    not much difference really is it. like the end of triple header because not just mechianics but as a fan I feel a double header is enough. but I not a fan of F1 creeping into the festive month in abu dhabi just advent calendars & F1 just feels weird.. someone mentioned it would be 4th time its happened & the 1st time for 59 yrs. since 1963 south African GP when jim clark won on the 28th december but I guess logistically makes sense as brazil to abu dhabi Monday to Thursday seems very tough

    so good they named it twice ;)

    They did the same with Monaco ;) I just copied what they put :)

    I didn't like the triple header either, I like F1, but I don't want it every weekend thanks!

    It is not the first year of absurdity in the calendar.
    Instead:
    September 8-Italian Grand Prix
    September 22-Singapore Grand Prix
    September 29-Russian Grand Prix
    October 13-Japanese Grand Prix
    Оbviously required
    September 8-Italian Grand Prix
    September 22 – the Grand Prix of Russia
    October 6 – Grand Prix of Singapore
    October 13-Japanese Grand Prix

    After all, in addition to the money spent on the wrong logistics,
    additional nervous and physical forces of administrative and technical personnel
    of all teams are spent

    There has never been any logic to which race follows which.

    I have to agree with this:

    TMS president rips F1's "infamous indifference toward the fans"

    To be honest olegg we can go further than that. Logistically the calendar should go:

    Brazil
    Mexico
    USA
    Canada
    Britain
    France
    Belgium
    Germany
    Austria
    Spain
    Monaco
    Italy
    Hungary
    Azerbaijan
    Bharain
    Abu Dhabi
    Russia
    China
    Singapore
    Japan
    Australia

    Or you could reverse it and go the other way on alternate season.

    Do the cars go to Sochi by road or air?

    We could we need to keep tradition for me. austraila has to be the opener.
    Spain & monaco is start of European season
    Britain has to be in july,
    Hungary has to be july & holiday time.
    Beligium & Monza are after summer break.
    Brazil & Japan has to be in title run in

    Australia was always the closer for me. The summer break didn't use to exist and Brazil was second race of the season. Plus the season never went over 16 races. Traditions make way for other traditions.

    Plus of you ran it in reverse you'd get most of what you wanted anyway.

    I just looked at this years calendar again and those races run in the same order this year, so they're stupid enough to do it twice without anyone saying anything.

    Globe trotting back and forth, and all on reduced budget. Quantity over quality? Another gift to us, fans.

    Nice Q&A in the programme with Ross Brawn, he seems to think that it should be 24 races a season. Unless something is done we could actually lose 2 races, maybe even 3; that should be more of a priority than searching for more venues.

    Having the people who invented the car is probably good for F1.
