some interesting corners but until the racing starts who knows right?
on the whole though im glad that S.Korea will be on the calendar. just based on the number of cars built there, this is actually a country that has a legitimate chance of embracing F1.
here's to hoping the track delivers

I think the question is just how fast a number of those corners really are. If most of them are like intersection corners, it'll be a painful "racing" circuit. If a number of those turns are actually a good bit faster than they necessarily look on the diagram, it might no be so bad. We'll see I guess. Any recent updates on how the construction is going and/or what the place looks like at present?

Someone posted a pic a while ago and my thoughts were "not looking that ready".

The issue I have with this is that it's seemingly going to be pretty flat, which is just going to make it another Shanghai but with a harbour. Or to put it another way, it's just going to be another Valencia

I think it's going to be pretty poor. Certainly not in the same league as Abu Dhabi

Not too impressed either with the shape of the Korean circuit. But let's just wait and see.
Valencia Marina is definitely Tilke's nadir, so I can only hope somebody in the city council soon realizes that it's sensible to move the GP to Circuito Ricardo Tormo instead and not continuing wasting all the money necessary to set up the temporary track each year.

The comeback of Montreal would be great, but at the time, I think Bernie is just teasing us and trying to get the Canadians to pay a higher entrance fee with the help of the fans response to the teasing announcements.

I really hope that Donington will be ready by the time the race comes around, because it surely is a great circuit and will be the best track to return to the calendar since the upcoming Suzuka this year.

I happen to think Donington won't be as good as people think it will be. As nice as the natural plunging sweeps of the Craners and the Old Hairpin are, they'll be child's play in the current generation of high-grip slick-shod F1 cars. Plus I can see it being tricky to overtake. But Silverstone hasn't exactly produced much in the way of great racing either

I'm more looking forward to Montreal's return

Wow, South Korea looks...like all of Tilke's other circuits. Zzzzzzz.

Really looking forward to the return of Canada - it's only been gone for one season but it feels like longer!

Based on what I've seen of Ricardo Tormo from bikes and the Le Mans Series, I'll take the temporary circuit over it any day; it's really that bad, imo.

And why would it be sensible to move the GP to a circuit not designed for car racing that is even more dull than the street circuit?

They should have the European GP at Jerez instead

Jerez has been barred from holding F1 GPs since Podiumgate 1997 edition

And we're not going back to Jarama either. The Spanish seemingly have a tendancy to build boring race circuits

However, Motorland Aragon seems pretty good for a Tilke circuit. I'll be keeping an eye on the WSR finale there

Jarama didn't have much land to work with, so all things considered, it didn't come out that bad. As for the designer, it's the same man who did Suzuka and Zandvoort, John Hugenholtz.

Jarama gets alot of stick, but I actually think it's got some nice turns and changes in elevation.

Unfortunately, just not too many overtaking opportunities
