People in hell want ice water, Bernie. In the photo, it looks as if the poison dwarf is blessing the masses. Ebbie is right...Greedo just wants more money.

The "Nobody needs testing" comment shows just how divorced from the reality of running an F1 team Bernie really is. :?

Problem is Bernie can not get rid of the great tracks Spa, Canada, Silverstone and others because the fan's will revolt. So he play's hard ball get's them on the 2010 calendar and then has to make room for the new $zillion deals with Abu Dhabi, Korea, India that brings him some more small change (to be fair his divorce must have cost him some serious wedge)

whereas i think that more races are desirable, particularly during the winter (southern hemisphere), i really think that bernie should be concentrating on BETTER races. these are what draws the crowds, and his income would probably be as good.

More F1 races would be good but they have to be at good circuits not the Tilke designed tripe that is the in thing right now and something has to be done to the cars to promote overtaking, otherwise more races would just prolong the agony for viewers.

A few more extra races would be great dont you think?
If only to guarantee Suzuka and Spa and possibly add Portimao and a couple of North American rounds I think would be a good thing.

That El Greedo benefits is a given anyway

For once an agreement "wow"

I would like to see the clinical tracks be gone, Abu Dhabi looked great and the massive yacht in the background is now on my Christmas list, but apart from the last 10 laps it was DULL. We need Silverstone, Monaco, Spa, Suzuka the old Hockenheim, Monza, Indy to name a few and get rid of the bore factor races Budapest......

I would like to see Bahrain, Abu Dahbi, Silversone, Monaco, Valencia, Hockenheim (current layout) dropped and replaced with decent circuits like Laguna Seca, the old Hockenheim, Donington, Buenous Aries, Zandvoort, Estoril, Assen and Brno. Le Mans (short layout) would be good also.

I always wondered what an F1 car would look like going round the "corkscrew" of Laguna Seca. I think its too short tho, in My Forza game laps are sub 1:05 in Le Mans Audis'.

Beside that Macau looks a good track, Assen or Zandvoort are good shouts too. Portimao, a Mexican street race and maybe an exotic race in croatia or bulgaria on the black sea....the oligarchs best be reading this!
