Please, no more Tilke....There should be an open request for tender to build circuits, get some competition and new ideas out there instead of calling up the same company every single time. Having 1 or 2 good corners on a 15-turn racetrack is not enough!!!!

And on that same note, enough street circuits....

For the love of God NO! Enough already. The reason circuits around the world evolved to create different challenges for the drivers (and different atmospheres for the fans) is because there were different characteristics, not just of terrain, but of the mindset of the people involved.

Silverstone, Monza, Nurburgring, Spa, Monaco.....these circuits did not come off the drawing board!

Seeing as F1 usually does the exact opposite of what race fans want, maybe we should start praising Tilke's circuits and demanding more of them on the calender? If that happened, he would never be used again.
