Roger says his son Greg has met and had some preliminary discussions with Chase Carey.

I would say the current infield circuit is a slight improvement on the one F1 used, so it would be interesting

I would love F1 to return to Portugal, but it most likely won't happen.

Indeed, Algarve would be fun to see F1 cars on

The Autódromo Internacional do Algarve opened in 2008, with hopes of hosting an F1 Grand Prix. Financial difficulties for Parkalgar Serviços, who manged the venue put paid to that.

In September 2013, the venue was taken over by Portugal Capital Ventures, a Portuguese state-owned venture capitalist, effectively placing the circuit under state management. The sale was forced due to debts accumulated by Parkalgar Serviços, believed to be around €160m.

I see where a GP at Hockenhiem might take place this year depending on the conditions. There has been some talks between the circuit and F1.

Quite frankly Hockenheim should never have left the calendar. So quite right it should trying to come back

Hmm -we need a German GP , absolutely , but the current Hockenheim is awful , and looks depressingly similar to so many other modern F1 circuits (on TV , that is , I haven't ever been). But the old one was so distinctive - that scary , flat out blast through spooky forest , massive braking , more blasts and then that burst into the stadium was quite something, and unlike any current circuit

I agree. While the old Hockenheim wasn't exactly the most challenging of circuits, it did at least have it's own character. Then they shortened it and it became like most other circuits. The saving grace is it the layout does at least offer good racing. But it is still a shame no GP in Germany this year

Oh , it just epitomises how F1's endless quest for quick bucks to be shilled from dodgy politicians in dodgy regimes has been at the expense of the sport's heritage and supporter base. Merc win everything , so no German GP., Max is the new messiah but no Dutch GP until this year after a 35year hiatus , Britain host most teams but gets one GP and Gulf States get two - and France , which invented Grand Prix racing in 1906 does without for years ,and despite Renault's huge contribution since 1977 .

Yes too much money talks when it comes to F1 GPs. We go to venues that have no character and no following. It’s a good job the likes of Monaco, Silverstone, Spa, Monza and Suzuka are still on the calendar, it almost makes it worth visiting places like Abu Dhabi and Baku

If we are to assume ... and for me, it's still a big assumption despite the noises F1 are making... that the double header events in Austria and Silverstone go ahead, should the second of each event be run in a different format to the first?

If the first event is to be the traditional Friday FPs, with Saturday FP and Qually with Race on Sunday, do we need to go through the whole thing again the following weekend?
Could the second weekend just consist of a single longer FP and then Qually on the Saturday and Race on Sunday?

Clearly there would need to be turn around time between sessions but given no support categories needing track time on the weekend as well, could these races be used as a trial for possible shorter weekends or different formats in seasons to come?

I read last night that the proposed calendar was provided to the F2 and F3 support series too.

The big thing about closed door events is that there's no corporate stuff going on. No guests, no sponsors, nobody - so turnaround between sessions can be tight. One reason there's so much downtime at F1 meetings is all the glad-handing that takes place.

It's long been said that each meeting is a two day event stretched across 3 days. Could we see the timetable compressed to just Saturday and Sunday?

... And to add to that, I've just read a suggestion that the support categories might run on weekdays or weekday evenings instead so F1 keeps exclusivity of the Sunday.

Maybe they should just run all at the same time. That could be fun.
