Remember the Turkish Grand Prix? Well, irrespective of your answer to that question, it looks like the gears have been set in motion to see it's return in the coming years and possibly as early as next season. The new Moustache-laden-Bernie-Ecclestone, Chase Carey, has been meeting with the President of Turkey, Tayyip Erdogan, and according to Autosport, a deal has been agreed to in principle, but nothing has been signed yet. The Turkish Grand Prix circuit was previously on the F1 calendar from 2005 to 2011 and quickly became renowned as one of the best tracks of the season. Despite being designed by the (in)famous Hermann Tilke, the track itself is a masterpiece for Grand Prix racing resulting in a highly satisfying experience for the drivers, and great racing for the fans. The track's signature feature is undoubtedly the incredible "Turn 8". A flatout, quadruple apex left-hander in which cars would routinely reach in excess of 280km/h. With these new breed of F1 cars having vastly more power and downforce, this would truly be a sight to behold. But, as ever questions must be raised as to the ethics regarding the host nation. This is yet another example of Formula One racing in a country with horrendous records of human rights abuse and tin-pot dictators (Erdogan is a proper nutjob) - among other things - simply for the purposes of profit. Others include China, Bahrain, Azerbaijan and Abu Dhabi. All places that are simply on the calendar for the money, rather than the circuit quality or demand for F1 in their respective nations. In the latter stages of F1's first venture in Turkey, it was painfully apparent that the attendance figures were a complete flop as inflating ticket prices combined with the ever deteriorating state of the country resulted in races with more mechanics in the pit lane than spectators in the grand stands. Whether or not this will be a success remains to be seen, but we await in scepticism. What do you think? Is Formula One returning to Turkey a good idea? Sure, the new cars will be spectacular around what is admittedly a brilliant track, but do the off-track politics cast too large of a shadow over the event as Formula One yet again delves into dictatorship nations?
