I don't think that average figures from 2007-2012 and 2004-2009 necessarily catch the current reality.

I don't know the recent numbers or if there is even any publicly and reliable data nowadays in Turkey about it, but I know people have been protesting in the streets against those murders since the beginning of this year.

Turkey is a solid one, but the rest looks like "highest bidder gets to host".

And what's with the brand name barrage in the GP names?

Sponsored GP names dates back many decades. The first one I see in historic lists is the 1967 Player's Grand Prix of Canada, followed by the 1971 Woolmark British Grand Prix. By the mid 70's and certainly in 80's it looks like many GPs had tobacco or alcohol companies in their names. The prevalence of GP sponsors may have decreased at times, but certainly in the last decade almost every GP has had a title sponsor

I have heard that F1 is actually paying most of the circuits to host races this year. Without fans the circuits can't make any income and can't afford to host, but F1 really can't afford to skip a season. Turkey is actually the first GP on the calendar that plans on being open to fans and has a potential to earn an income

Not true. Mugello is the first one. Prices, however, are utterly rubbish for what will be offered (nothing).
Portimao will be open to spectators as well, as will Sochi.

If, instead, you mean the only race with the potential of actually turning a profit this year, then you're double wrong. Nobody ever cared about F1 in Turkey and attendance has always been very low, even without a global pandemic. They (the organizers) claim that they can safely house 100k spectators, not a chance even a fraction of that is going to show up. They (the people) never did when things were normal, they never will now.

Thanks for the correction. I did not realize those earlier races planned to be open
