Petrov will have that Renault seat next year then.
If not, he'll find another race seat elsewhere. Maybe one of the new teams might want him. Atm he's probably costing Renault more with his poor performance (lower position in the constructors')...
I'm half-expecting him to end up at Hispania, he's become more valuable property for now, but are there any other Russians coming up the ranks? 2014 is a long way away.
So we're likely to start seeing rotations for tracks, I hope we don't start sacrificing European GP's for ones in far-flung places.
If they want to axe one or two European GPs then how about Barcelona or Valencia? *fingers crossed*
I don't have anything against the Spanish, it's just both circuits are unbelievably boring...
Add hungaroring to that list.
Don't add hungaroring! Rain makes it fun!
(+ I'm hoping to save enough for a race visit next year and it's the closest one )
Hungaroring and Barcelona can happily be canned, Turkey as well.
Controversial, have something against Turn 8 Krikkit? Turn 1 is pretty interesting as well, even if it is a virtual copy of Interlagos.
Valencia is the worst track by far. The only interesting bit at Valencia this year was Kobayashi on the last lap.
How about we just stop tilke from designing tracks? Theres very few if any new tracks that are worth watching imo, i used to love watching the austrian GP
Kudos to the Autosport forums for this one haha.
Buemi: "Korea very much Tilke"
I think one of the biggest issues with recent track design is the insistence on finding a huge flat piece of ground to build it on instead of following the topography like they used to. Interlagos and Spa are, arguably (i.e. imho), the best tracks in F1 and have been for many many years (yeah i miss Austria too ) and they happily follow the lay of the land over all kinds of hills and valleys.
As for going back to the USA why the hell haven't they finally bit the bullet and taken it to Laguna Seca? The track is fantastic.
Because no F1 car could get round the corkscrew without totally destroying itself. Agreed though - more undulations and stuff are needed. Bahrain's in-field section gave a bit more this year, although they're not bothering with it for next year.
A Formula 1 car holds the all time lap record for Laguna Seca , but yeah current cars would probably be in a large number of pieces after a couple of laps i didn't think about that.
They do kinda follow the natural undulations - Turkey has loads of hills!
Damn early Eastern GPs creeping up on me.

Lewis was fastest in FP1 with the Red Bulls showing their hand more in FP2 - Webber topping the timesheets. Vettel seems to be struggling though, only managing 4th and 7th fastest.
Could be a close race - 2nd practice had the top 3 covered by 3 tenths... Unless of course Webbo is driving with the handbrake on.
Looking forward to it, a nice weekend to relax and catch up with F1. Good luck to the McLaren boys, they need an epic result. Failing that, I hope Webber does well - he'll never get another chance to be world champion.
