Yannick should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
With the FOTA now having signed a concorde agreement until 2012 (I think it is), the choice of tracks now stays with Bernie for the time being.
But it is pretty certain that FOTA will want to have a say in which markets to go to come the time of the next renewal of the concorde agreement.

It just makes no sense to race in Formula 1 without races in the USA or Canada, the UK, France and Germany. Russia is looking to be a promising market, too, when there is a Russian driver in the series.

I don't think Russia has the motorsport fan base to be honest, commies are always up for a bit of a major engineering project, but I never heard of any plans for Lada to enter F1.

China sounded good on paper, but motor racing takes place on tarmac. They get little attendance - and that's after they have bussed in members of the party and the army in. Then again, they had that for the Olympics. No point building massive facilities when few people want to go to it.

However, the USA and those other European countries do have realistic chances of selling out races. France maybe would need a new venue, as Magny is in the middle of nowhere. Even so I wouldn't be surprised if Magny's SF round this weekend gets more French spectators than the Chinese GP got Chinese spectators, and about the same number of Russian spectators a Russian GP would get.

Marbot : "Ironically, the main difference between a Red Bull and a Virgin is that Red Bull can make parts of its car smaller and floppier."
