a bad place to hold a race IMHO

Considering they’ve not agreed the race yet, it seems a mighty quick turnaround to eat things ready in 17months from start to finish. Unless a lot of the planning has already taken place behind the scenes.

Out of interest, how long was it from Baku being confirmed before the inaugural race?

I assume this will take the German GP calendar “space” as well? Still hoping for a Dutch GP too, just for variety/new circuit purposes though (as the race will be pretty dreadful on a track designed for bikes)

I'm a bit skeptical of another street race. IndyCar did similar a few years ago and it back fired. Baltimore was unpopular with fans and drivers alike and Boston turned out to be a non event.

Does F1 need another street race? Monaco is the jewel in the crown for F1, despite all the inherent problems. Singapore produces a good night race and recently added Baku has proved to be a fantastic venue. What if Miami turns out to be a dud?
