F1 » Toro Rosso: Re-instating Bahrain would be complex

Gianfranco Fantuzzi: Putting the [Bahrain] race back on the calendar later in the year would be very difficult. Replacing it with another event in Europe, to restore the calendar to 20 grand's prix, would be more straightforward.

Could not disagree more. The last thing we need is another euro race. Too many as it is. It's supposed to be a World championship not a 'Euro cup'. Have you attened a Bahrain F1? If you had you would know what a wondeful experience it was. It was onlt the 2010 race that was dull the rest have been excellent. I can think of many dull Euro races. I'm sure you could to.

Daniel, how often does this happen? Once every 15 years. No-one will want to keep their circuit in readiness for an F1 race if they only get a race once a decade. And there are another 19 races this season so losing this one is no big deal. If it was the last race of the season and the championship was in the balance then it would be a big deal, but at this stage it doesn't really matter.

They could enforce a shutdown between the last test & Melbourne, as per the summer break. Then reduce the summer break and hold the race in that time perhaps.

Justin, I don't think that would be popular. All the people who work at the factories will have already booked family holidays for that shutdown period. And as I said, its only one race and no points are on the board yet, so what does it matter if we only have one less GP this year than the schedule listed. It was already the biggest schedule ever anyway.
