whereas i am not unhappy at korea being axed, remember this was a new track built to facilitate bernies travelling circus, and now the plug is being pulled. doesnt auger well for the countries that are trying to build tracks for him at present, such as russia. build a track, get a couple of races, then bye bye.

Where are the overtaking opportunities on that track?

theres a perfectly good circuit in buenos aires, just go there.

and i really cant understand these people who say 'bahrain might be cancelled, so cant XX just use that slot?' the issue isnt 'slots' its money - BE charges so much for a race they simply cant afford them

"Where are the overtaking opportunities on that track?"

You don't think a tight hairpin at the end of a 320 km/h straight could present an overtaking opportunity? Frankly I think the existing Buenos Aires track looks a bit dull...

Well, disagree if you like, but I like what I see. All those long straights with tight turns look pretty good to me, let alone the sight of the ocean, probably yachts with women taking sunbaths just like in Monaco. Cant see anything wrong with that.

talking about tilke-design tracks, people will associate it with dull, boring, bland tracks. cannot deny that based on his earlier designs. but since Buddh and Aragon won rave reviews (despite ironically being tilke tracks), enough to conclude a thing -

"regardless how boring or exciting the layout on the paper, nothing is conclusive until the track is completely build and the race is held."

computer simulation might be a good indicator, but real-time trial-and-error is still the best measurement of all.
