izybluffen: Damn. I can only dream of it coming back to Adelaide.


A great alternative would be Melbourne and Adelaide alternating the race, but that will never happen, especially with Bernie at the helm. Really pleased that Australia will still be on the grid for the foreseeable future though, never fails to disappoint, knowledgable crowd and great racing.

sprulz: Is it possible for F1 to go to Mount Panorama?

As awesome as that would be, I understand that the short answer is no.

It would be very difficult to bring the Mount Panorama circuit up to F1 safety standards, if it were possible at all. Also, I think The Dipper causes F1 cars some problems, so the turn would need to be re-profiled (that would wreck the spectacle for the tin-tops in that particular section).

Elswagger: One of the most boring track, its like having Valencia on the calender but because its a season opener people look forward to it.

Have you ever been to a Melbourne Gp? The atmosphere is amazing. Certainly a lot better than one of those tracks in the middle of the desert where Berine seems hell bent of taking every GP.
