As long as we're first up I have no qualms. I like being the opening Grand Prix!

Correct me if i'm wrong, is next years Japanese Grand Prix in Suzuka?

It is in Fuji... SADLY!

I was hoping to get to the Australian and/or Malaysian GP's but a project as work has arisen so it doesn't look like I'll get leave at that time! DAMMIT

Maybe Singapore then... :eusa_think:

I like it! Good that there's only a one week break between first and second races.

A nice long calendar, good stuff.

Bugger, it would have been good to have a beer with you at the GP Wez.

The 3 day test in Malaysia is off this year aswell.

---------------------------------------------------

The FIA have given no reason why Monza and Spa have been swapped, have they? Probably is no reason.

Why do they have to give a reason for everything?

I think it was probably due to Monza or Spa having other commitments....

No ofcourse they don't have to give a reason for everything, I just thought that they might of that's all.

Your right the swap probably is due to other commitments with the tracks but even then I should imagine that F1 has more priority over other categories. Hence my question of "why". Not that I really care a great deal anyway.

well, with Canada provisional and Singapore and Valencia as well we might just have a 15 race year, and that will be bad

India, as the press reports, will have atleast a 10 year deal

Is Valencia a Street Race?

or is it that Dud track which occupies winter Testing?

It's because of the weather

It's a street track and I don't see the reason for it. They might have used the regular track, it's not so badand is SAFER

Thanks Christiano BTW it's good to see that the track is safe but you also want to see a track with fast sweepers and massive braking zones for decent overtaking.

Oi could someone Post up the Track map for me please?

I havent seen the track yet ukno.

Robert Kubica's horror crash at Montreal has made fair that there's still a lot of danger racing in street circuits, expecially beacuse of the walls....Monaco is different, it's a very slow track, but imagine what would have happened if a crash like the one that involved Kubica and Trulli had happened under the tunnel in Monaco? I don't even want to think at it...

And I still think that street circuits never make way for good overtaking, expecially with F.1 cars!

Simple solution. Get rid of the Street tracks and put the formula one cars on Ovals!

you see I can fix anything.

Thanks Elgo for the clip.

looks like a really slow track to me.

If they wanted a track in Spain why dont they just goto that brillant track called Jerez?
