I am looking forward to some Honey Badger dives into Tarzan next year.
Another boring race...

We'll see. On the bright side, Tarzan and Hugenholtz being banked provides multiple viable lines through the opening sequence of corners; the guys don't have to immediately get single-file.

Anyway, now I'm seeing in Autoweek and RACER online updates that F1 may be looking at a race in Marrakech to put Africa back in the World Championship.

Hopefully if they do go to Marrakech they won't use that awful layout WTCR used last month. It was dull and hardly any passing

Mind you now Kyalami has been updated it might be an idea to go there

Dull and hardly any passing sounds just about perfect for F1

I think mixing the new Marrakech layout with parts of the older, flat out blast circuit might work. It would follow the obsession with making things Baku-like and probably be something that could be turned around quite quickly.

I reckon use the pitlane and first few corners, then turn right rather than left at the Zalagh Kasbah hotel and follow the road up the old circuit to the Mogador Kasbah; then come down the back stretch (punctuate with a bus-stop chicane if needed) then join back up with the current circuit.

It wouldn’t be amazing but it would probably do the job. Might make for an interesting compromise of high and low downforce sections.

A return to Kyalami would be great too, but from what I remember that circuit in its current form isn’t great for racing either

Rio layout revealed:

Instead of fast, sweeping corners, wonderful elevation changes and a whole bunch of character we'll get what looks like another soulless asphalt "paradise".

Oh joy.

It's an unfolded paper clip, should be fun (for carts) and a blast to watch.

Would have been so much easier and better if they had just copied the old Rio layout

if you scale it on a 1km straight you'd be looking at just over 4km ... so just over 2.5 miles. it might get close to 3 miles depending on the corner radii

The Sporting Director of the Dutch GP, Jan Lammers, has revealed that they received more than a million requests for tickets during the registration period. On Tuesday those who have applied will hear whether they have been selected.

Interesting to add is that those who have been selected will have to confirm tickets (and pay) without there even being confirmation of a date yet. One thing is sure, if they all pay in time there's no funding issue for the Grand Prix in 2020.

According to Lammers they could have sold out the Sunday six times. Maximum capacity is 105,000 spectators per day.

I wonder how many requests they have received, for tickets to the Vietnamese GP?
