    The first I heard of proposal was this morning, but Santander have mocked up a video of a possible track.



    EDIT: Bit more detail on and a map of the track.

    The Arch looks terrifying.

    For scenery, that would be better than Monaco.

    I think Admiralty arch may get a little redecorated, most likely with bits of a Williams, most likely Sennas

    Sceptic reply:
    I'm not sure they'd ever get permission, F1 cars on the front door of Buckingham Palace and the Ritz? Surely someone would protest about it.... And shutting off roads and probably access to some of the biggest tourist sites for the best of 8 days? Sounds like a logistical nightmare! Is it just a marketing/PR exercise by Santander/Bernie? Also, it better provide overtaking, more like Australia/Canada than Monaco/Valencia!

    Optmistic reply:
    Another British GP? Yes please! Loving the look of the arch! It would be a spectacular setting for a GP, and going to London for a weekend to watch F1 sounds so good!

    They would need to move it a little bit to the west, so at least I could see it from the office window.

    As Lewis might say, the Admiralty Arch section would be frickin' insane.

    It looks fantastic, and it would be fantastic if it happened, but I think it may be a diversion created by Bernie to shift attention from proceedings in Germany.

    That's all we need another track like Singapore or Valencia.

    Looks alright but it'll never happen. Especially the Arch idea, as fantastic as it looks.

    F1 has gone from racing on tough tracks to racing around glamorous surroundings.

    Monaco was enough, Singapore was a bit fresh air. But now New Jersey, and talks about London and Paris, previously Romez

    This old chestnut. It is never, ever, ever going to happen.

    Correct Galahad, every so often this reappears, it will never happen and it is designed to get F1 in the papers and TV news. It works every time.
