F1 » Spa set to alternate F1 dates?

The Belgian GP may soon be appearing on the F1 schedule on alternate seasons, if rumours of a possible deal with France is to be believed.

Should keep the 'green' nutters happy, as they've been trying to have the race scrapped for years ... They get compensation from FOM for the noise, strange how they never ask for compensation from the 24hr race at Spa, which one would assume is at least as loud and for much, much longer.

I'd love the return of a French GP but not at the expense of Spa.
It's disgusting that Spa could be axed simply because Bernie could make more money elsewhere. It's the fans and drivers favourite track, it has a rich history of great F1 races yet that adds up to nothing when it comes to BE's utter greed.
F1 needs an independant body that protects the interests of the sport from this odious little man, is money really the only thing thats sacred to him?

We're lucky Spa is still on the calender to be honest.

That odious little dwarf and the local government have been trying to kill it for years.

Eugh, the painted tarmac paradise of Paul Ricard.

Ugliest venue in the world from the TV viewers perspective, narrowly beating the desert of Bahrain.

I want the Austrian and French GP's to return... Spa should never be removed from the calendar... EVER!!! It also should never alternate either. When will Bernie realise places like Korea, Abu Dhabi and Bahrain should not be on the calendar... especially if the greatest track int world isn't on it.

I would suggest alternating Bahrain with Valencia and any other boring track so we don't have to suffer them more than once in a while, I mean, Valencia was boring even with all the "artificial overtaking" that many complain about and F1 should keep ALWAYS Spa, Monza, Montreal, etc.

They took Spa off the calender once before and there was an outcry and I was part of it. Spa is the best F1 course in our modern era, period. Always exciting, always weather and always great. Fast and long and high up with evalation changes, fast, slow corners, etc. If they add a race, so what? All F1 venues should feature 3 or 4 proper races per weekend. Nothing wrong with other fans attending. But alternate seasons suck. Just let them race Friday, Satday and Sunday. Easy greesy.

Spa, the marvel queen of the F1 tracks through the years,as for geometry, nature and weather almost perfectly balanced is now facing Bernie's loaded dice .Should its one of a kind history and fans' neverending support counterbalance such a fate ?Looking back not further than the last few years and similar stories, the answer it's rather obvious ..

No surprise that the French are happy, I doubt anyone else is. I totally agree Spa is the best circuit left on the F1 calendar, whereas Paul Ricard is just a sea of coloured concrete. I have said before, if that's the best the French can come up with, they don't deserve a Grand Prix.

What about Dijon? Oh, I suppose Bernie doesn't own it, or he doesn't think the corporate hospitality suites are good enough.
