Which Circuits for FOTA championship?

As discussed here, http://tentenths.com/forum/showthread.php?t=116523 with FOTA breaking away what does it mean for the circuits? IIRC the FIA has the right to the title Grand Prix and indeed Formula One (although that may be Bernie).

So, it raises the question of what these breakaway races will be and where will they be held?

I suspect we may well be looking at the traditional circuits, such as Monza and Silverstone, not to mention Nurburgring, but I suspect Monaco will be dropped because of it's links with the FIA and Bernie.

Assuming the breakaway series goes ahead, as someone mentioned in the "Breakaway" thread, whats to stop Moseley from withdrawing FIA events from any track that supports the FOTA series? and would the fact that F1 has a race at Spa prevent the FOTA series from running there too?

Ferrari own Mugello, Mercedes have a big interest in Hockenheim, Silverstone was off the calander anyway, maybe Maygny Cours or the Le Mans Bugatti circuit, Zolder, Assen and I'm sure I'm forgetting some circuits.

Monaco could well follow Ferrari. During the Monaco Grand Prix race weekend Prince Albert II gave an interview to the Dutch TV and more or less said the Grand Prix would follow the Scuderia.

I'd like FOTA to race at Zandvoort. Finally the Dutch will have their Grand Prix again.

There's so many good possibilities out there. I almost hope that the FIA do put a stop to FOTA using "their" tracks - it means FOTA will be forced to look elsewhere

Well that's true but i'd still like to keep Spa, Monza and Suzuka. How about Road America, Laguna Seca, Adelaide?

Absolutely - But if they're blocked then I just think there's so many other options, options we havn't seen used in literally years.

Anyone know where I can find a list of tracks that are up to "F1 Safety" standard?

I think they have control over national Grands Prix as they have to authorise the use of the New Zealand GP and Macau GP

Monaco was one of the first to give support to a FOTA breakaway series according to TV sources...
