Somehow I doubt that.

I’ve watched all of them.There is a lot of inverted snobbery about F1 among some people who class themselves as “real motor sport fans” who delight in playing tall poppy syndrome with F1.

The sooner the tally poppy leaves for his rap career the sooner I might watch again. Not to mention some teams allowed to cheat endlessly but others being protested for doing the same thing, when a certain engine supplier decides they should...

I don't think that's true either, F1 has been producing some great racing (and I am a huge IndyCar fan).

IndyCar is proof that you don't need to be the fastest category to produce great racing

Many moons ago we used to race cars down the main street and a certain hot rod was known to lift the front wheels changing up to second. The police station was one street away and they did nothing. As for a street race around Cronulla, I think it will never happen.

It was a more tongue in cheeky response that if Melbourne gets a sniff of Sydney trying to get another international event, they come in and steel it.

Performance differences aside, the 2 on the same bill wouldn't work.

On the other hand, why doesn't Adelaide or Perth have a crack. Perth might get some legs on it, given the Penske business interest over there, so you never know. I would even consider running them at Townsville, just for the shear entertainment factor of that track, given a some decent corners for overtaking.

Whilst the east coast has many time difference benefit of broadcasting back to the states, sometimes you got to think outside the box....
