I agree. I always try and watch qualy live. Especially Q3. Something about those last few minutes that has always grabbed me from the first days of F1 coverage.

It's good to watch and quali can be something interesting, but Q3 is the best. It's always down to the wire with that

I would disagree with this view slightly.

The end of each Q session can be the best to watch, depending on the situation.

Seeing who makes it out of each Q, and which teams/drivers have miscalculated is more enjoyable (IMO) than watching the best teams demonstrate their superiority in Q3.

For example, Aus GP - McLaren and RBR miss Q2 or Mercedes set a 1-2?

Liberty has claimed a target of 25 races, so they add races in dubious countries without losing the classic racetracks.

Keep checking the progress at Zandvoort. It's going to be an amazing track, with those banked corners: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pYtL...Ts&app=desktop

Circuit is looking really promising, one of the most interesting on the calendar, really love the height changes during the course of the lap!
And the banking!

I am still really interested to know how the F1s and more particularly the Pirelli tyres are going to handle those 19 degree banked corners, given Indy has 9.5 degree banking, and we all know what happened there with the Michelin tyres. The oil systems in the engines may get "interesting" too.

I looked at that and was going to jokingly say that I had no interest because the roller coaster right didn't go next to or over the race track. Then I looked at the rest of the images and then holy cow! Apparently they are considering doing that! Would they run the coaster during the race?



The images show a very lush setup. Do they have the water to maintain that level of green?

Also has anyone mentioned that the circuit was designed by Alex Wurz and not Tilke Engineering? Now, it's my understanding that companies like Tilke Engineering is not just drawing the outline of the circuit on a napkin, but are full service designers/architects in that they understand what is needed at a modern F1 circuit. Who is the Architect/Engineering firm for this project? I assume they brought in Wurz to do the layout? And I assume some of this is to avoid the "Tilkedrome" label (no guarantees that Wurz will do any better of a job).

I probably would have little interest in all of the other stuff. But amenities right at the tracks are always nice. Sometimes if you want to eat, it's either track food (hit or miss on quality and then always expensive) or usually travel miles away for good food and lodging.

I have mixed feelings. It could be that new track construction in the middle of nowhere with nothing else going on are just not viable. In the end, chances of me attending this race in person? Nearly zero.

Richard

One of the exceptions to the rule is Suzuka, which is fairly remote (a good 8 hour drive from Tokyo), which forms part of a motorsport resort with a hotel (where most if not all the teams and drivers stay, restaurants and amusements for all the family.

And the track-side catering for the spectators is pretty good too, with a huge spread of different cuisines to cater for both the Japanese tastes and for visitors from further afield. And very reasonably priced, to boot.

Well Saudi Arabia have already got the Dakar Rally, now they want to have a GP. What next? I just wonder if it's going to replace one of the two GPs already in the Middle East
