The most realistic post on this thread by far is the one by Inside Track, regarding the Argentine ban on UK shipping. Those whose kneejerk response is to shout something anti-British whenever subjects like the Falklands are mentioned will no doubt do just that, but Inside Track's fundamental point is not about jingioism one way or the other, it's the very practical observation that a) Argentina is currently banning UK-originated shipping from entering its borders, and b) two thirds of the cars that would be entered for this putative Grand Prix would be originating from the UK. Even at the infamous US GP of '05, all the cars officially started by doing the formation lap. If they hadn't done so, the race would have been null and void. Even Ecclestone can't organise a GP with only eight entries.

In saying "the most realistic post on this thread by far", i was unfairly overlooking the two posts which quite reasonably asked "since when was the Korean GP axed?", without anyone being able to answer them.
