    Awsome, but sadly Mr.Ecclestone said today, no more then 20 races...... let's see what will happen. Hopefully I am getting it wrong....

    It's great to see Austria is back. With the addition of New Jersey, Sochi and the Red Bull Ring the F1 will have 22 races. As mentioned above, Bernie wants 20 races so 2 GP's will disappear. I'm guessing it will be Korea that'll be one of it, since that GP is unpopular and creates financial loss from the 1st Korean GP already. Second GP to be deleted from the calender ? I don't know. Maybe India.

    I hope not, it's definitely the best one out of all recently introduced tracks (yes, I like it more than CotA, it's much more "flowy").
    Besides, India is a pretty important market for the car manufacturers and the Indian sponsors would object as well.
    I wouldn't cry my eyes out after Bahrain, but it's the same thing with the market. There's just too much cash in the middle east to take away a GP from there because of annoyances like small riots or too many races.

    I hope India stays aswell. Because i really like the circuit. They have TATA motors there indeed which is quite a big car manufacturer aswell. Wouldn't mind if Bahrain will be deleted from the calendar too. Although the circuit itself is quite nice, the fact that it lays in the middle of the desert makes it less interesting + the country itself has a gained a bad reputation.

    Brilliant track. Really looking forward to seeing F1 cars go around there again. Korea needs to go in my opinion but I really hope we dont see Japan dropped. That would be a huge shame.

    AMS reports that it really might be India (for tax reasons) :O_o:
