    Great post mjo :cheer:

    Hope this works... the idea is that you should select as many circuits as you would have in your ideal season. You should be able to vote for as many or as few as you want if I understand it correctly...

    No worries Jez - I can register them in the comments, after all! I appreciate that neither has held a GP yet, but having seen them in use for tin-tops, Motogp & GT racing, it'd be cool to see F1 machinery at play on these circuits (especially Portimao!).

    Jez is you voting for Valencia some sort of joke? Or are you actually serious?
     
  9. jez101

    A bit of both :)

    I know how it is officially the most hated circuit anywhere in the world bar none, worse even than Ceasars Palace, but I dislike Cataluna even more and there is just something about Valencia in the sun that looks good in the middle of summer. Boring races are the result of a couple of bad corners around the swing bridge which could be fixed I think. Personally I like the last sector. :dunno:. I wouldn't want a full season of Valencia, but along with Monaco and Singapore, I think you need another street circuit.

    ...and sometimes you need a rubbish circuit to make the ace ones seem even more ace?

    That is true but 2 street circuits would be enough for me

    Ok. If I were Bernie this is how I'd run it.

    It will be split into 3 sections and travel in a rough anti-clock wise direction round the world.

    There would be a driver champion of each section as well as an overall world champion

    There would only be a world Constructors championship

    Unless forced to by injury a team would only be allowed to change its driver selection at the ends of each section

    Each of the 3 sectors will have a 'showpiece' event(in bold) where the race is an open entry for anyone wanting to run an F1 car although obviously standards must be met and super licence held by the driver. 26 would still only be allowed on the grid so the 'showpiece' events would involve a pre-qualifying session.

    The bottom 2 teams in the Constructors championship would have to submit a 'claim' to be in F1 which woould be considered by the FIA along with any other team wanting to be in F1 - obviously proving yourself in 'showpiece' events would be valuable for anytime wanting to come into F1. There will still be no more teams than 13.

    The season would run as such:

    Oceania and Asia

    1- Australia
    2- Malaysia
    3- Japan
    4- Korea
    5- China
    6- Singapore
    7- Abu Dhabi
    8- India

    Europe

    9 - Russia
    10- Hungary
    11 - Italy
    12- Monaco
    13- Germany
    14- Belgium
    15 - France
    16- Britian

    Americas

    17 - Canada
    18- New Jersey
    19 - Indy
    20 - Austin
    21 - Mexico
    22 - Brazil

    6 tracks so far that have been voted for by all. I wonder if anyone will end up dropping any of those. Watching with interest.

    and Bahrain has a big fat zero! Are you watching Mr E?

    I didn't think everyone would - just trying to give the trip round the world some geographical logic and I thought the contient championship would mean that there was always some interest championship wise to a season right to the end even if we get a season like this one.

    I don't think you need to worry though FIAT - Bernie's stopped taking my phone calls anyway!

    I forgot to vote Bahrain, except 2010 its 2006 race had the most overtakes for a race between 1998 and 2008 without rain or safety cars.

    Yet Abu Dhabi has votes... there are no words.

    Bahrain CAN produce good races - ie 2006. But there was just a higher proportion of bad ones.

    I only chose Abu Dhabi because I wanted one Middle Eastern country represented, to be honest both are as bad as each other... I just went for the lesser evil of the two... literally.
