Maybe they'll get a race to replace the non existent 21st July event?
Rising number one of Formula 1, Juan - Juan, one wonders should Juan only win one Formula 1 one year, would Juan have won that one in round one, Juan??

That's been shot down too. I say F*ck it, the less willingness there is from venues to jump at an opportunity to host a race, the more pressure is put on the troll to relent and the more leverage the classic circuits have. Supply and demand... and it's looking like demand is soft like his octogenarian pee pee.

That would be a cut your nose off to spite your face thing then. Economics 101 if he can't fill the existing slots, then the other venues have more leverage to tell him to go screw himself since he obviously can no longer fill the calendar with willing participants.

At which point did Allan McNish transfer from Sky Sports to the BBC? Nice to see him on the FP coverage for Monza.

Good to see the BBC poaching pundits from Sky, rather than how it was before... :P
