I just wish that they had been able to do the 'new' A1 ring incorporating the remaining part of the old circuit as well. That was on the cards but the environmental lobby poopood it. ~x( Hey ho. Best be thankful that the circuit is back open as it was in a shocking state about 2 years ago. - worse than how Donington Park was left after the GP fiasco.

I don't think that it will host F1 though as Red Bull stated that they didn't want to - originally. Minds can change though, I am sure. If financially viable, perhaps it will. It is a much nicer circuit than barcelona and valencia - combined. Get F1 back to its heartland :ymapplause:

Nice vid though.

Here's the old and the 'new'. Which do you prefer?
