Also interesting that Bernie comments 20 is the maximum, which I guess is what everyone thought...

I think the four crtical races are Monaco, Silverstone, Monza and Spa for the championship to retain histroical links (My opinion)


I think we will see race 20 and probably Portugal over France as they have taken too long for my liking to get the French sorted...

I cannot remember the last time a GP was held in temperatures below zero but it will give the teams some cold tyre headaches.

I wonder will Adrian Newey run the Red Bulls without radiators?
That might give teams some more ballast to play with if they run a smaller cooling system for the race. Interesting. Also interesting: snow at a GP race. Hope Pirelli has good snow tires.

Nick Heidfeld tried out some for Bridgestone.

I could be wrong, but they seemed to be lacking in overall grip.

It appears there is no future for a GP at the Nurburgring as Bernie Ecclestone has pulled out of talks with the organisers.

http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/105300

With a lot of politics involved in the financial situation at the Nurburgring I cannot see any politican with his or her brain engaged will not want to be seen giving Bernie any money with all the pending court cases against him especially in Germany.
I cannot imagine the Germany GP fans are too impressed with all this.

Argentina and Greece? I wouldn't have thought either country is in an economic position to hold a race let alone build a track.

Marcus666 has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
Whats wrong with Portimao???! They got a FIA type 1T and I believe Portugal is atleast in better financial state than Greece!

Or... ...why not the Dubai Motodrome GP circuit? It looks like it's atleast better than the Bahrain circuit.

I liked Estoril. Is it up to Bernie's exacting standards?

Estoril is according to the FIA table I posted in the assen thread, graded as 2 + 1T, so not currently up to a race standard but ok for testing.

Argentina has race tracks every 100km. They opened quite a few in the past years (Junín, La Pampa, Rosario, Potrero de los Funes, Termas de Río Hondo). The latter is being upgraded to FIM 1 for MotoGP.

I'd like to know if those tracks were built before Argentina's current economic woes?
