It must get in the way of their view. Seems like a crap idea to me, I cant believe it wont effect their driving

For a race track where the designer was given a blank canvas and a super-sized shed full of cash to create something; he did a really s*** job.

Yeah, dreadful. It's a shame that it'll stay on the calendar due to money. Wish they'd go back to ending the season at a real circuit such as Brazil.

Provisional race calendar has been released and the piece of s*** track is once again the final stop.

They should flip it and stick Abu Dhabi as the first race (which would make sense logistically as Bahrain is next on the calendar) and put Australia as the final race. Late-November is early summer in Australia so it's not like the whether would be an issue. If possible knock Japan down a bit and end on Brazil > Australia > Japan or something.

Personally I prefer the s*** tracks to be last. If the Championship is over by the last race, at least a good track isn't wasted.

That's a fair point. But then it's always a case of what if it does go to the wire and you're lumbered with a s*** track. It's 50/50 I guess.

And perhaps the s*** tracks hamper any end of season excitement

Booked my flights to Marseille in June for the French GP - £154 each, not too bad. Got the villa with pool booked before F1 dates were confirmed so got it for a bargain price <diva>
