Nothing against France hosting a GP, but it should not come at the expense of Spa. Slowly F1 is losing its history and without history, there is no future. Bernie is so blinkered, with his focus on his wallet, that he is oblivious he is killing the sport.

Valencia seems to be on the way out, maybe France could alternate with an European GP somewhere.

Hopefully both fixtures - France and Belgium - could stay in the longer term but we can't ignore the financial woes that still exist and Bernie is not going to offer a rebate that could damage the value of his sanctioning fee elsewhere.

Bernie... GET LOST!!! Stand down and give your position to someone that isn't money driven. The history of the sport is dying. I like Paul Ricard but Bernie has taken all the character out of it and painted blue lines everywhere... it's hypnotising, Spa should never be replaced or alternated... it's a crime. Paul Ricard should replace tracks like Bahrain or Korea where there is no history, it costs teams more money to get there and there is no atmosphere and hardly any fans turn up.

I would not mind seeing France have it's own GP again, but seriously... Hands off SPA! It's one of the best tracks in the world. I would rather see Valencia scrubbed.
