    I propose a new FIA policy. If CTA scores your race as 4 or less you get removed from the calendar.

    That would make the calendar a bit sparse. :o. How would I cope. I’m already in withdrawal mode for this off season.

    Bye bye Spa then!

    I have to say I'm struggling to remember much of this season already.

    Spa is always disappointing. It should give great races but rarely does.

    Im looking forward to the 9 race season. It was much better in 1950s LOL

    True about spa, its like new yrs eve alot of history hype & expection. But always disappointing. Surprised monaco was worst as i felt Australia & Spain which needs binning. Just use catalunya for testing. Were by far worse

    DRS is ruining Spa. We are robbed of excitement every time someone makes a ridiculously easy pass at the Kemmel straight.

    Really? I've always managed to get a shag and not puked over my shoes after the Spa GP. One of us is doing one of them wrong.

    One thing about Spa is that if the on-circuit action is poor the Dutch will make the off-circuit great fun. We go to know some of the Dutch in the 00s, there was one pair on particular.

    They had one milk churn, one football and one explosive of the type that are used to start avalanches. They stand the milk churn on the ground then one lights the fuse and drops the explosive into the churn, then the other jams the football into the top of the churn and the belt off as fast as they can. Ther is a bang and the football flies up in the air to above the height of the trees.

    My son used to go into the woods and return with the football for which service he got a can of beer.

    Canada did always used to be a good race but the last few have been poor. I think the downforce has made it harder to overtake and all cars are well inside safety zones on brakes and therefore it's taken away what used to make the races great there.

    British GP tops 2018 improved attendance figures for F1
    Last summer, Silverstone saw 340,000 people pass through its gates, with race day attracting approximately
    140.500 spectators.
    Those numbers topped the figures registered by F1's second best attended race,
    the Mexican Grand Prix held at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez which brought in 334,946 and
    135,407 race fans respectively.

    Yet thanks to the Ecclestone deal the circuit just about break even profit wise.

    Don't forget RasputinLives that the aforesaid gentleman hated the BDRC whose members he thought looked down on him. Gone, but not forgiven.

    Bernie was fantastic to build the sport. But in final 10 years of his "reign" he was a disaster almost every decision meant that it undid all his great work of the previous 30 yrs
