    I'll kick you off with Chase Carry meeting the oh-so-liberal Recip Erdogan:

    Turn 8 plus the rest of Istanbul Park to return?

    Great news if Turkish Grand Prix is returning, was a great circuit & turn 8 without doubt is 1 of f1 greatest corners up there as good as Pouhon Maggotts/Becketts, Parabolica, Tabac & Eau Rouge. Because that was such a challenge near flat out four apex 180 degree corner i know just from playstation how tough it was because you have to be perfect in any of 1st 3 apexs as slight error you either have lift off or lose more time going wide

    Turkey, there's is no better place on earth, a country in which democracy thrives and human rights are a valued.

    Anywayyyyyyyyyyyyyy, politics has nothing to do with sports, so lets get on with it.

    To be honest we cant say much about historical politics as we wouldnt race anywhere Azerbaijan China Italy Germany Russia USA Bahrain Abu Dhabi Brazil all have dodgy histories or dodgy politicians

    It was a sarcastic reference to Turkeys current situation not historical as you say we would not be racing in most countries as they all have had plenty of blood on their hands and not only those you mentioned because you are forgetting two countries namely Japan and the U.K. - or as it was referred to in past times: "The Empire in which the blood never dries".

    Malaysia will be gone after 2017, so I guess that's where Turkey comes in. France to return too, of course.

    Only because I used to have a field day giving it the beans every April in the mid 90's... The Garde used to strike for more money about that time leaving the roads free for a bit of Murphy's fueled hooliganism :/

    Amazing how much fun you could have in a Fiat Cinquecento...

    Anything could piss all over Silverstone.
    That race is made by the people, not the circuit, these days (well, at least 25 years).

    Here's 2018:
    FIA announces World Motor Sport Council decisions

    All change in the Caucuses! Sochi takes Sepang's slot in September; Baku slots in to April. Baku's empty June date goes to Le Castellet. Does that mean the French Grand Prix will be a single week after Le Mans? I suppose it neatly bisects Le Mans and Le Tour, so might well get a page or two in L'Équipe.

    Most media reports have attempted to pretend that Hockenheim continuing to occur in even-numbered years is news. Shanghai and Singapore are both asterisked. I suspect Singapore will make it; I struggle to have the same confidence about Shanghai.

    No proper shocks though.

    True. That'd be France/Austria/GB. Not sure that the best way to attract higher TV viewership is to put a triple-header up against the globe's biggest televisual sporting event, but what do I know?

    Bernie would have struck a deal for that if he could; I don't think Allah was up for it... Busy elsewhere?
    (Same as I am, when the Abu Dhabi GP comes around).
