  2. What Bernie wants...
  3. How much? And he doesn't want to invest any of his own money on the Montreal track which he owns? Nope. Taxpayers must foot the bill there, otherwise, he's gonna dump it again. :(
  4. Why do we need another boring street circuit.
    The cars will start collide together.
    Pace car or red flag will be deployed to maintain track.
    Restart and the same again.
    A 200 mile race turns into a 100 or 150 mile race as you don't race under caution or red flag.
    Grandpixs are to short for that fiasco.
    What is wrong with Houston the best track the USA has used. Or Laguna Seca.
    If you want a ridiculous race watch the IRL series.

  6. I would love to see F1 at Laguna. But it's a little bit small for F1, no? Toyota did some laps round there a few years back with a V10 (youtube it, it's awsome), but the driver Ricardo Zonta questioned whether the track, in it's current guise (barriers, runoff, etc), complied with the then current F1 regs. But wow, F1 at Laguna Seca would be utterly amazing. I love that circuit.
  7. A few reasons they don't race at Laguna. The owners of Laguna will not upgrade the pits, they won't upgrade the safety to F1 standards and the track is too short.
