Re: Where did all the money go?

2. Travel expense. Not only more races, but more flyaways when their base is in Europe.

The number of races doesn't matter. It's the form of the teams and drivers that dictates when the title is won or lost. So you think 1000000 races equals a decent chance of a title decider?

Hungary. The earlier the better.

On a more serious note, I always think Suzuki, Adelaide or Interlagos need to be the last or penultimate race as they always provided a spectacle. Abu Dhabi in 2010 was special as it was still technically a 4-way fight and the result pleased me.
