So it seems that during free practice 2. Bernie signed a 3 year extension to monza hosting a formula 1 grand prix.

Good news in my books.

The Curva Grande is a straight. At some point in the past it was something more, but calling it a corner for modern F1 cars is a bit silly. Personally, getting rid of the horrid Rettifilio chicane will more than compensate for me.

Cars running side by side, which they often do, round the Curva Grande is far more entertaining and challenging that running side by side on a straight.

I was certainly glad to hear that Monza will continue to be a feature of the F1 calendar, and I'm ambivalent on the track layout changes. Some seem good, some not so good, most fairly neutral; I don't think they're going to either ruin the circuit or vastly improve it. So all in all, good news to me! :thumbup:

Good news.

F1 needs to old type tracks like Monza, Spa, Suzuka, Monaco and Sao Paulo and hopefully they will leave them alone instead of bastardising them like they've done with Hockenheim, Osterreichring and Silverstone.

The usual, as I understand - the motorcycle people want them. They're to blame for the paved-over Parabolica as well, for that matter.

Parabolica is getting its gravel back next year.
