Some might argue that the Argentine GP is one of the most classic of them all. Of course, arguably the greatest driver in history is Argentinian.

With any luck, China or Malaysia might bite the dust.

I'm a great admirer of Fangio and when people talk about Schumacher etc as being the greatest ever I don't think they begin to realise how much Fangio dominated his era. 24 wins out of 52 races. A lot of drivers these days have 52 races before they get on the podium.

But this isn't about the driver. The article suggests they are looking at a street circuit, not the Beunos Aires Autodrome and points out that Bernie likes street circuits because they are more photogenic. So its not about how good the racing will be, its about how it will look to advertisers and sponsors.

I don't mind a few street circuits. As long as they have the challenge of a street circuit.

Monaco is a bit too mickey mouse, allows next to no passing whats so ever but it requires supreme driving

However Valencia had as much runs off as any convential circuit. F1 should look to America for some great street circuits that have the challenge of requring presition driving and making no mistakes but also has some good passing opertunities.

Would love to have an Argentine GP. The question is. Two South American GP's, yet no North American GP's? That is just plain dumb.

If any race is to fall by the way side it will be China. V8Supercars struggled their, despite great racing and the Chinese promoter (Greenland group?)didn't pay the sanction fee in full and was later found guilty of fraud. MotoGP is AFAIK not going back either. Dismal crowds. Same for F1.

Malaysia should stay, it provides good racing and they attract a decent crowd!
