Not sure about the European tracks, but I know that the USGP is off the calendar (and I think Canada also) because of the exorbitant fees Bernie is charging the venues, more then they could hope to recoup from ticket sales and merchandising...even at a place like Indianapolis Motor Speedway. That's why he's chasing oil sheiks and state-sponsored venues like Shanghai...they will pay his fees for the "privilege and prestige" of hosting an F1 race.

what was wrong with the facilities that held GP's at times when there were so many entrants that you needed to have prequalifiers to bigger grids than what we have now? nothing, untill the flashy new ones came up, and made the old ones seem like the dumps they weren't.
and the money argument is nonsense. the alternative would've been: circuits not going bankrupt to stay in competition to host F1.

It's not a closed shop. Teams are allowed to enter if they want. They just can't afford it because, again, the manufacturers have driven costs up
It is a closed shop. there (were) 24 cars allowed on the grid. for next season, there were up 11 new teams ready to enter, only 3 of them are allowed.

Personal opinion. And they were designed that way to make overtaking easier, so the alternative is minimal overtaking with last year's cars, which, in my opinion, were a lot uglier than the ones we have now
we're not seeing the big improvement on overtakes they led us to believe would happen. in the first races it was better, but that was due to KERS, which most of the teams seem to have dropped now. Passing, as before, happens in the pits once again, not on track.

I was wodering if the manufacturers do leave or are effectively shown the door, who would provide the engines?

And true what would become of TV rights money and the effect of this?
Would TV be less interested and therfore would coverage be less reliable and/or extensive?
