Azerbaijan sports minister is saying that their current deal is unacceptable.

which, coincidentally enough, is a thought shared by most F1 fans...this race is unacceptable!

The sooner it's off the calendar the better, though I did enjoy last year's race, as it was so like an IndyCar street.

It's a shame the track isn't in another country...

It's more like Macau than an indycar street circuit. OT, Singapore and Valencia most reminded me of thr 90's/00's CART street venues like Houston, Vancouver etc.

Nothing wrong with the country, but the authoritarian government.

I meant last year's race was like an IndyCar street race. Cautions breeding cautions. Drivers getting themselves back on the lead lap. Three wide down the main straightaway on the restart, not the venue itself. I doubt we will see a repeat this year.

Fantastic if it were to happen. I suppose it's way too early to know which track layout will be used?

This is Autódromo Juan y Oscar Gálvez, with the various track permutations.



If there is one layout to be ruined it would have to be the No. 15. How could the F1 Gods and Tilke not be tempted to put a chicane in one of those long straights and try to flatten the Curvon, like this layout?

When will they learn? Circuits should remain challenging, not have it lessened

One piece I've seen does give me at least a little hope. That is, Whiting seemed to think that the double hairpin was unnecessary, and the tighter hairpin at the end of the lap sounded more like a "maybe" than anything else.

Keep in mind, this is just a proposal, from the company Typse, I think the name was, which was somehow involved in the Valencia "Street Circuit". (So not much-loved, but more importantly, not Tilke proper, who one would expect will do the actual design.)

I also suspect that there will be a strong push from Super TC 2000, TRV6, and especially Turismo Carretera to retain the ability to use the existing layouts.

(Just to note, TC celebrated 80 years this past season by holding a 1000-km race over 178 laps on Layout No. 12. And Fangio won the series back in 1940-41.)

Sounds promising, I guess if the TC2000 want to keep the current layout, there's not a lot F1 can do to change it and it also helps that Charlie Whiting is against adding a hairpin, so hopefully there won't be a layout that will ruin the flow of the circuit

If they leave the circuits unique, in this case high speed flowing circuit, they will introduce more variables and the results will be more interesting.
If all the circuits are basically the same, expect the same result.
