    I like these tracks lol, Catalunya is fun, Valencia is mentally challenging because its the same lap after lap. But i think this is good, the European race also needs to alternate between tracks throughout Europe.

    That'd be a good move. One less boring race per year.

    I´m not entirely sure but i think that goes for every single race track on the calendar :)

    i dont mind Valencia,the last sector is very fast,and in general i think it has some nice combination of corners,but from a spectator point of view it doesnt entertain much

    Valencia is interesting enough if to drive on if you're playing F1 video games but the race itself has been terribly boring. Last year was particularly bad with no retirements and Vettel finishing way out front.

    I'd rather see Valencia disappear and Barcelona back to its original layout, with the sweeping Banco Sabadell and without that horrifying chicane..

    But i mean this one more cause you can't see grass or hills all you see is the concrete barriers and some buildings. Just like Singapore, same thing, "concrete barriers are us" type of thing. I can see where you are coming from with the spectator side of things and would have to agree.

    True but every track is the same every lap.
    It's very wide for a street circuit too so not really as challenging as Monaco or Singapore.

    No where near as challenging, i think thats maybe why its boring. You know cause the walls aren't as close.

    The layout of the track looks very nice to drive, especially with the beautiful surroundings like the bridge etc.
    But as many has said, it´s not the most exciting race to watch.
    Last year everyone finished, that has not happened in probably 10+ years or so in F1.

    I´d say it´s not a street circuit but rather a circuit placed in a city. It´s a half breed sort of.
