No another rubbish Herman "no over take" track as the previous poster said find land that is what it is and don't try to "make it have character" it's like Jordan trying to make herself have character it just dosent work you can spot fake from a mile away.

Plus from my side of the world Phillip Island and Bathurst are also to tracks built around what was pre existing land and look how good they are but personally Spa is the best (as you can't race f1 at the green hell anymore)

Get rid of this clown and bring back tracks with actual character (though he can do the upgrades to the facilities as those seem good from spectator/teams/media etc)

Highest UK qualifying figures of the year, and second most watched race of the year so far.

If Sky Germany's race figures are a future reflection of Sky UK's race figures, more people watched Free Practice 3 on the BBC than will watch the race live on Sky UK.

The problem on Sunday wasn't the track design it was the large amount of dust and dirt off the racing line. There was one corner I noticed that looked perfect for overtaking, about 10 car widths (!) but no driver would entertain an overtake at it due to the state of the surface off line.

Another boring track layout with very few good overtaking spots...and super destructive curb bumps. I thought the India race was one of the most boring of the entire season. Don't really care if the fans there were enthusiastic - half of them probably got in free, or at a serious discount.

It would be nice to see tyres which don't shed loads of rubber of the racing line, at least some would be able to make an overtaking line as well, a bit of newness dust would quickly clear, especially if the vacuum sweeper wagons set to work.
