What awful news.

So, we loose Spa, Europe's finest circuit, every other year, so F1 can go to a country where few really care about anything except waving their national flag. Not the traditional white one, but the tricolour they sometime use.

Lets kill Spa for a sanitized Barcelona type track.
They already have a Francophone race in Montreal, no reason to lose an Iconic track like Spa.
the next one on the block will be Monaco..

This is a crime to all the historic tracks

We loose Spa every year to a track that has had it's characteristics taken away by Bernie, I wouldn't mind going to France if he lost the unattended and mediocre tracks like Korea or Bahrain where no one turns up and the races are boring. They have no care for the sport just the money and we lose one of the greats... thanks Bernie... you idiot!

It's very sad for SPA but don't blame the french.

What a stupid and useless comment from "Merde - Unregistered"
We have more than the right to have our own grand prix again.

@arcuid, You got that right. Valencia is about as exciting as a performance of Swan Lake.
Spa epitomizes Formula 1.

ARTHUR: Who's castle is this?
FRENCH GUARD: This is the castle of my master Bernie de l'Ecclestone.
ARTHUR: Go and tell your master that we have been charged by God with a sacred quest. If he will give us food and shelter for the night he can join us in our quest for the Belgian Grand Prix.
FRENCH GUARD: Well, I'll ask him, but I don't think he'll be very keen. Uh, he's already got a French one, you see?
FRENCH GUARD: Now go away or I shall taunt you a second time-a!... (Fetchez la vache!)
