This is the problem when F1 chases the cash over truly great racing venues. Suzuka and Brazil seem to be the best tracks for a finale over the last few decades. Suzuka gets the nod from me as it doesn't seem to have the lottery effect that the weather in Brazil sometimes turns up.

Abu Dhabi is a soulless track meant purely to impress the media and investors.

The fact they payed Bernie millions to have the final race says it all really

Is it just me or is this new logo of theirs rather WipEout inspired?

It's a step in that direction, I believe Wipeout is the F3600 racing league which is likely the intergalactic successor to F1. 8-)

Sauber have confirmed they have agreed a 'multi-year technical and commercial partnership agreement' with Alfa Romeo.

The team will be known as the Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team next season, with their car featuring an Alfa Romeo and equipped with a Ferrari power unit in 2018.

“This agreement with the Sauber F1 Team is a significant step in the reshaping of the Alfa Romeo brand, which will return to Formula 1 after an absence of more than 30 years," said Fiat Chrysler, and Ferrari, CEO Sergio Marchionne.

Will be nice seeing the Alfa Romeo name back in F1 after so many years.

It also looks like Kubica was faster than Stroll and Sirotkin in the Williams, and after yesterday Paddy Lowe said they had no concerns over his ability in the long runs. Might just be seeing Kubica back for good. :mrgreen:
