"Ecclestone revealed that he hoped Hockenheim could again become a permanent fixture on the schedule, with the Nurburgring possibly entering a race-share with Spa-Francorchamps"

No thank you, leave Spa a permanent fixture. Hockenheim is a poor relation to the old circuit, not even worth going there now.

I read this YESTERDAY on another F1 site. Later YESTERDAY the same F1 site had posted another report stating that the Mayor of Montreal has denied that the Canadian GP is back on the calender for next year.

As for a race share with Spa and the Nurburgring - whatt a f**king joke!!!! Hockenheim is a shadow of its former self and is a real disappointment compared with the old circuit so it can go. Race shares are a joke. It didn't work with Fuji and Suzuka.

Wow, for once I agree with you andrew.

A race share would be a joke. Spa is by far the best track on the calendar and should not have to share it's date with another venue.

Sure the facilities may lack a little, but as a fan who gives a sh!t. It's all about the track and the challenge and good racing it provides.

I would rather they went to Spa 5 or 6 times a year than go to the the majority of the boring modern circuits that totally lack atmosphere and character.

Please lets have Canada back - get rid of all those lifeless, soulless money bag tracks, China, Turkey, Singapore...

I didnt say Bahrain as i actually like the track...

No Indinapolis? Good - Road America, Sebring and Laguca Seca would host better GP's, so would Millers Motorsport Park.

Who'd want a South Korean GP? India, who could afford it? Does Bernie not take this into consideration when choosing venues? Go where the car manufacturers have an interest, their big markets - aka America, Europe, certain parts of Asia.

Spa to share with Nuremburgring? Lay off the strong cheese Bernie!! Get real!

If Bernie wants to charge full rate for a race here in the States it won't happen. The governments won't spend a dime on it and the promoters won't make any money if he follows his regular business plan.

F1 isn't important at all over here and 99.9% of the population could careless about an F1 race so Bernie can't bully anyone Stateside.

@andrewm

I'm a d!ck now? I was simply noting the fact that most of the time we seem to disagree!

What is a FooAtari? It's nothing, it's a made up word. Does it have to mean something?

Your from Aberdeen too? It's not ALL bad is it? Agreed it's not great, but I come from not far outside Elgin, it's a whole lot worse.

My Dingwall / Inverness trumps Elgin and Aberdeen...

Would love to see Montreal back on the calender, glad he has dismissed the notion of going back to Indy. Of all the places to have a GP in America, Indy is not the place, the track utilised was shocking apart from the banked turn...

Spa should be considered like Monza, Monaco, and Silverstone as an untouchable...also think a German race should always remain

Jeez - three Scots holding arms and dancing around in skirts while congratulating each other on how lousy the weather is. Revel in the history and good whiskey guys. (andrewm -changed scotch to whiskey based on your guidance)

btw You can tell when Bernie is talking trash - his mouth moves.
