    No argument from me for that. Because a cost cap & level playing field would bring great racing

    But i think telemetry has taken something away from F1. As in Pirelli era sometimes its just engineers telling the drivers how to drive by data. Not allowed to push into the unknown anymore

    Well Fernando seems to have already heard the drums and decided to follow the money.

    Carey admits existing races will be replaced - Pitpass.com

    If, as the article says, Monza is replaced, I wonder if Ferrari will continue in F1.

    Monza and Silverstone have been about to be dropped from the F1 calendar for about 20 years now. Frankly I'm bored of reading about it.

    He makes it certain, the bottom line is the bottom line; it's all down to to the size of the bid.

    Have they looked at the audience size for the races, I suspect that the highest are the ones which are timed for the European and US markets

    There is a difference this time: FOM is even more money-grubbing than Bernie was, plus the latter at least had some appreciation for the history of the sport.

    One by one, over the years I have seen truly great circuits such as Rouen, Nurburgring, Spa, Clermont-Ferrand, Zandvoort, St. Jovite and Watkins Glen (you youngsters have no idea what you have missed) dropped from the calendar. While I prefer Brands Hatch over Silverstone, for me, the thought of losing the British and/or Italian races would, to me at least, mean the death of the sport that I have followed since the early 1960s.
