Oh dear. Sounding like New Jersey ......

IF you build this track, dear Hermann, please bring back the kitty litter you so sterilized in your tracks of late.

There is nothing like gravel traps to add suspense to any Grand Prix. You want to keep them wheels on this side of the white line? Watch the compliance with no run off area again.

Oh no, and on the last lap of the Belgian Grand Prix, The Finger has found himself beached on the exit of Pouhon!!!111!!!

Nice :)

I'd quite like to see a Russian GP but that "track" looks truly awful.
You'd think with all the praise the Austin track received it would give them a decent blueprint to follow in future, fast straights, elevation changes and the fast Maggots-Becketts-Chapel look a like complex all great, but oh no lets make it as flat as a billiard table with corners designed with cars going to the shops in mind. Garbage.

With all the negative feedback over the past few years in regard to tracks this man and his company have designed isn't it funny they keep getting contracts. Could there be conditions for any new comers who require tracks to be designed and built...just why always,Tike?

Apparently the FIA have 4 approved designers but only Tilke has ever been commissioned.

A lot of the criticism is unfair. Tracks like Austin, Sepang, Istanbul and the A1 ring are good tracks - maybe in stupid places but good circuits. Admittedly, Valencia, Shanghai and Bahrain are tedious and Abu Dhabi is spectacular as a circuit but tedious as a track.

None of them are even in the same solar system as Spa though.
