However, in all seriousness, what about having the GP at IMS and running clockwise, for 250 miles? The F1 Indy 250.
Doubt IMS or IndyCar would allow it. Diluting the Indy brand.

Indianapolis could be done with two chicanes, like Rafaela.

That would defeat the whole purpose of racing on an oval.

I wonder if anyone has thought of a return to Portugal? It wouldn't matter if it didn't come back, but just remember the days of Estoril and you know what I mean

Those chicanes aren't fast enough, let alone FIA-compliant.

Liberty did say traditional European races are key to its plans for the future.

You'd need a full rebuild of the garages and all the rest of it. The facilities haven't changed since the last F1 race. Seriously, there's still some old paintwork from back then dotted around.

Just like Kraft said when they took over Cadburys in the UK; the production in the UK of their confectionery was important. They then promptly closed down at least one of their major UK plants even before the ink was fully dry on the contracts.

Well, they've done quite a bit of work at Estoril since 1997, as the place was remade for MotoGP. However, because of it, I don't think the track layout is conducive to good racing; I consider Algarve a much better choice for F1 at this point.

But Liberty haven't closed down any traditional European GPs and both the French and German races are back on this year's calendar.

Yeah, I think again people are really trying to hate Liberty here. They said more Euro races, and we have two races back that we previously lost. That's not only stopped the trend of losing them but reversed it. Credit where it's due and all that.

The French GP deal was actually signed off in December 2016, and I believe that BCE was still in control then.

The German GP is returning to it's biennial slot at Hockenheim, having last been run in 2016.

And it's now nearly a year since the BRDC triggered the get-out clause, and we still do not know whether the race in the UK will be held after next year.

I'm holding on to my credit for the time being.

Oh, and I don't hate Liberty; I just don't care for either FOM or the FIA.
