beeflin. with your listing, i suppose some of these once great circuits would not now be able to host an f1 race. but red bull ring has been updated and is suitable. i have been on salzburg ring, but this would be totally incapable of hosting a gp. you wouldnt even get a hospitality wagon down to it!
one that is a little odd, is paul ricard. bernie owns that circuit yet funnily enough he has never proposed it. maybe he cannot afford his own fees?

WORLD Championship
-At least one race on each continent.
-At least one race for each team country.
-At least one race for each driver country.
-If any others required then TEAMS to nominate country.

caroline. thanks for that info. just confirms what i was saying. it would be pretty impossible and expensive to bring some of these older circuits to grade 1, the only grade allowable for f1 races

Time to retire, Bernie! Europe is the SPIRITUAL HOME of F1! Look at the masses of empty seats at Shanghai, Malaysia and Bahrain! All the European races are packed. In fact, bring back Imola and the A1 Ring!
