Joe Saward had a great article about this in his column on www.motorsportweek.com
The demand is booming in China despite what arm chair experts think. There is a real chance that Spa could be lost to make way for new Asian races once MV retires.
MV as in Max Verstappen? Given he's only 21, that's years away - it could easily be 15+. So if that is the idea, those Asian fans could be waiting a while...
Anyway, I echo others here: please no more street circuits. There's enough of those (too many, in fact) already, and they make for awful racing. And please can we stop adding races too - I don't want F1 to become a year round sport. In recent years, I've found it quite exhausting to follow, because you get to October/November and it's still going on. I suppose my younger self would relish that, but I just feel that when the championship is a forgone conclusion and/or wrapped up with races to spare, it makes the rest of them redundant. What's the point in watching when it's over? It's like forcing NHL players to play the maximum seven game series, even though it has been decided in four.
