I hope they keep the MotoGP and dump F1. Despite the fast layout, its never been the most exciting circuit and F1 races have been incredibly sleepy and boring here. I think it suits MotoGP & WSB but F1 should be dumped (the Spanish government should save their money)

Baz....
He can only sell rights if he has something to show. Bernie needs to join the real world, He may loose more events if not.
Sponsors come for global coverage, Pay Per View is not proven that it will obtain the numbers sponsors like to see. It didn't work before and I don't think it will work now. If Sponsors start leaving! that's the life blood of the teams draining away.
AND Bernie won't loose a penny!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Go all the way, host all F1 races in eastern countries. Consider F1 dead for all Europeans, cause that's what you want Mr. Overpricing-Bernie?

Good riddance, I don't like this circuit but what next is Bernie going to up the fee for Monza and Silverstone when they are up for review. Spa, Monza, Monaco and Silverstone should have protected status.

Well done Bernie, You continue to take F1 to Countries that are corrupt and could not normally afford your high prices for the F1 show if they paid all their taxes and operated something like a legit organisation, But Bernie has little time for all that, So long as he gets the numbers he's looking for he doesn't care what colour the money is or how few people attend or the history F1 has in Europe. Europe continues to loose races because it cant compete with the fees Bernie continues to get from the middle and far East Countries.
