Hopefully by the time negotiations need to take place, Bernie is long gone and we have someone more sane in his place.
I'm afraid we'll have one with even less interest in F1 and even more interest in mon€y. All traditions are abandoned to get CVC's debts paid. I really hope F1 will get a rival series.
Anyway, some people argue here a night race is too late. Well, the Australian Open final ended at 2 am. OK, the noise could be a problem, but a start time of 9 pm doesn't look bad. That'd be 9 am UK time, and the race would end at 11 pm Oz time. As a European fan, I'd prefer the night race, but after all, it's quite the same as long as the Oz GP remains in calendar. Of course, lighting systems cost, so night race doesn't make sense unless it's necessary. And, of course there's the question whether having a race makes sense at all. I hope Australia do all they can to secure the race's future.
