    That would be nice to have another extra race in Europe again, Besides that its a fantastic track to race.

    Nothing beats the old Oesterreichring layout (in grey) though.

    Salzburgring doenst have enough runoff area for F1 I think. Epic track during the 80s/90s with 500cc GP machines.

    Great vid though.
