If tracks cannot host F1 profitably they should threaten to pull out. It is not the government, or the EU's responsibility to line Bernie's pockets. The current and proposed F1 hosting fees are scandalous and will only be reduced if the tracks band together and force the prices to be reduced to a sensible level.

This mess has little to do with f1. The local goverment of Rheinland-Pfalz invested 500 million of tax payers money in new Infrastructure since 2009 ( theme park,two hotels, pubs, clubs, whatever) This has flopped.

Ecclestone has offered the Nurburgring a free race for next year ... But the eco-nutters in local government think it's still too expensive.

The race generates $75 million in positive economic impact for the region.
