    As boring as the Spanish GP can be, it has produced some interest recently, although perhaps not much overtaking. The infamous Ham / Rosberg shunt allowing Max's maiden Red Bull drive to victory, and Grosjean's wheel-spinning mayhem this year. I'd be especially concerned for it's future if not for the testing as I've just bought tickets for the 2019 'race'.

    It should be Monaco because it's crap, but it will be Silverstone because of money.

    To be honest, Silverstone is pretty crap too. Especially since they "upgraded" it.

    Yes Donington would be far more interesting.

    I think they'd rip the soul out of Donington to upgrade it to F1 spec.

    They'll replace Silverstone with a street circuit eventually.

    You won't see a dedicated F1 circuit once it's gone.

    Apparently the victim could be Brazil given the security troubles and the poor facilities which Bernie panned in the past which is worrying for a country with great F1 history

    Silverstone as long as Hamilton is in the sport and with two new Brits will stay.

    Andyoak street circuit seems to be appeal for modern F1 given all FE races are raced on street circuits

    Red Bull having announced the 2nd driver at Toro Rosso yet as Albon was confirmed as an entrant for the FE 2018-19 season for Dams

    An interesting twist is Dan Ticktim is 5pts away from F1 superlicence to race in F1 having won in Macau and can race a winter series in Australia or New Zealand and gain those points to be allowed to race in F1

    So will Red Bull delay their decision on this seat now... Hartley definitely aint staying - the fall out between him , the team and Gasly has widened

    After his second Macau victory last weekend I have Ticktum on 37 points and needing 40.

    25 for runner up in F3 2018
    5 for Macau win 2018
    5 for Macau win 2017
    2 for MSA Formula 2015.

    The British governing body can (and will) award him an additional 5 discretionary points, however in the past these have only been used to gain a grade A international license not a superlicence. Ticktum is waiting on clarification from FIA whether he can use them for the superlicence.

    I think if they say he can then he'll be in. If not I think he'll race in New Zealand in Jan but they won't give him the race seat as he won't have enough time for testing.

    I would assume that dan ticktum would be going into F2. He already racing this weekend in Abu Dhabi. Done very well on his debut Qualified 14th half a second off albon. looks like he going to just get some experience for next season

    Ruslan We think its Albon given Mick Schumacher and Ticktum seem to be heading for F2 . Red Bull will not sign Ocon given his links to Mercedes and his rivalry with Verstappen especially after Brazil fall out

    Camara has signed for Mclaren and Red Bull must be desperate if they go for Gelael
