Having watched a bit of Formula E today, I heard that they are reversing the circuit overnight to run 'backwards' tomorrow. I think that this is a great idea and a fantastic way to get a couple of races in at the same location, but not with the feeling of having run the same race twice. I feel that this is particularly interesting as an F1 fan especially in light of the direction that F1 is going in terms of having sprint races as well as a Grand Prix.
Now, we all know why we can't run current GP circuits backwards (mostly safety issues) - but is this something that circuit designers should look at when building new circuits? Effectively two circuits for the price of one, however there is no doubt that there would have to be compromises in terms of the design to facilitate this.
Are there any circuits that can currently do this? Tempelhof is literally a big area of airport apron so that doesn't really count to me. I'm fairly certain (with no research) that there are no grade 1 circuits that can do this otherwise we'd probably have seen it in F1 already.
What are peoples thoughts? Is this the future?
