Which of these F1 tracks would you like to see return?
Only one pick? I'd like to see quite a few of those return.
I voted for Turkey, but modern F1 cars at Mosport would be mental.
Okay you can now pick 3
Now if only I could've picked Anderstorp.
Magny-Cours, or anywhere decent enough to host a French GP as it is NEEDED on the schedule.
Imola would be a good alternative if Monza actually were to lose the GP, which I hope never happens.
After having some fun with modern F1 cars at Zandvoort, other than upgrading it to Grade 1 standards, I see no reason that F1 couldn't race there.
Just look up F1 seaason 1989 and you know what i want to see return
Any American city tracks such as Phoenix would be great to see again. But as the poll didn't list that option i went for Argentina
Turkey, Kyalami, Watkins Glen. I think Turkey has been copied on some new track, Kyalami is gearing up for F1 Grade 1 status, and Charlie Whiting apparently loves WG and wants to see F1 there himself.
I voted for Magny Cours, because it's a sin not having a French GP while having races in countries which have no motorsports heritage at all
F1 circuits are decided on completely different criteria today. Something with money.
Not on the list, but I'd like to see a return to the GP of Long Beach in California, USA. I voted for my second favorite though...Fuji in Japan. Love that track for some reason.
people always say they want magny-cours back but it produced some of the most boring races ever. hardly any overtaking at that circuit, although it is nicely designed.
Istanbul, Fuji, Brands Hatch. The first two because they actually had awesome racing (Fuji is miles better than Suzuka for racing, and Istanbul is the best Tilkedrome by miles. Turn 8 and awesome racing? What's not to like!). Brands would probably suck as a race, but it's an amazingly challenging track that I'd love to see modern F1 cars tackle.
In those days it was definitely a track which did not produce many passes. But now with DRS it would be much easier.
The only way I'd like to see Fuji return is if it were in the 1987-1993 configuration. Adding chicanes and such after Dunlop Corner only served to slow cars down too much in a zone that drivers never truly found their rhythm.
Zandvoort sinds it is my favourite track and home track. Would go mad if it will return.
Fuji but then as the Pacific Grand Prix. I don't want to have Suzuka removed from the calender.
And Watkins Glen. It has so much more atmosphere and history then COTA, imo.
The Phoenix layout used in '91 was awesome, despite being composed almost entirely of 90° corners. Great example of how simple track layouts with enough overtaking opportunities often produce the best racing.
And there's something about wheel-to-wheel racing in high powered machines through the streets of a populated city on rough, dirty, bumpy roads that's just wonderful
Same is true with the Bahrain GP circuit. It's a super simple layout, probably the simplest in the whole f1 calendar, yet it makes for some of the best racing because of the way the corners are arranged. All those switch-back low/med speed corners that provide opportunities for different lines and overtaking makes for some fantastic wheel to wheel racing.
Another super simple layout being the Red Bull Ring, also great for racing.
