They've gone mad!

They've gone mad in F1.

Canada has been dropped from the 2009 F1 calendar. *shockhorror*

I don't know what they're playing at but I don't like it.  I now no longer have a race over my birthday (which was kinda cool to have).  I don't like how some of the other races have been moved either.  It's just not right.  With Silverstone being a few weeks earlier, it's going to play havoc with testing.  I'd like to go to it again, thankyouverymuch. 

Are they trying to just remove all the American and Canadian fans?  It's bonkers I tell you.  Bonkers.  I rather liked the Montreal circuit as well...

I am really mad now! I was going to the race next year with my friends. It's the closest race to me and since Montreal is my hometown, me and my friends have agreed to meet again just for the race!

*is throwing stuff around*

Aaaaaaargh!

I know they weren't happy with the track this year, but seriously, is removing it from the calendar really necessary?! One can only hope that it goes back for the next year with a better track surface. I would love to go visit Montreal.

Well, my friends have been telling me that plans are in the works to get the Quebec and Canadian goverment in backing them up and convince the FIA (read: bribe the committee members) in putting Montreal back on the map again.

If they do, yes, I'll go to Montreal! And if you come (yeah) I'll show you all the great spots :DDDD

Seriously, the track could be fixed. What is the real reason? Not enough money I guess.

Boo Bernie!

My thoughts exactly. I liked that circuit and so did a lot of the drivers!

No they obviously don't! Otherwise they would kick out those absolutely boring tracks which pay huge amount of money and leave the great tracks which pay less on the calender. Its all about money and nothing else.
And then Bernie wonders why less and less people come to race! *shakes head*
Absolutely ridiculous!

Obviously not. It's like John McCain getting Sarah Palin... like what I did there? Bernie's shooting himself in the foot if he ever wants to conquer America and get an American driver back into F1.

Its absolutely beyond me why that happend. Does Bernie not earn enough money with the GP?
Instead they could have happily dropped Turkey, Valencia or Hungary!

Clearly Bernie wants more European races, but it's just all ridiculous. I only like Hungary because it used to be over my birthday, but not any more! Bah I say. Bah!

Have you ever been to Hungary? I have been the rain year and it was a horror. The facilities are so yuck that Spa is even good compaired to those. The trainstation is miles away and so is the bus station. You have to walk up hills for miles till you get to the track and then they don't open all the gates and you have to run around the track outside and then go back inside of the gates. You would at least 8 kilometers (mostly uphill) if you are lucky. If you are unlucky its far more!

I agree on the European races as most fans are located in Europe but why throw off a track that everybody likes like Canada but keeping crap like Hungary or Turkey? Why not get other European races instead. And the new races added to the schedule have always been Asia! So much about him wanting more in Europe. It seems like he has given up on the US!

Two races in Spain are a bit much, IMO...

I was shocked to hear that too this morning and I still quite don't believe it.

I cannot understand why they keep dumping the tracks that both the drivers and fans love and replace them with some sucky Asian circuits where people don't even watch F1. I do not aprove Bernies ideas to move towards east more and more. And seriously the marshalls in the asian races have all been horrible, slow and dumb! They do not know what they're doing and that really annoys me. That and the whole athmosphere that I've learned to love when I started watching F1 is not the same on the new circuits as it is on the old classic ones.

Bernie needs to go. Or even better why not fire all of the old dull crumpy pants who have to power to control these things and change them with someones who actually care about the sport and it's fans.

End of rant.

EDIT

Oh and also have to rant about this too. Why can't there be races in countries where lots of drivers come from or have a big history in racing. Seriously why the hell can't we have a F1 race here in Finland? We have three world champions for gods sake! Three! How many does Russia have. Or India, or Dubai. None!! *fumes*

Yeah. I agree completely. If I had the access etc to do it, I'd be a marshall, but it takes a while to travel to the circuits near me and I can't always guarantee transport so I've not done it yet.

Hmmm who to replace Bernie... Me, I'll do it! I need a job haha, and obviously I'd need my lovely friends to help me :D We can actually listen to the fans, which is what you really need to do!

It's about money, hon. I guess the Finnish government is not willing to pour money into Bernie's pockets and his bunch of goons just so they can have a race.

Poor Canadians will now try to come up with whatever ransom money Bernie is asking so they can put the race back on the calendar. What a shame!
