Hardly a surprise about SK being dumped. I attended twice but very disappointed; the course is miles from anywhere, faces dreadful weather in the early autumn, and the catering largely amounted to spicy street food (hardly what the F1 ticket holders are looking for).

F1 is a yawn. i love cars but this form of racing is not interesting anymore.

i've never understood the fascination with F1 racing. aside from the start of the race, it's tremendously boring. and if you're watching from the stands, you just get to see the cars for only a few seconds. they need to put stands around the pit, where there's a bit of "excitement."

Perhaps the fact that some F1 teams had to be put in love hotels had something to do with them not returning to korea.

A race in New Jersey, within sight of lower Manhattan, is a bad idea. It should instead be a street race in Manhattan, prominently featuring a few landmarks. It would be the second greatest race on the schedule, right after Monaco. That would be a United States Grand Prix worthy of the name.

you are dreaming. takes them forever and a day to built anything - e.g .the #7 subway line extension.

Ever since the scam where the Red Bull team forced a Vettel win I've lost interest. If the contest is rigged why bother?
