F1 » F1 2010 calendar altered


The 2010 Monaco Grand Prix looks set to be brought forward by a week to ease the logistical nightmare of having a race in Turkey just seven days later...

Glad to see Montreal back on the Calendar. Now how about a race in the US as well? (please not at Indy though)

In any case, I thought Spa was out because of neighbor complaints and a judgement ruling that they couldn't race on Spa until 2017 or something... I hope it's on, as it is BY FAR the best track out there...

When's that * going to disappear? Really would like to see Canada permenantly on the calender

Spa, the best track of the season, is still up, but for how long :rolleyes:

Portimao must be on the calender soon though, is much much better than Valencia (although it doesn't take much!) as well as many others on that list.

:D

Yes, agree...bring back the US GP but please... what about Laguna Seca? One of the best and most challenging tracks in the US.
Agree that Singapore and Valencia suck but please... Monaco is fantastic...I love it!
And yes...SPA, SPA, SPA!!!! Hope it NEVER leaves the F1 calendar.

So Turkey is being put back a week because its a long way from Monaco. But there is only a week between Australia and Malaysia, and Singapore and Japan which are a darned sight further apart. Canada can't stay in the calendar long if it's the only race in N America. I thought the FIA wanted to cut costs, or is Bernie subsidising the travel costs ? What a stupid question ! There are several great tracks in the US but there all have issues with either noise and use restrictions, safety levels and pit facilities that scare away F1 teams, and let's face it, most Amercians find F1 boring when stacked against NASCAR or Indycars, and it's getting to the point were I am agreeing.

I am glad that Canada is provisionally on the 2010 calendar, I just hope it isn't removed. I'm looking forward to seeing all new teams and Ihope BMW can get back on the grid :rolleyes:

I agree with Paul Buckland - there are many great historical F1 tracks in the US that can be considered but with today's speeds and other "improvements" those good old tracks find themselves on the outs when being considered for F1. That is too bad.
