I was saying how at the moment, the future for the current F1 calendar as we know it doesn't look so good. Quite a few tracks have various problems.
Australia: Government aren't happy about the amount of money it costs - Bernie only wants to stay if it is a night race.
Malaysia: No immediate issues.
China: Long been talk of it disappearing off the calendar, but the Government keeps funding it so unlikely.
Bahrain: Discussed to death on this forum already.
Barcelona: Funding problems, may alternate with Valencia from 2013.
Monaco: Recently renewed contract.
Valencia: As already stated, major funding issues, be a surprise if they even raced there this year.
Great Britain: Believe it is safe till some time in the 2020s.
Hockenheim/Nurburgring: Both have their own issues.
Hungary: Contract renewal pretty soon, although thought to be safe.
Spa: Long been talk of alternation with Paul Ricard, has money problems.
Italy: The talk of a Rome race died a death, so pretty safe. Could alternate with Imola in the future.
Singapore: Government unsure, talks of moving to another venue or dropping the race completely.
Korea: Talk of dropping it after just two races.
Abu Dhabi: Safe.
